Mr Gray has produced a not insignificant body
of work since his 1993 debut 'A Century Ends'.

I cannot say that I have ever been a fan of his music.
'White Ladder' won him legions of admirers and I could
not count myself among them.
He was good. He possessed a kind of everyman charm
and an approachable, uncluttered and unpretentious
compositional style which did not demand too much of
his listeners. Good....but not that good.

His last album, 2005's 'Life In Slow Motion' delivered
some of his best songs to date - I will admit to being
rather fond of 'The One I Love' and 'From Here You Can
Almost See The Sea', both perfectly decent tunes.

With 'Draw The Line', however, my attention has been caught
in quite a different way. This album is more than good.
It is very, very good indeed. A revelation in fact.

Suddenly it seems that Mr Gray has discovered a rich and
deep seam of golden creativity hidden from him until now.

The eleven songs in this collection are the product of
an untethered artist, recorded in his own studio and with
a stunning new bunch of musical compatriots breathing life
and energy into the project. Everyone gives of their best.

The album as a whole has a wonderfully coherent ambience.
Warm, dry and vividly alive. The voice is always well-forward
in the mix and he has never sung better

Now, here's a thing...stay with me here for a moment... a wayward
thought perhaps...but...I am reminded of some of Elton John's
finest music of the early seventies; the Elton John of
'Tumbleweed Connection' and 'Madman Across The Water'.
This reflection is nothing less than respectful in intent.

David Gray has left his acoustic sound behind and is relying on his voice, his majestic lyrics and music. David Gray had four CD's after 'White Ladder' and they were all good, but none of them ever reached the pinnacle of his first hit, 'White Ladder'. The eleven songs on this CD are not all elevated to a great level, but most of them hit the high marks.

Some say this CD is resonant of his earlier works, and there are not any great changes. With his true voice rising from the first tune 'Fugitive', this will be the break out song. 'Seeing a twinkling in your eye, gotta try'.
'Draw The Line' gives us a list of ills and warns us to move on - life is too short'. 'Nemesis' is a tune of soulfulness and longing. 'Stella the Artist' is one of those songs that you remember for its lyrics. 'Kathleen' with Jolie Holland was not as appeasing to me as others. 'Transformation' is a tune I like- it is the end and the beginning of something new. 'Full Steam' with Annie Lennox is a nice ending, but I couldn't quite put it together with the rest of the CD. Disc 2 gives us 8 songs from other CD's and is a nice addition. Can't quite figure out why those eight tunes were included, but will take them for what they are!

This CD has a rich, sweeping sound. 'Draw the Line' is not much different than David Gray's other CD's. If you are expecting a CD that inspires and rewards this is it. 'Draw the Line' is an album to savour . Enjoy!

I've been a David Gray fan for many years now and despite some ups and downs remain a fervent admirer of this artist.
Draw the line bursts alive with 'Fugitive' and right from that moment; I knew I was going to enjoy the album.
Although New Day at Midnight and LISM were good enough albums in themselves, I felt there was some essential element of D Gray missing from the albums. Is this unusual? Probably note, and if you think hard enough about other artists you like, I'm sure you will find there were times when you sort of 'fell out of love' with them.

In Davids case he was faced with the difficult task of living up to huge expectations after the success of White Ladder and importantly, the smaller retro success of previous albums, eg, Sell, Lost Songs, Century Ends etc. People discovering these albums encountered a talented, raw and above all passionate artist and musician. It was hard not to be affected by him. When I saw the DVD production/album of David at the 'Point' in Dublin, I saw an artist with enormous passion who was enjoying the people who were enjoying the concert. In other words he was not just performing to them. I occasionally watch the DVD just to see this magic happen.

After listening to New Day, in my minds eye, I could picture some marketing/label geeks telling David how to make his music, already very special to millions of fans, more marketable to others. So maybe somewhere along the line his music lost some of its soul, depth and the edginess that we love.
David, here, is in some ways an easy artist to pick on. Because of his depth of character and musical ability, evident in his lyrics and composition, this gives critics an easy platform from which to cast some shallow and unhelpful comments.
