This album is unrelentingly cheerful. Which makes me go *finally* because Wolf has always been a master at the anthemic and uplifting. Even when the lyrics themselves aren't the most cheerful there's something soaring about his arrangements that make me happy. If I had one complaint about Wolf, then it's his tendency to pack anything and everything into an album. The Magic Position and The Bachelor both suffered for this. Sure, they had some cracking songs, and Overture from The Magic Position remains a favourite of mine, but there were also, in my opinion, some monumentally guff songs included.

There's no denying that he's musically and lyrically very clever but over the past two albums I've felt that he's needed to strip it back and tone it down a bit. And he has, wonderfully. Up to this point, my favourite album has been Wind in the Wires, a fabulous mix of traditional folk and the experimental stuff that I come to associate with Wolf. That album is by no means perfect either but I love it none the less.

Lupercalia is a different beast entirely when compared to his other releases.

There is only one word for this, and that is joy. The artist is obviously very happy at the moment and his joy explodes from the opening of the first track 'The City' and barely lets up until the close of the album. This is Patrick's most straight forward album but certainly not dumbed down. The City and House should almost certainly become modern classics.

Bought this for my partner, he loves it. Have to say I'd not heard of this artist but having listened to the cd a number of times I really like it.

Patrick Wolf is in LOVE and he wants the whole wide wonky world to know!
We should be happy for him. 'Lupercalia' finds him sounding far cheerier than
he has ever seemed before. The album is overflowing with warm positivity
and vibrant, tip-top, merry-go-round enthusiasm. Love can do that to you!

No longer 'The Batchelor' of 2009, these eleven wonderful songs prove what
we had really known all along. Mr Wolf is one of the country's very finest
songwriters. Listen to the glorious 'House' if any further proof were needed.
The melody, the arrangement, the harmonies, the words and that stunningly
rich baritone voice coalesce together into one juicily transcendent whole!
(By now it is probable that you will have noticed that I like this album!)

The romance continues unabated on 'Bermondsey Street'; a proudly defiant
anthem; a forceful challenge to blind prejudice and hatred. Bravo Mr Wolf!

The energy and the quality don't let up for a moment. The eighties sonic
elements and folksy threads which have always defined the best of his work
are still here but more subtely and gently integrated into a coherent entity.
Coming in at a little under three minutes 'The Future' is yet another powerful
manifestation of a creative imagination firing on all six cylinders.
Play it loud and you will feel the floor tilt under your feet!

Crikey! It's hard to pick a favorite amongst such fine fare but if I had to
reach for one then it would have to be 'Together'. It's a big, big song, full
of passion, sung from the heart with both spirit and that wonderfully controlled
vibrato fully engaged. Mr Wolf is as fine a producer as he is a performer.

We purchased this album as a direct result of watching the Jo Wiley sessions on BB2, which featured Patrick Wolf, who we had never heard of before. His music is just pure genius! A mixture of classical and pop - every song has great lyrics and a really catchy melody. His music has brought our family many happy hours of dancing and singing around the house, in the car - and even in our daughters classroom! Can't wait for him to play live again in London - we'll be there for sure!!

I have just come back from watching an acoustic Patrick Wolf Concert in Bristol and must write a review!!

The performance tonight was sublime, to the point he was forced back out after finishing as the crowd gave him an encore to remember!

As expected, the music was fantastic, but what I was most impressed with was the way he entertained us. It turns out patrick isn't only a fabulous musician, he's also a great entertainer too!

The most captivating thing about Patrick is his originality. Everything from what he wears to what he sings is entirely his own creation.

Patrick is incredibly (and almost annoyingly!) talented with most instruments (yesterday he played the guitar, piano, violin, and harp) but what makes him stand out most is his VOICE.

Patrick sings from the heart with a deep and powerful voice, and his lyrics reach out to most if not all audiences.

His band are great too, especially the violinist, with whom he makes an incredible duo!

I strongly recommend this album as it is more uplifting than his previous work, and most importantly - it has the song TIME OF MY LIFE which is my favourite. I beg that you listen to it and the lyrics!
