In a parallel universe Breathless would have been credited with recording some of the greatest love songs alternative music has to offer. 'Behind The Light' - their sixth album in eighteen years - contains at least two more contenders to add to their already impressive list with lead-off track 'After All These Years' and 'Stay Beside You'; both are yearning ballads of romantic longing wrapped up in the glorious, warm keyboard atmospherics that the group have specialised in since 1991's landmark 'Between Happiness And Heartache' album. Pleasingly Dominic Appleton's unique voice has lost not a jolt of resonance. Both 'Nobody Knows' and 'And So The Dream Goes On' meanwhile are faster and louder and are more similar to their last album, the expansive sounding 'Blue Moon'. In a somewhat risky move, the title track veers towards progressive rock with a 15 minutes suite in four parts although it is surpassed by the moving instrumental closer 'Fade' bringing the latest release to a somewhat premature end after only forty minutes. Neither as sonically ambitious as 'Blue Moon' nor as consistently heartbreaking as 'Between Happiness And Heartache' the group nevertheless still have their own definite sound.
