I like this album - a lot actually.
Full marks to Peter Purnell at Angel Air records for having the conviction to back The Storys and their solo projects.
This album, like The Storys and Rob Thompson's solo album is thoroughly laid back and individualistic. Whilst Andy has made his mark with the recordings, Thompson's guitar work is unmistakeable, giving the whole album a lovely, easy feel.
When you listen to this, think of Tom Petty at his most easy-going ('Free Fallin' for instance). It is charming and very relaxing.
My only criticism (if it can be called that) is the cover. It is a simplistic idea which works on a level, but the cover can often be a selling point for an album, particularly for an artist who is not a household name. I feel it is a wasted opportunity and does not do the music true justice.
That said it is a worthy release and a lovely effort by Andy.
