Disintegration

From a review of "the finest albums in the world, ever"*...
A whole lot of this album's appeal is that it's comforting, practically womblike-- big, warm, slow, full of beauty and melody and even joy. The trick, I think, is how well it serves as a soundtrack to that feeling that everything around you is meaningful, whether it's beautiful or horrible or sublime...

I think it remains my favourite album of all time...

* Who said that?

Yeaes.... but DK, you like James!
It makes me doubt your otherwise impeccable judgement.

The album certainly produced one of Smiffy's best songs - always had a soft spot for this extended mix
