Graham Coxon's latest album is a marked change from the punk pop charge of his last couple of records....The spinning top is dominated by strikingly beautiful and original instrumentation ...with some trade mark Coxon guitar noise employed at key moments for maximun impact...
The most pleasing aspect to the album is Coxon's approach to his vocals...On Happiness in Magazines the balance between pop and snarl was almost perfect..But on Love travels at illegal speeds the snarl was beginning to take over from the fragility which makes his voice so unique...Thankfully for the spinning top that balance has been fully restorded and the listeners empathy can fully return to these moving songs...
Next up Coxon has promised 21st century music.. I for one can't wait : hopefully the vocal approach taken on this enchanting record can be filtered into his next release......

This is quality music. Acoustic guitar for the most part but blending effortlessly into rock riffs from time to time.
Great vocals too. Listen to it. BUY IT!

I saw Graham's trio last night in Hertford. He only played tracks from this album and it is more of a mellow affair, but still with some kick to it. It may be a cliché these days, but the sound was evocative of Nick Drake in places; intricate acoustic guitar pick, double bass and effortless vocals. Great to see him break into an unexpected alto-sax (?) on one track. He declined requests for older music, like Freaking Out as he claimed he couldn't do it justice because "Mr. Gibson" was at home. I'm glad he resisted the urge, he's clearly proud of this and so he should be. Looking forward to the album.

A beautiful, folky, (gently psychedelic at times)
album of astounding virtuosity.
Man, the guy can play!
A sublime acoustic masterpiece,
And the sound of summer nights to come.
Ahh, bring 'em on!
Purchase & enjoy. :)

This album has some very good tracks, a lot of them dominated by Coxon's distinctive acoustic guitar playing. Coxon's love of Syd Barrett and great British acoustic guitarists have inspired him to produce an album that's full of gentle English psychedelia. It sounds better with each play.
