RTW From Here launched the band on the Soleilmoon label and began a very lucrative "American" era, whereas the entirety of their career up to this point was predominantly European. The tour for this album was the first time I saw the Dots live, in Chicago. I will almost always equate these songs with that experience. A double vinyl release of this one with the Remember Me This Way tracks on side 4 would fulfill a longstanding dream. Favorite track: Citadel.

about

No album caused as much debate within The Dots as this one in 1995.It was all about the order of the tracks...quite simply no permutation seemed to work. Ultimately Phil (The Silverman) took the bull by the horns and asked for the independent opinion of long-term LPD friend Christoph Heemann.
The verdict was to leave certain songs off ("Beautiful Machine", "Anastasia", "Day Zero").
The resulting storm could be heard in the South of Belgium and a compromise was the "Remember me this Way" EP - a release which also settled disputes over the mix of the title track.
Even today, there can be debate about this album in Dots' circles but the author of this piece admits that "From here" stands as a personal favourite.
Elke made the fascinating artwork.
