After his near fatal death experience and critically acclaimed comeback album Losing Sleep , he has now produced another life affirming album. Many of the songs have a classic Motown or Stax sensibility sounding as if they could have been produced in the 1960's, and are generally up-tempo. He has a new band of supporting musicians, and inevitably with his literally new lease of life some of the songs dwell on his recent personal circumstances. 31 Years reflects on his time and career as a working musician, while Dilemna ponders on what is the point of his life. However, it is not a melancholy or maudlin collection, his voice is on fine form, and it is a further addition to his fine series of previous albums. Carry On ,Carry On seems to be a take on how people in the street respond to his current physical state. I had the good fortune to see him in live performance for the first time a couple of years ago, and despite his more limited physical ability his ongoing enthusiasm for music and commitment to making the best of his new condition shone through really strongly. He deserves to be better known, applauded and loved by a wider audience, and this latest album strengthens his position as a cherished elder statesman of UK pop and soul, good one Edwyn,well done!
