Another gentle composition from Philip Riley. Although not co-credited on the front of the album like the other two, Jayne Elleson again provides vocals. Fishing the Pearl of Heaven with its simple beat, vocals and saxaphone is a definite highlight, and at 11 minutes long is the longest track on the album. My favourite track is Secret Egypt, dominated by a (Spanish?) guitar and Egyptian vocals.

Overall a very soothing album.
