I first heard of Sam Carter on Radio 2 a few weeks ago, and had to buy the album. It's just beautiful, one of my favourite purchases this year. The lyrics are keenly observed and deeply moving, at times quite funny, but very much a modern poet, a man of our times. Coupled with his stunning acoustic guitar and subtle accompaniments, and a great singing voice, a really accomplished album which I feel sure I will soon know word for word, note for note. Looking forward to his next release already.
