As their commercial fortunes as the Thompson Twins diminished significantly during the latter half of the '80s, Tom Bailey and Alannah Currie relocated to Currie's native New Zealand, rechristening themselves as Babble. Although it wasn't the quirky new wave-inflected pop of their former act, Babble wasn't a major departure either, focusing more on the moody, dreamy feel inherent in hits such as "Hold Me Now" and "Lay Your Hands on Me." With its Eastern flavorings and weaving new age ambience, Ether, the duo's 1996 release, doesn't build on The Stone, their initial offering, resulting in a pleasant — if fairly unadventurous — listening experience.
