Coming Home

Editorial Reviews

After multiple decades in the vanguard of electronic music, George Evelyn's Nightmares on Wax has little left to prove, so his volume in the Coming Home mix-album series is appropriately a subdued affair.

Marvin Gaye's instrumental of "After the Dance" is especially revealing as an influence.
