Although Next is officially the group's second release, tracks 1 and 3 (Garl's and Pele) are infact the first studio recordings the Necks ever made. In contrast to the single track form of Sex (their first album), Next contains 6 tracks - some of which see the band augmented by various guests namely; Dave Brewer on guitar; Michel Rose on pedal steel; Mike Bukovsky on trumpet; and Timothy Hopkins on saxophone.
The album's tracks are varied in style with elegant minimalism sitting alongside Eno-esque programming and sombre orchestration.
"Sublime. Six pieces, all of them beautifully played and perfectly controlled"
