muschiosauro Having mastered the Crimsonian and Canterburian ways, in this album Carpet leave the past behind and set out to cuddle, carve and explore their very own sound, oscillating like a pendulum between lush, fluid, voluptuous rock and aerial, jazzy bends, but with no sign of self-indulgence. The result is a great prog record, intelligent and entrancing at the same time. Favorite track: Shouting Florence.

StrangeFlow This is a masterpiece of an album, everything fits right in its place!
The sounds of all the instruments remind me of a well constructed painting and carpet take you on a journey from the first till the last second! Highly recommended Favorite track: Best of Hard Times.

Michael Mueller Such a languid, sensuous album. As much jazz as it is rock, and much a lounge-listening experience as it is either of those.

I reckon David Bowie would like this album. And there's something in that voice that reminds me of...

Temper sets the mood; both unassuming and grandiose is equal measure. A stately, compelling opener, and throughout, an array of mood and modes stimulate the senses, without ever overwhelming them.

A perfect, sophisticated pop album for all occasions. Favorite track: Temper.
