Good ULTC review from All Music Guide Print E-mail
Friday, 07 April 2006
A nice review with a strangely downbeat conclusion, IMHO.
ULTC review/All Music Guide
All Music Guide

The Church, like their namesake, are capable of both beautiful and 
terrifying things. Uninvited, Like the Clouds, their seemingly hundredth 
album since 1980, has everything an adoring fan could want, and all the 
ammunition a detractor could carry. 
Steve Kilbey, Marty Willson-Piper, Peter Koppes, and newest member Tim Powles have constructed a bloated, beautiful, 
unsettling storm of a record that manages to celebrate improvisation and 
songcraft without any favoritism, resulting in their most cohesive record 
since 1992's underrated Priest = Aura. Epic dreamscapes like "Block" and 
"Day 5" are as timeless as they are sonically progressive, but what rings 
truest about them is their affection for melody. 
Kilbey's laconic drawl has always been more of an instrument than a literary weapon, but his words --  
despite their rambling, fridge-magnet dreaminess -- have always been in the 
service of the song. Even when they stretch their collective legs into the 
unforgiving world of pop, specifically on the "Metropolis-esque" "Easy," 
they maintain a definitive yet world-weary level of poise that can only come 
from the oldest of souls. 
Uninvited, Like the Clouds -- like 2003's Forget Yourself -- won't win the group any new fans, but it may be the just a shiny 
enough apple to lure the brethren back into the garden.
