Matt Berry's music is a recent discovery for me. I only bought his third album, "Witchazel", a few weeks before this album was released because I read some very enthusiastic reviews for it and ended up very much enjoying its creative folk eccentricity. This led me to immediately pre-order "Kill The Wolf" and, now I've heard it half a dozen times, I love it even more than "Witchazel". I'm not sure if Matt's comedy/acting background does him many favours in the music business in that people may not initially take him seriously in this field, but knowing his persona does mean that you're not expecting something too straight-laced when you do take the plunge. However, what the uninitiated probably wouldn't expect is an album of such fantastic quality that cements his credentials as a terrific musician within the first couple of tracks alone. There are a lovely range of styles on offer here, with a folk theme underpinning the whole project. This is a gorgeous-sounding album with a huge amount of attention given to the instrumentation and production to make this as full and magical sounding as possible. It is more than apparent that English folk and rock acts of the sixties and seventies have influenced Matt strongly in his music, but this album is no throwback to a bygone era or exercise in nostalgia - it's way too good and original to be slotted into that pigeonhole.

The opening song, "Gather" is a very folky piece, a near-chant about gathering herbs, nuts and other wild flora. You could be forgiven for wondering what on earth you've bought at this point, but it's almost a red herring as the majority of the album is a mixture of genres, with "Devil Inside Me" immediately providing a rock/indie flavour.

I found Matt Berry's music through the usual channels of the Mighty Boosh to Snuff Box and the IT crowd to here! However his music is so much more. From being a curious interest to an obsession, Mattt berry's folkish rock is quite simply lovely! This album adds to Opium and WitchHazel without deviating too far from what you might expect. I would reccomend this album to everyone in the world, but they might not listen to it, so instead I reccomend it to you, because you will.

I listen to, and enjoy, a wide range of music, from heavy rock to jazz, blues, classical, indie etc. But in recent years the music that has excited me the most is British folk, especially the more experimental material such as that released by LAU. A couple of years ago this folky leaning led to Amazon recommending Matt Berry’s Witchazel album, which I subsequently bought and thoroughly enjoyed. I didn’t really recognise Berry’s name as a cast member of TV’s Boosh, but as soon as it was pointed out to me a few things clicked with me about the album, notably the subtle sense of subversive humour that ran through it. This helped me to enjoy it all the more, though I did tend to look at it as a bit of a novelty album (perhaps a little unfairly).

Fast forward a couple of years and the release of Berry’s 2013 opus (perhaps even magnum opus) ‘Kill the Wolf’. Much as I loved Witchazel, I have to say that for me this album totally blows it away.

This has the feel of a serious record from a man who loves music. It has a strong folk vein running through it, and from the opening chant of ‘Gather up’, a song that would not be out of place at a mayday celebration, you think you know what you are going to get. But this is subtly subverted by a hint of rocky electric guitar in the background, and launches the album off into lots of unexpected directions as Berry stays true to the folk road he has started down but mixes it up with a variety of arrangements, styles and instruments to produce something that has a sense of humour, both musically and lyrically, but never OTT enough to get it classed as a novelty record. The music is also serious, reflective and thoughtful.

I love this CD and couldn't stop playing it for weeks. Both folky and progressive, slightly reminiscent of Stackridge at their best and not a million miles away from Fleet Foxes. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. PS this is a serious album, not a comedy record in any shape or form.

I've lived with this album for a couple of weeks, and I really do think it's Matt Berrys' best yet. Whereas Opium seemed like a demo album (although excellent and well polished), and Witchazel held together well as an album, Kill The Wolf brings it all together. It has a kind of Wicker Man / Blood On Satans Claw 1970's Englishness to it, and seems to take itself more seriously than its predecessors.

Highlights for me are Fallen Angel, Medicine, October Sun and Untitled, but really I love the whole thing.

I also think the back cover is hilarious, now that's tongue in cheek!

Nicely done Sir.

If Spinal Tap and Mike Oldfield were to collaborate on a Wicker Man musical, you might get something like this. But this is much more than that. Imagine walking through an English field and as you go, the seasons change around you and then reverse. yeah.
