I got this when it was available as a free download last year. Unfortunately it seems to have got deleted from my hard drive so I will be buying it now.

Why am I buying it?

Because it's quite brilliant, rather lovely, and one of the most capitivating albums I've listened to in recent years. Berry is a talented musician and songwriter, and while there seems to be a tongue-in-cheek quality to some of the lyrics (which channel progressive folk and psychdelic tropes of the 70s) the whole thing is played relatively (and commendably) straight.

I loved it, and am looking forward to owning it (again).

I had no idea what was coming when I ordered this. I had never really heard of Matt Berry before, and from the cover art and the title of the album and some of the tracks I was expecting a slice of modern Folk revival, probably in the same vein as Chris Wood. The album arrived and upon closer inspection the artwork reveals itself to not be what it seems, and the first clues that I was in for something different presented themselves. Then I put in the CD player, and I have to say I was captivated.

My Girlfriend, a lot more in tune with popular culture than I am, instantly said `Oh, that's Matt Berry. He was in the Mighty Boosh'. And all suddenly became clear. This is music from someone with an anarchic, surreal sense of humour. The humour is exceedingly restrained, the music is first and foremost. But knowing about it is crucial to `getting' the music.

The music is excellent. Clearly influenced by the likes of Caravan and the prog folk rock movement of the early seventies. Berry serves up many traditional themes and forms, those old fashioned wistful ballads and celebrations of the rural life, but with a side order of prog rock and a streak of slightly (but not totally) tongue in cheek humour. He's not taking the mick, just giving a nod and a wink to let us know that he can see the funny side. It's a great blend, and what we get is an album of excellent music that uplifts and puts a smile on the face. There is even a decent cameo from Paul McCartney.

An excellent album, one that I really enjoyed and will listen to regularly. 5 stars, and I look forward to more from Matt Berry in the future.

...in little brown paper bags and you'd just won a shopping spree at the delight store. Your shopping trolley all full of little brown bags. You've arrived home and spread said bags all over your bed and you jump backwards into them in slow motion in the way you've seen countless cheeky bank robbers do in many a lary british gangster movies.

Well this imaginarium you've conjured will only scantly describe the delightful experience of listening to Matt Berry's Witchazel for the first, second, third and fourth time.

This cd has beautiful instrumental moments all the way through. This is my main reason for enjoying it. How sweet, happy and perfect the sound is.
Also how mixed it is! Moving through different years of musical influence.
All with Matt Berry's great voice hovering through it all.

My first 5 star CD

Wow its finally here and its a beautiful, genius, gentle album. Soft soothing Acid sounds mixed with tender vocals and a whole range of instruments from the gentle to the blistering guitar solos of Andy Vickery, Dave Hamer & Jolyon Meredith. Beautiful Wind Intruments too. And the Distinguished mellow sounds of the voice of Matt Berry.

Bought this as a Matt Berry comedy fan, not too bothered about folk music usually but this is a touch of class, great music and some subtle and less than subtle humour - Accident at a harvest festival, The badgers wake and From the manger to the mortuary - titles speak for themselves. Highly recommend.

Having ordered "snuff box",this artful gem was suggested as a thing i might like...By crickey,they were quite right! from the moment of sniggering at the cover and the other wonderful artwork,i was hooked.No doubt there is some post-ironic or something mickey taking going on.I.Don't.Care.

This cd is tuneful,well produced and rather catchy to say the least.A "lost" late-sixties concept album,and perfect for all pheasant-fanciers everywhere...
