Peter Hammill seems to alternate between releasing unpredictable work the rock opera The Fall of the House of Usher, the electronic, experimental Loops & Reels, etc. and his trademark style straight-ahead arrangements for voice and one other instrument, usually guitar. And Close as This would fall into the former category, since it's comprised exclusively of pure arrangements in this case, voice and keyboard. And Close as This. Peter Hammill. Released 1986.
