Secrets of the Beehive" is probably one of David Sylvian�s least experimental albums, so I don�t listen to the album to be challenged or to experience progressive details, which is sometimes the case with his other releases. The production is warm and pleasant. A real treat to my ears and it suits the music perfectly.
