The album picked up positive reviews from all corners, including a spot in renowned magazine The Wire, culminating in 'Parin Onia' being spun by none other than The Future Sound of London during a slot on BBC Six Music's SixMix show. Three years later, the follow-up, Vacuum Road Songs, was unleashed on fledgling Leeds label Jerky Oats. Replacing the amorphous soundscapes of its predecessor with breakbeats, glitches and insistent techno rhythms, Vacuum Road Songs was the city to Purlieu's fields, a journey following the listener from the borderline of the city to its huge, dominating centre, passing all points of human life on the way. Further radio play came with the record, and all reviews suggested the album was a successful follow-up to the debut. 2010 saw Second Thought re-emerge from a self-imposed 'musical exile', with several releases that formed a run bracketed 'the experimental series', each taking a new approach to composition and/or production, and released as either free downloads or small DIY releases. 2011 marked a return to proper releases from Second Thought, beginning the year with the third album, Safernoc, released by The Future Sound of London on their digital imprint, which combined the sounds of Purlieu and Vacuum Road Songs with modern classical and avant-garde music. In the spring of 2011 it was announced that two final albums would be released, before the Second Thought moniker was to be retired and Ross would continue recording under his own name.
The first of these, Since Every Hour Is Too Late, arrived in June and boasted a largely piano/string based sound. The second, Leaf Pass, returned to the sound of Purlieu to bring the series of albums full circle. Second Thought can also be found online at http://www.secondthought.co.uk/ 2.
