I bought this cd as I had discovered Marc's excellent voice through Mandalaband and Riversea (check these out if you haven't already). The cd is immediately familiar and is the sort of music I could listen to no matter how I am feeling. Marc tours extensively in the north of England so for a southern resident like me it is an ambition to see him perform some of these songs live one day.
Having written this review has inspired me to listen to the cd again! I recommend you do too!

This is quite simply magnificent. I won't go into detail about the situation involved as other reviews have dealt with this admirably. I will concentrate on the fact that this is brilliant writing and beautiful acting at it's best. In each episode there are moments of humour, often laugh out loud but also genuine moments of sensitivity and empathy. I have often found my self laughing and crying within seconds of each other. For a programme to be funny, respectful, sensitive, thought provoking, challenging and emotive as this is rare. The characters are great and the acting sublime. The care home leader Hannah is magnificent and Ricky Gervais is wonderful in the title role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skin Tight!, 7 July 2012
This is a real masterpiece! Panic Room just keep getting better and now are poised to turn heads in more rock circles than previously. This is a superb cd full of well crafted songs, beautifully played and magnificently sung. Many of the songs build to a climax that isn't necessarily loud but suits the mood and purpose expertly.
I pre-ordered this cd - it arrived a week ago and I have been unable to remove it from whichever cd player I am nearest to! At first I was bowled over by 'Chameleon' and 'Chances' then after a few more listens 'Song for tomorrow' began to work it's magic, now I love it all.
Panic Room are the sort of band we need, so please buy the cd and listen to it… Read more
