RTW For me, this album is the last record of the greatest Dots era. It mostly repeats earlier strengths in terms of songs but the production is perhaps their all-time best, as everything is coated with a layer of fresh, thick sound. The pure pop of "When Lenny Meets Lorca" and "When I'm With You" were truly surprising at the time. The rest of the album falls back on the twin strengths of folk and prog to great effect, such as in "Lent," "Pain Bubbles," or "Godless." Favorite track: Pain Bubbles / Blue.

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS- A Perfect Mystery REDUX (2012 Remaster)

The year 2000

End of the second millennium and end of an era for The Dots. Ryan left after this album to focus on his excellent Twilight Circus Project while Frank Verschuuren departed for a career in the New World .
The final gasp of the Dots' "big" line-up lacks consistency .Some fine tracks that stand the test of time, but some regrets about not capturing the enormity of "Pain Bubbles " in the studio environment.Likewise "Lent" often sounded better live....but
perhaps that's inevitable. The extended LPDs line-up somehow delivered their best work on stage at this time.
Worth a listen is Premonition 25- in my humble opinion the best of this long running saga of dark epics.EK
