Review

"A beautiful album with echoes of Nick Drake" -- The Sunday Times

"A compelling debut record" -- **** Q magazine

"Alexander's debut album 'Morning Brings a Flood' is the most beautiful album I have heard in years. Period" -- New York Post

"An object lesson in how to wring out every last drop of emotion" -- *** UNCUT

"Songwriting of a rare quality"
-- Glasswerk

`Alexander Wolfe is a singer-songwriter from South London armed with an awesome voice and an artillery of engaging songs bound to win more than a few fans. His album, 'Morning Brings A Flood... is testament to his talent and determination [...] The refreshing result is frankly, superb - the audio equivalent of a one-fingered salute to the generic indie music that's currently insulting the airwaves. Prepare to be wooed by a multi-tasking powerhouse of a man.' -- The Playground - 5 Star feature on `Morning Brings A Flood'

`Rather beau strummy sad pop what pongs of Nick Drake, `Till Your Ship Comes In' in particular is marked out by some accomplished, sweeping orchestrational prettiness. And though young Alexander could never be accused of taking a neon chainsaw to those pesky genre barricades, it is worth remembering that not everything in music has to. Keep going readers, the bit about spanking is not far off, now.' -- Drowned In Sound - Singles Of The Week

`There's something reaffirming about hearing a real, true DIY record, conceived in lofts and bedrooms, which reminds you that there is some hope for the music business after all. If Wolfe can continue to develop and realise the immense amount of potential here, he could well become a very successful artist. Let's hope so.'

-- Subba Cultcha - Album Review

`With songs full of sadness, regret and longing, this newbie sounds like a husky, bluesy Chris Martin.' -- The Guardian - New Band Of The Day

I heard the track 'a song for the dead' from the bbc series 'whites' and could not get it out of my head, so i bought the album and have not looked back. Powerfull and touching songs.

Wonderful moody and atmospheric album made by a great musician with an interesting backstory, under appreciated by radio which is typical for the UK

It would appear that `folk' music has gone through something of a `quirky' phase of late. If you want further proof then check out this debut recording by Alexander Wolfe. Something of an enigma, Wolfe's story could act as the backdrop to a whole TV series...and who knows, maybe one-day it will be utilising his own stop-frame animation. In laying his innermost thoughts bare, our protagonist really opens his soul and in so doing makes the listener feel as if they are privy to the most intimate knowledge of this fascinating character. Considering Wolfe himself plays a majority of the instruments on the recording his, at times tortured vocals makes it all the more remarkable he finished the album at all. Cathartic meanderings may not be the choice of many, as they seem too mournful but in the imaginatively constructed songs featured here I feel that we may have stumbled across a South-East London cousin of the late great Alan Hull as there are even splashes of colour provided by harmonica...rather like early Lindisfarne. Even more unusual is the track "Teabags In Ashtrays" where he employs circus style analogy with the addition of some well-placed horn and string section interjections and I'd suggest that if you've got a few minutes you check out his You Tube video ([...]). Hopefully, like me, you too will be captivated by what I hope will be the first of many soundtracks from this broad-minded artist. By the way Mr Wolfe - if you read this review, I'm sure your grandfather would have been proud of your decision to sell the Rembrandt Lithograph print...but that's another story. Cracking stuff!

Sounds just like a UK version of Jeff Buckley 1 Nov 2010
By L. Hand - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
That's a good thing. Alexander Wolfe's voice is incredibly similar in quality, tone, and style to that of Jeff Buckley on some of his live stuff. He doesn't twist it around all raw and passionate like Jeff, but the similarities are striking. The music is not groundbreaking, but it's impressive, especially for (what I think is) a freshman album.

It's clear he can list his inspirations as Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Neil Young, and occasionally Coner Oberst (usually I find Bright Eyes to be syrupy and tiresome, but the dude can sing and write incredible lyrics).

Prague Song opens the album, and it's a solid lead. The track isn't super heavy or light, but it sets a good tone and gets your attention. I REALLY love Song for the Dead, with its bizarre, rhythmic, almost gypsy punk sound. I'd like him to do more songs like that one, but he doesn't disappoint with the rest of the album. Lazy Bones calls to mind Neil Young, with its slight country twang. Teabags in Ashtrays is a waltz, very simple, something you can see him singing to himself in bed the morning after an emotional evening.

All together, I like this album, and have been listening to it pretty frequently. Some tracks slip past me without much notice, but the standouts show lots of promise. I'm sure once he figures out what he really wants to do, he'll develop quite a little following.
I bought it for one song. 12 Aug 2013

I bought it for one song and listened to the whole album. I enjoyed it but wasn't blown away. Songs for the Dead is the theme song for the BBC show Whites. I love Lazybones as well.
