I had to check to see if this was the same guy I had been listening to just a few hours before a mate gave me `Free` to give a listen to.Dark and moody, soulful, emotional and very beautiful. This album has very little in common with Gavin`s previous albums, it sounds... dare I say it...more `mature`. Any way you view it this is a `do not miss` album, though I`m sure there are some out there who will call it a yawnfest, the same guys who thought The Foofighters acoustic DVD was boring. Ah.. but the world is cursed with some who cannot appreciate the true quality of fine and true musicianship as opposed to volume and bass drum beats per min. I love this album, I aint stopped playing it since I nicked it from me mate. Give it a blast, (especially if you have a mate you can nick it from), its worth fighting your mate for.
