Biography

Twenty one years since his first studio album, David Gray’s tenth and latest, Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “I think if you’re going forward with an open heart, good things will happen,” says David. “You have to sort of tear up the past and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature, beautiful and insightful 17 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Draw The Line is simply a wonderful and ephemeral album. It is full of memorable, creative and original music that has meaning and soul.

Everytime I hear Nemesis the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention. This song really touches my inner core because of its beauty, phrasing and meaning. Jackdaw rises to a crescendo as it soars towards its end and is just magical. Even the final song, Full Steam, leaves you wanting to hear more from Gray because of the way it elegantly captivates you.

David Gray is a masterful songwriter and the songs are all beautifully crafted.

I have listened to this continously since I bought it and it is like fine wine, it just gets better and better.

Disc two showcases his live performance and wannabes karoke singers on those awful so-called talent shows should listen to this because they will hear true, unadulterated talent that is so far removed from the over-produced pap that pollutes the airwaves.

David Gray is simply brilliant

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As It Gets 15 Sep 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacks that magic 24 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big David Gray fan since White Ladder. I found his early stuff hard to get into but am getting there gradually. All four studio albums (including Lost Songs) from White Ladder onwards were completely captivating and truly special, even though some songs took longer to appreciate than others. I so wanted this one to be just as special, but I have to say I'm struggling with it. I played it a few times when it was first released but sort of shelved it for awhile. I tried again yesterday, and really went into it with an open mind but after a few tracks I'm sorry to say I was just bored,but I saw it through to the end in the hopes that it would click with me. Well it didn't, although I truly hope that one day it will.
I'm sure David is trying his best to be creative and not simply try for another White Ladder, and thats understandable, but I must ask the question - if it had not been for the brilliance of Whhite Ladder and the following albums, would anyone really bother about this record? A brutal and harsh assessment I know, but true I think nonetheless. I think he misses the chemistry that Clune brought to his work, and although he has talent in spades I think its the old story of a gifted artist simply not being aware of where his talent truly lies. Of course I'll buy his future albums (all of them) with high hopes, and understand that even great artists have fallow periods yet come back with another masterpiece sooner or later, look at Neil Young, Brian Wilson etc. Yes I do put David Gray in that bracket, but as for this one, I think it'll remain mainly on the shelf. Oh, and what an awful cover too.........

4.0 out of 5 stars david gray draws the line 10 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
david grays newest album is more raw than usual, although keen fans already will app the singers ability to create emotion with his great lyrics and elavating voice, it does lack the radio friendly characteristics of songs on albums previous ...... But as i say gray fans will again love it , no one can ever say he doesnt give his heart and soul. Which in true is all we ask!

5.0 out of 5 stars its growing 14 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like a previous reviewer I fail to see the wisdom of anyone who can base a review on a collaboration, ignore the song by all means but to slate 11 songs because there of one with annie lennox isnt harsh its daft.
Anyway, Ive been listening today and, like other DG albums I know this is going to grow, Sure first listen there is a 50% hit rate. I'm on second listen now and we are up to 85-90%.
Jackdaw is my favourite so far - I cant recall a song where the singer can say the title and actually bring to mind the word he is saying - the ultimate metaphor.
Sure this isnt white ladder but it isnt the year 2000. this album shows the intelligence behind the songs and the depth of music that suit today.
I once read a review of the music book of david gray songs and the reviewer was stunned to see the depth and clever arrangements of every song.
I will continue to listen and to buy, and ignore one star reviews who are either jealous musicians or just helpless.
DG - keep it up, we'll keep full steam ahead listening.

Just paid the money and downloaded the album as MP3s.
There was a slight snag with a bit of code that has to be installed first but after that, downloads have been fine. Read more
