...are so good. I wasn't sure if this would work on its own but it stands up as an album in its own right, which is surprising. It's maybe because the arrangements are often so empty (leaving room for the vocal) that these sound like drastically different tracks when the vocal is removed. And I'll be amazed if these don't pop up in the background of documentaries or BBC trailers for wildlife programmes! Brian Eno did a similar thing with his last album - a separate disc of instrumentals but in a different order - but that didn't work so well for some reason. This is just lovely.

I agree, I love the instrumentals, fantastic arrangements with beautiful detail and emotion throughout. Two albums in one!

The instrumentals are amazing. I'm so happy they remesar them. I wish they also had released scratch my back ones. Dont you agree?

As a fan of instrumental music, I found this disc really interesting, and I'm really glad Peter bade the bold decision to include an instrumental version. It's interesting to listen to the album as an instrumental suite in it's own right.
