4.0 out of 5 stars WHISPERS TO BE HEARD, 14 July 2014
I play Mike Rosenberg's (Passenger) albums more than any other in the car, which is my main music venue. I love his clever but insightful and heartfelt lyrics, the excellent tunes and extremely sensitive musical arrangements.

'Flight of the Crows' is the album preceding 'Lights' and though not as strong (somewhat contrived lyrically) it has many comparisons with similar excellent musical arrangements.
