More songs from under the floorboards of Edinburgh-based group Dalhous, continuing group member Marc Dall's expressed interest in the work of psychiatrist R.D. Laing 'Will To Be Well' could be loosely seen as a tribute to Laing's extensive work into mental illness, with song titles that read like excerpts from Laing's work, the cryptic "To Be Universal You Must Be Specific" to the universal feeling of needing "Someone Secure". Across the album's fifteen tracks we are treated to an inward journey of late night electronics that would fit well next to the haunted ballrooms of The Caretaker, to emotive pieces like 'A Communion with These People' that recalls the rain-soaked Blade Runner blues of Vangelis. If you let it in, this album can act as powerful way to signal emotions and memories, long-since buried, which given the influence, is just what the artist intended.
