about together we’re stranger

Together We’re Stranger is the fifth studio album by no-man.

Released in 2 September 2003, the first four songs are linked to form a 28-minute suite of continuous music with recurring lyrical and musical themes. Atmospheric and ambitious, this aspect of the album in some way recalls the more Ambient elements of Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and Miles Davis and the later experiments of Mark Hollis/Talk Talk.

The remaining three songs prominently feature acoustic guitar and clarinet dominated arrangements and are amongst the band’s most stripped-down and intimate recordings.
