Album Review

Flawlessly executed tracks brushed with Indian, Turkish, and South-East Asian sounds punctuate Single Gun Theory's lush dance grooves: one that ultimately fails to convey the depth suggested by the new age themes and multicultural music. Kath Power's lyrics are emotive, yet Jacqui Hunt's vocals cast a veil of detachment on proceedings; a tendency successfully pushed to the limit in the rarefied ballad "Great Palaces of Immortal Splendour." The coldness dissipates during the sample-laden singles "I Am What I See" and "From a Million Miles," but aptly sounds almost psychotic on "Man of Straw." Like Stars in My Hands... brought national prominence to the trio in Australia, and their sampled, catchy style lent itself well to film — several of these tracks found there way onto Australian soundtracks while "I Am What I See" was used as the theme for the ABC-TV's Review program. Like Stars in My Hands... makes an excellent introduction to Single Gun Theory's dance before the follow-up Flow, River of My Soul would mark a more laid-back ethereal direction.

Enchanting, Moving and Uplifting

There are sounds and samples that have stuck with me since I first heard this album in '91. It belonged to a buddy of mine in the army and after the 1st Gulf War I never heard it again except in my head. I looked for it many times over the years. I listend to it just now for the first time in 15 years and I still know every word, every beat and relish in every profound little sample. Now my wife of 12 years will get to hear the songs that I have quietly sung to myself for these many years. You must get the entire album. If your the person that buys just one song, your likely making poor decisions with the rest of your life as well.

I love it

Little known, this australian group put out i believe 4 albums, but this one is the best. Great relaxing sounds...great album if you are a fan of deep forest or cocteau twins.
