I bought this album on the back of reviews which I had read in the papers and various magazines. After only 1 day of listening I am amazed! My musical knowledge is not broad enough to speak of his influences, but I loved this album completely. It is very easy to just listen to without doing anything else, good background music and good for working to. The way in which the tracks flow is sublime, and to here this work on a debut is fantastic, I just hope that he has more to come.
