Beth Gibbons knows how I'm going to die and will only tell me in riddles

I don't usually go for the electronic stuff, but this album is amazing, never heard anything like it back in 1994. One of the best debut albums.

It's A Fire is favourite track from this album. Shame it's not listed here, but I can't listen to the album without that one included.

Beth Gibbons is the one of the best vocalists of all time-great emotionally compelling albums must listen and digest fully before you die.

For me every track is hauntingly spellbinding. The single Glory Box was my introduction to the band - but for me there are no weak tracks here, so definitely a favourite. [side note: on my cd just 10 tracks "It's A Fire" missing.]
