the new studio album by Scotland's Broken Records.

The follow-up to 2009's debut Until The Earth Begins To Part,
Let Me Come Home started out as a series of sketches and song fragments in frontman Jamie Sutherland's kitchen, later taking form in demo sessions at an old distillery grain store in the Scottish Highlands. Recorded and produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Delgados, Belle & Sebastian) at his COD Studio in Glasgow with artwork conceived by Vaughan Oliver at V23, Let Me Come Home will be released on CD, LP and digital formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent album 27 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Having listened to this album several times I am reassured that it is a consolidation of the exceptionally good work which began with their first album, "Until the earth begins to part" which has been a regular visitor to the CD players both in the car and the house.

This time there is a subtle change of emphasis to a slightly more "rock" rendition but it is none the worse for this. Jamie's vocals are perhaps slightly more under control but in a good way. Andy's drumming expertise continues to impress with his solid yet subtle consistency.

The band continue to display impressive progress- a pity this is not more widely appreciated- it can only be a matter of time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold In The Furrow 9 Nov 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There is a raw power and fiercly independent musical
intelligence at work in Broken Records' new album
'Let Me Come Home'. This is Jamie Sutherland et al's
second outing. 'Until The World Begins To Part' (2009)
was a strong debut and their new recording convinces me
still more of their worth. In some ways they are exploring
not disimilar territories to My New Novel, another of
Scotland's finest bands. Their album 'Deaths & Entrances'
was another highlight of 2009.

This is music which takes time to make its mark. There is
an elemental undertow running through the ten tracks in
the collection. Full of almost pagan pathos, these songs
are rooted in an ancient and noble folk tradition but sparkle
in this newly turned furrow like unexpected golden treasures.
Pure, uncomplicated and strangely affecting at an emotional
level, this is music which grips us in the moment and lingers
in our memory for long afterwards like half-remembered dreams.

Mr Sutherland has a fine voice. Unshowy and authentic.
Jump to 'The Motorcycle Boy Reigns' for a splendidly
moody example of what he and the band do best. The song
manages to be both a lullabye and an anthem; the keening
falsetto of the central vocal performance generates an almost
magical intensity. Dark but beautiful materials, well-managed!

'I Used To Dream' is a delightfully fragile miniature which
demonstrates accomplished ensemble playing. Piano, strings
and percussion combine in a stately dance which would not
have sounded out of place on the village green at a medieval
village festival. Mr Sutherland's solid middle-register conjures
the simple tune to life with warmth and restrained conviction.

I have to admit i do not like this album as much as the previous album but it is still excellent, the sheer energy and musical talent of these guys shines through every song.

Their music is great for getting people to dance or put it on a little lower and it makes perfect back ground music, they are always a band that makes people ask me "who's this, its good" . Its a shame people haven't had a chance to hear more of them. They are one of those rare bands with universal appeal (even my grandma that claims all my music is just noise likes them).

I will always remember seeing them at Leeds, they played on the Thursday night, when not many people are on and therefore not many people are milling around stages, and yet they pulled a crowd with there energy and even with the rain and the fact everyone was wearing wellies, they made people want to dance and not just that, they made people want to dance like a kid at a wedding, it was awesome, people just plain enjoyed them! It is easily one of my most cherished memories dancing with my friends to a band we had never heard of before in the pouring rain. They stole the show for me, heck they stole the festival in a year when Metallica played main stage.

As for the album itself it comes in a attractive simple case and plenty of tid bits inside :-)
