"Gentle enchantment. The loveliest melodies you've ever heard." UNCUT
"Timeless, adult pop; Miracle Mile's obscurity remains unfathomable." The Sunday Times
"Blessed with a gorgeous voice, Trevor Jones must rank as one of this nation's most criminally overlooked songwriters." Mojo
"Quite irresistible; a first class album; smart, original music, ideally played and beautifully recorded." Maverick
At the time Jones and Cliffe were asked about the lyrical content of ‘Alaska':
TJ: "These are hardly original ideas. The grass is always greener. The human condition is invariably in a state of disappointment. Is ‘different' better? When habit and convention demoralizes and casts us adrift, how do we reset our course? A lot of these songs focus on the tricks that we use, the games that we play, and the skills we develop, to stop ourselves from becoming unglued."
MC: "The recording of ‘Alaska' was a difficult time for us both. I wouldn't say that it made for a darker album, but there was an emotional edge that gave it a certain grain."
Produced and Arranged by Marcus Cliffe and Trevor Jones
