I think it's really beautiful.
Nice direction, does stray a little too Zero 7/MOR at times, but it's still a fantastic record.
Little Bird/Some People/A & E/Monster Love are all quite special.
I saw them a few years back and Utopia live is amazing.
It's a shame Madonna has cashed in on her image.
to be honest, i hoped for more. it does stray into MOR territory at times like pichaelmarker says, but on the other hand A&E and one or two of the others are fantastic. i dont think its really that strong as a whole, and definately not in comparison to FM and BC. having said that, it makes a lot of sense as a morning-after headache soothing record.
Grow into it.....go and dance with a nice floaty white frock on and stamp on crisp leaves...and imagine them as leafy men that carry you gently into the night
