    Earlier this year, anniversaries of PG1, Long Walk Home, Live Blood and IV (Security) were celebrated.

  • I love the album, and loved it when it came out. I remember it we'll, as I was just setting out on a > 1 year long trip abroad, and the album was one of the soundtracks to that very crazy time. I thought it sounded very sophisticated, dense and lush - and I still do. It's got some beautiful moments on it, like the chorus of Darkness, and I Grieve. It's all so layered and textured that there's something new to discover each time.

    It's my favorite PG solo album.

    One of the best reviews I have ever read.
