Format: Audio CD
Eliza Gilkyson has been making excellent albums for a long while now and a new one after a gap of three years is very welcome. This is another really good one.

The cover photo has a sort of cosy singalong-round-the-campfire look to it, but the material here isn't cosy at all. It's melodic and very beautiful in places, but Gilkyson's Nocturnes are songs about those things which keep us awake at night with worry. She tackles a variety of subjects with her customary intelligence and insight, and although there is a general political awareness here she doesn't launch any real political missiles like Man Of God, for example. Instead she sings of forgotten soldiers in Where No Monument Stands, of child abuse in Not My Home and of more personal worries about relationships and insecurity in songs like No Tomorrow. To give a flavour, the excellent An American Boy gets into the head of a desperately unhappy young man contemplating a rampage and contains the lines:
"My parents wonder if I'm doing all right;
They keep the gun case locked up tight
With the key hanging there in plain sight
While I make my plans.
It won't be long before I come undone..."
It's a remarkable, brave and also very musical song, and others on the album are just as good.

There are lighter moments; she gently mocks her own constant worrying in Eliza Jane and the final track is a redemptive country waltz celebrating the blessing of home and family. There's also a great version of her father's song Fast Freight.

Only just discovered Eliza and only have this album so far, but will be sure to be getting her others. The lyrics are of such a high standard and the music is great too. Could be described as folk/country, but it should not be pinned down really, a unique personal sound that grows on you with every listen. You might need two or three plays to start getting into it - not a bad thing, remember those albums you really liked on first listen and now never play?

This woman is an absolute gem. Not one bad album over her career. And once again she nails it. How can it be possible that she just keeps getting better. I was about to say that this is her best yet. But they are all brilliant. I have no favourite album, they are all good. Never get fed up listening to her.

Once again, a wonderful album. As I've indicated for Katie Herzig's "Walk Through Walls", Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer's "Drum Hat Buddha" a wonderful album that fits in with those of her complete body of work. Well up there with "Roses at The End of Time" and "Hard Times In Babylon" . Try it you'll not be disappointed.
