These kinds of albums can go two ways - augment perfectly what, in the main, are deeply-felt, personal songs; or be like Metallica's S&M.
Thankfully, this falls into the former category. Caramel sounds like it's lifted from the score of an early 70s romantic drama, while the swirls of 'Marz' offer a pastoral, English folk feel.
The swells and swoops of 'Fireflies' provide the first real chills-down-the-spine moments. None of the songs feel bullied, or over-burdened by the 60-piece orchestra, and the version of Glacier here is towering and imperious, and captures the album's true essence - great songs, perfectly performed.
