Tim's solo album officially remastered

booklet features new essay and interview

There was a gap of a decade between 1991's 'Magick' and the release of this album. The Crystal Machine may have been an adventure long consigned to musical legend but echoes of it's subtleties and sensibilities were conjured up largely through modern, more reliable digital technology. Several tracks distinctly bring to mind 'Blake's New Jerusalem'.

Housed in a standard jewel-case with an informative 16 page illustrated booklet.
