Released by Snapper Music in 2003, "Together We're Stranger" is No-Man's fifth studio album.

The first four songs are linked to form a 28-minute suite of continuous music with recurring lyrical and musical themes. Atmospheric and ambitious, this aspect of the album in some way recalls the more Ambient elements of Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and Miles Davis and the later experiments of Mark Hollis/Talk Talk.

The remaining three songs prominently feature acoustic guitar and clarinet dominated arrangements and are amongst the band's most stripped-down and intimate recordings.

Comparable in parts to the "exposed" approach of bands such as Red House Painters, Lambchop or Low, "Together We're Stranger" represents the band's sparsest and most directly emotional work to date.

The album was released in a limited edition white vinyl format on the Dutch label Tonefloat in November 2005 and as a re-mastered 5.1 surround sound CD/DVD-A (on Snapper Music) in February, 2007.
