I am a nurse and work nights. When my radio alarm clock woke me today at 14.30 'Trouble' was what I heard. By 16.00 I was playing my own CD. I went out tonight for a meal but I could hardly get home quick enough (so sad, I know). It is now 01.30 and I'm still playing this fabulous CD.

There is some of the most heart achingly beautiful music here. Especially Ray LaMontagne's honey toned voice and his sensitive and intelligent lyrics, and I know it will be a favourite of mine for a very long time.

It starts with 'Trouble' and I braced myself for disappointment as I couldn't imagine it getting much better, but it does, there's not a single track I don't like. Other reviews have drawn comparisons with Van Morrison, Bob Dylan etc and it's all true, but please don't think it is dated.

I feel as if I have waited for quite a few years for a gem like this to come along and I can't wait for his next.

Have been a fan of ray's for a long time-was lucky enough to see him in a tiny venue a few years ago, where he basically played this album-just him, his guitar and a double bass player.

This album is the nuts-Trouble and it's chorus reminds me of Otis Redding's "I've been loving you too long" with his swooping vocal stle in the chorus. Ray's voice can go gospel with amazing strength and clarity, but can also go hushed and mournful too. To give you a guide, I definitely come in on the gospel/tougher side of things (huge fan of James Brown, Otis, the Black Keys blah blah). Overall,the slower, softer side of the album does win out, but the tunes, for me at least, are so beautiful (by and large) that it really doesn't matter. Give it a go, and if you can, go and see him in concert. His new album, and his newer gigs are, unfortunately, veering to the softer, more morose side of things, but he still possesses one of the greatest live voices you will ever hear.

It's a risky business, trusting TV advertising. You could end up buying any number of useless items. Nowhere is this more true than in the world of music, where it is safe to assume that 97% of albums advertised on TV are pure, unadulterated rubbish. Countless R&B compilations, unstoppable series of "Essential" Trance collections. When oh when does it end?

It ends now. If you're looking at this, it's probably because you've seen an advert for Ray Lamontagne's "Trouble" and realised that perhaps it's not the next in a long series of boil in the bag hi-fidelity sacrilege. Perhaps it's good.

It's hard to tell from the advert, because you only hear a snippet of a chorus, but "Trouble", both song and album, could be the slow-burning hit of the year. It's a record with such appealling folk brilliance that it would be hard to imagine anybody but the most hard-hearted of cultural buffoons not enjoying it. Indeed, I have rarely been so excited by every single track on an album that I listen to the whole thing again as soon as it comes to an end.

Lamontagne's voice is a glorious thing - rough edged, raw and flagrantly, excessively powerful. Does he use a microphone? Perhaps he sings from the next room to avoid damaging the audio equipment in the studio? But alongside such power is a delicacy, and wonderfully poetic touch that brings pleasing contrast to his songs.

And what excellent songs. Each track stands out, a neat and perfect study of love, confusion, and more often than not the affirmation that life in all it's craziness is a wonderful thing. You'll find yourself smiling, singing along before you even know that you remember the words.

Don't take my word for it though - trust the advertisers this once and buy it for yourself. You'll be glad that you did.

It is very unusual to find music like this with such captivating and emotional suspense. I can't stop listening to it. 'Trouble' and 'Hold you in my arms' are my favourites. Do not hesitate to buy this album you won't regret it.

It is simply pointless to attempt to compare Ray with any other artist - he is in a league of his own. I've now seen him play live twice - and both turned into one of the most powerful and amazing nights of my life. A shy, breakable figure with a mournful face that might have faded into insignificant, if it were not for his staggeringly powerful voice, that hardly seems to stem from the same mouth that whispers his painfully shy greeting. He sings from the gut - sharing his innermost thoughts and hopes.

There is not one skippable song on this album - few can failed to be moved by 'Hannah' ('I would walk one mile on just broken glass to fall down at your feet'), stirred by 'How Come', or able to identify with 'Jolene' ('I still don't know what love is'). Stand out track for me is the spine-tingling 'Burn' ('Try to ignore, all this blood on the floor, it's just this heart on my sleeve that's bleeding').

Utterly significant in today's world but with the class and beauty of the oldies. Ray's songs sound like they should be classics - whilst listening to him, it's easy to imagine that you have been raised listening to his edgy guitar chords and rousing strings.

There is not one flaw on this album, it is simply absolute perfection.
