Dipping their toes in various styles, Delicate AWOL's debut recording was a fine, if rather self-indulgent debut album. The much-delayed follow-up carries on in much the same manner, prompting questions such as: Is it jazz? Is it Hood with a female singer? Certainly it's intelligent - some may say pretentious - with arch, unwieldy titles and a tendency to "jam" for a little too long. Oddly it's the most weirdly-titled songs which are the best efforts. 'Time And Motion Studies Deep Underground' boasts a gentle, downbeat melody whilst 'Chance Thought At Flannel Port' is better still; wonderfully lilting in every way from Caroline Ross' pure vocals to the guitars and strings which accompany her so ably. Yet these are merely the highlights of a largely disappointing album; one of the key points being the transition from 'Oklahoma Bombs' sleepy jazz to the lacklustre noodling of the title track. Even the refreshingly crunchy riff that signals the end of 'She Looked All Dog-Up Lately' fails to redeem 'Heart Drops From The Great Space' to above the average.
