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 ...

CD IHT Records, EastWest, 8573-86953-2, 2000,

Amazon.co.uk

Released as a glass-raising toast to the longstanding loyalty of his Irish fan base (whose thirst for fresh David Gray material is truly quenchless), Lost Songs assembles material written during a label-hopping lapse either side of the Sell Sell Sell album and which was belatedly committed to tape in October of 1999. Far from being a tatty what-I-did-in-my-spare-time scrapbook of discards and B-side quality cast-offs, Lost Songs offers conclusive proof that even David Gray's folk-pop wastepaper basket is lined with silver. Effortlessly maintaining Gray's brand-image as a troubadour-with-a-troubled-outlook, via a homogeneous selection of achy and predominantly acoustic heart-on-sleeve urban spirituals, many of Lost Songs' choicest moments ("Flame Turns Blue", "As I'm Leaving", "Falling Down the Mountainside") could all be Dylanesque rungs from White Ladder. The only question remaining now is how much higher can he climb? --Kevin Maidment

I discovered 'Lost Songs' quite a while after 'White Ladder'. Having played the latter CD to absolute death, I wanted to move onto something else. I was initially quite wary, having convinced myself that nothing could beat the outstanding 'White Ladder' but I was fortunately proved wrong. I bought 'Lost Songs' to accompany me on a particularly long train journey, knowing that I would be forced to either listen to the CD or the inane chatter of my travelling companions. As it happens, I played the CD roughly 4 times over because it was simply so good.
Having said that I loved 'White Ladder' there were a few songs that didn't quite do it for me, namely 'My Oh My', 'Were Not Right' and the title track 'White Ladder'. I personally preferred the gentler side of the album. The absolutely astounding 'This Years Love', 'Babylon' and 'Sail Away'. If those were the songs you liked on 'White Ladder' you will not be disappointed.
'Lost Songs' starts with my joint favourite 'Flame turns Blue' and doesn't let up till (other favourite) 'Clean Pair of eyes'.
The songs are mellow and gentle and flowing, some more stirring (particularly 'Falling down the mountainside') but all in all, I would say there are no dud's, no songs to hastily skip. It has a more accoustic and raw feeling than any of his previous or future efforts, and so may not be to everyone's liking.
It's definitely a chilling album, one to put on after a hard day at work, or whilst lying in a warm bath - pure bliss!
My only complaint would be the two instrumental songs, such as shame to waste valuable CD space without hearing the delightful Mr Gray's voice.
Top marks, 10/10!

From the first minute that my ears had the privelage of hearing this truly talented artist, I was hooked.I thought White Ladder was good but this really does take the biscuit.Words can not describe the haunting beauty of some of these tracks.People never seem to take the time to actually listen to the lyrical content of a song, well if ever there was an album to encourage that,then here it is. A simply superb album.More of the same please Mr.Gray...........

More mellow than White Ladder,this is an album for an evening by the fire.You can hear James Taylor and Bob Dylan in Grays's haunting songs.His powerful mid - Atlantic accented singing is backed by 12 string guitar expertly picked in a Sixties folk style, bass and piano .David Gray is modern and fresh , a welcome change on the music scene.This is a fine album and one of my favourites.

probably like most david gray fans, i become a follower because of white ladder, then listening to him live at earls court a few years ago he inspired me to pick up a guitar, (still stuggling!), lost songs will strip away your barriers and have you in tears, listen to the lyrics from "flame turns blue" and "as im leaving" ,if you have ever loved, lost, and found within your life dont allow another day to pass without owning this album,and within a week you too will be typing something similar to me, 100% definatley, 100% respect to david gray!!!!!!

David Gray. The name reminds us of the man behind such classics as 'Babylon', 'Please forgive me' and in my opinion 'Late night radio' the latter being possibly the best of the bunch and is unjustly not a classic to everyone. 'Lost songs 1995-1998' is an insight into the early work of one of the defining songwriters of the past few years. Although not really a patch on 'White ladder' it has some interesting songs contained.
For me, 'A clean pair of eyes' and 'Twilight' are the real gems on the album but there are a few others that are still very good. The album lacks the touch of class of his later work but it is good enough to warrent the price tag and is really a must for any real David Gray fans. Probably better than a three out of five but not quite a four, it spent quite a while in my cd player.

With most other artists who show real promise, record companies try to cash in after early successes and release all the crap stuff, taking advantage of a growing fan base. After buying the brilliant White Ladder, before sampling the less notable album Sell Sell Sell, it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I bought Lost Songs. I needn't have worried. For me, Daid Gray has achieved the magic goal of creating an album which in total is greater than the sum of its' parts. It really is brilliant, so honest, in displaying his formidable talent. Forget the multiplayer or disc-changer, it loses a big chunk if you don't listen to the album in it's entirety. Take off your shoes, turn out the lights, turn on the stereo and take part in a real celebration of this guys talent. Lost Songs is a beautiful lullaby. David Gray for me is unashamedly a revelation in these days of contrived tunes and groups of toned bodies coming at you 24:7. His guitar cries, his piano softens, his music speaks. I think Gray has achieved something that he hasn't even set out to do. It is a real masterpiece I kid you not. (This album even outshines the outstanding Parachutes by Coldplay, and if you like that, you'll know exactly what I mean.) An album for kindred spirits. This album is one of the only honest things I've heard from anybody all year.
