I absolutely love live instrumental performances, and the collection of music on this album does NOT disappoint. Subtle, graceful and at times epic, this is great music to write to, think to and reflect upon.
Favorite track: La Boite A Musique (Live).
We Are All Astronauts
What can I say... as incredible as ever, but with even more presence. An exceptional live recreation of highlights from two of my favourite albums.
Favorite track: A Thimble Full of Sorrow (Live).

This Hammock album stands out of the crowd of the other Hammock albums. Not that those are worse, its just that this one is so unique yet still retains the Hammock identity. Its as if you have entered a french cathedral of angelic hymns and you are staring god in the soul. zero_requiem00
