5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful Songs, 9 April 2012

The lyrics and the music are harder, grittier, even down right dirty in Lady of the Bines, but also melancholic and sweet (no bad thing). Whereas the first album was mostly nowt to do with Nick Drake, there is a definite and respectful nod to the wasted young man in the hommage that is Tanworth in Arden, where the lyrics are a blessing and the strings are a soothing balm to the worried soul that ever waits the falling… Read more
