Mark Nevin is a song writer with a terrific pedigree, probably best known for his work as primary composer and guitarist in Fairground Attraction and for his collaboration with Morrissey.

This album contains 10 beautifully crafted pop songs and like all good writers Mark Nevin is able to create the perfect marriage of catchy melodies and simple but affecting lyrics that tell stories we can all relate to. I particularly love his amusing homage to his hero, Ray Davies, in the witty 'I Know Where Ray Davies Lives'.

He is obviously a man who has attained a certain level of contentment in his personal life and a number of songs reflect this; 'Oh Mama', 'The Girl On The Motorbike', 'Stand Beside Me In The Sun' and he also casts a wistful eye on days gone by in 'A Ghost Of Summer Past' and 'This Little Church'.

Don't look for anything controversial on this album because you won't find it but what you do get is excellent songs, beautifully performed and produced by a quality song writer.

I must be the only person that bought this album on the back of a negative review. I read the above having seen Mark play last year in North London at a secret little show in Wood Green and I thought: the only person that can have written that must have a grudge. Or the album is rubbish... and guess what - it's not. But then, having heard the stories behind the songs at the show, it was never going to be anything other than money very well spent.

There's few songwriters around today that can put a track together so wonderfully to support a lyric like Mark can. Sure, Perfect 2 isn't on here, but err, well, he's done that and got the house. This is a writer who's never stopped getting better at telling stories; a wonderful arranger who arranges in the writing. His delivery - in a world of X Factor vocal gymnastic drivel - is that of the man who wrote the story... Dylanesque I'd say. The writing is as it always was with Mark's work - quitessentially English.

If you like a good story, and a band of superb musicians supporting the lyric (the keyboards are very Nicky Hopkins) then this is well worth the six quid. For what it's worth I heard a couple of new tracks at the show too - there's a killer of a record coming behind this one. In the meantime - The Girl on The Motorbike, I know Where Ray Davies Lives (you gotta see that live) and the Lennon-ish Oh Mama are standouts for me.

"Stand beside me in the sun", the new album by the well known Brit Award-winner Mark Nevin, is a gorgeous collection of beautiful sunny songs with soft catchy melodies with a fresh and ambitious instrumentation (for example different saxophons, a mandoline and - ukulele!). Some of my favourites are "The girl on the motorbike", "A ghost of summer past" with their poetic, sunny and floating melodies and warm mood and the brilliant "I know where Ray Davies lives", a very personal hommage to one of the greatest living musicians, full of love and a great sense of english humor. Great music to feel good!
