"This Is The Sea" was a development on from The Big Music, which Mike Scott had created, if that's the right word, during the previous two albums, which in fact were mainly collections of demos and radio sessions. "This Is The Sea" was really the first really "produced" Waterboys album, and was made in a variety of studios in various locations in the UK (see the credits for details). Karl's contribution was very significant, both in the area of songwriting and arrangement and in a general influence on the whole session. You can here this influence especially on "The Whole Of The Moon".
