  • This is Hitchcock's second album with The Egyptians. The band's performance proves that the touring they did prior to this recording helped shape their sound into a surprisingly cohesive force. ELEMENT OF LIGHT is a rich and powerful work that contains some strikingly evocative songs, such as the Lennon-like "Somewhere Apart," the nightscape poetics of "Raymond Chandler Evening," or the UK-meets-Muscle Shoals of "Ted, Woody And Junior."
  • The album's title comes from the song "Airscape," a gorgeously romantic five minutes of hypnotic words and music. The songcraft, mood and musicianship (The Egyptians were a band fully capable of taking the songwriter's varied compositions and playing them to new heights) make ELEMENT OF LIGHT crucial for Hitchcock fans, and an excellent starting point for those unfamiliar with this compelling artist.
