"Good to be reminded that Temple Bar in Dublin isn't only soundtracked by screaming hen parties and disco throb. Bevel's last three tracks were recorded without an audience at Temple Bar Gallery in July 2000 (that should read 2005), while the opening "Whittle" comes from an earlier public gig at Trinity College. Kelly is Ireland's Hugh Davies, shrewd guardian of the cabinet of curiosities, while Lacey provides percussion and electronic asides. It's often very soft, intimate, even introspective, but both men manage to sustain their discipline and sense of order even when the dynamics increase."
