its overused sense but literally to mean that a single tone runs through the entire album.
There are no melodic highs and lows that you'd expect from an album contaning an
orchestra. It has low, rumbling, portentous string washes but they are there as musical
wallpaper. This album doesn't have the emotional intensity of Wide Angle nor the aural
excitement of Morning Sci-Fi. A shame. Still, roll on 2009!
