This Is the Sea Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Expanding the epic, multi-layered sound of A Pagan Place, This Is the Sea is a more ambitious yet more successful record, since it finds Mike Scott at his melodic peak. Consequently, the album has enough strong, accessible moments to make his indulgences forgivable.
