There is no-one quite like Steve Knightley. Who else could write a song like Poppy Day or Crooked Man '07? You just don't get songs with that depth and breadth from anyone else. Traditional, contravertial, powerful. Fantastic! I bought this CD after seeing Steve live recently and have listened to nothing else since. It's a tired old cliche but this album is an instant classic.
If you like Show of Hands, it's a must. If you want want songs that speak to the human condition, look no further. If you want to be lifted, inspired, outraged (in a good way) and challenged, he is your man.
