I discovered King creosote through a free compilation cd that i'd received with a magazine recently, I immediately wanted to buy the Diamond Mine cd. But then when I checked Amazon I realised there was a new version out soon, so I waited. Was it worth it? well yes, the original 7 songs are great, but with 6 more it makes it a more complete album, rather than an EP. The new songs are in a similar style and the album flows rather nicely. It is a lovely album with some beautiful songs on, I have played it last thing at night for the past few evenings, it is perfect to help you wind down. I had heard of king Creosote for years, I remember Mark Radcliffe mentioning him many years ago, but for some reason due to the slightly unusual name I thought it was a novelty act! I couldn't have been further from the truth. It is a album of simple, yet very pleasant folk type songs. But even if you don't like the stereotypical folk music give this a ago, it really gets under you skin (in a good way). If you want to try it out, check out Bats in the Attic, give it a couple of listens, if you like it you'll probably love this cd, a real gem.
