In which the long-lived, Canberra-formed band revert to type

The Church started out as Byrdsian revivalists, but a neo-goth rethink would eventually bring them to the brink of major US success circa 1988's Starfish. Now, after the pleasing detour that was 19999's cover versions album A Box of Birds, AENT finds them souding autumnal and cult-ish (note small 'c') as ever, frontman Steve Kilbey's cheerless lyrics honed as you might expect from a published poet, and Marty Willson-Piper's guitar still doused in echo and reverb.

Your correspondent warmed to the record in the wee small hours,shadows and vino complementing songs evoking Talk Talk circa The Colour of Spring (Night Friends) and Bono on a downer (Radiance). The impressionistic-sounding title track, though, is a more idiosyncratic reminder of the band's gloomy elan. Fans arewell served, but newcomers might tire waiting for the group's charms to percolate
