Having read a number of magazine and online reviews for this album I have come to the conclusion that reviewers (especially professional ones) have lost all concept of reference points in music. Perhaps I am too old, or they are all too young and never heard of Alan Parsons?
This is an excellent, musical album. It is not one for playing the odd tune from, but for late night listening. Seems to be an unusual way to spend time these days, listening to music. Too often it is just something that is on in the background, but this album dares you to listen. And by daring you will be rewarded, as this is clearly the work of someone who cares about his craft.
The other title for this review was to be 'Marmite'....in fact, Connan can have that as his next album title. But for now, enjoy Caramel..I am.
