'Photoplay is quite possibly their most rewarding work to date. Unlike its predecessor, it consists of independent songs rather than following a concept, and is put together with a strictly defined songwriting attitude.
Guitarist and vocalist Gary Chandler also took on the responsibility of mixing & producing Photoplay with impressive results. There are moments on the album where infinite numbers of threads are tied together combining dense atmospherics with gripping guitar arrangements.
Without doubt, the production on the album is their best yet. Unlike the more synth-driven earlier Jadis albums, Photoplay boasts lots of guitar-centred passages that are brilliantly mixed with rich melodies. "I Hear Your Voice" could be the definitive Photoplay song: it begins with floating Mellotron sounds that are married with a funky bass walk and rocking guitar melodies.'
