Crying at Teatime is a really cool album. It's impossible to choose a favourite track - they are all great songs and there isn't a single bad one. Their musical style ranges from quite heavy to the more traditional numbers, but Alfie are always innovative and their instrumental brilliance is superb.

I started trying to describe the tracks but gave up - frankly you just have to hear this album yourself to discover how good it is.

If you are after songs to sing along to and some uplifting tunes, then Crying at Teatime has it all. Alfie deliver beautiful heartfelt harmonies - one of their trademarks since their early days and one which stands them above the less ambitious and rather predictable bands around at the moment.

Amazon reviewer Thom Allott is spot on - it is great stuff, Alfie have produced one of the best UK albums this year. It is a "must buy" album which matches their live performances (and if you haven't seen Alfie live then you really are missing out....)

Absolutely brilliant album - all 10 tracks are memorable for all the right reasons. Alfie have musically moved on yet again with "Crying at Teatime". Their last album "Do you imagine things" was also a favourite cd of mine and I expected this would've been hard to follow. Needn't have worried, with the tracks like "Where did our loving go?", "'til the end", "Applecart", "Look at you now", "Colours" you get the subtle, moody, Alfie - fantastic melodies.
"Wizzo" has the classic Alfie stamp - a catchy classy arrangement with cello, brass and a more mellow style that few bands would attempt, let alone bring off. "Kitsune" the last track starts as a haunting, simple tune but builds to a rich crescendo demonstrating all of Alfie's musical talents.
With the title track "Crying at teatime", "Your own religion" and "All too heavy now" you've got the fuller, gutsy tracks. A great selection - this is a real quality album, definitely 5 stars!
