Mike Scott's finest album - period
on 22 May 2005
Mike Scott has compiled an extraordinary body of work for over 20 years largely as the main creative force and indeed voice of the Waterboys. "Bring 'em all in", is a masterful solo album mapping out in intimate and passionate detail an important phase in his musical, emotional and spiritual life. Whether he's falling in love with his soon to be wife in, I know she's in the building, or relating spiritual discovery in Building the City of Light, Scott's unique voice tells a mesmerising story. Long Way to the Light, is perhaps his most beautiful ever song taking a journey from Scotland to New York and back again - and by the way the tunes are so strong you don't even need to listen to the words to enjoy the record. Mike Scott is well regarded but still remains perhaps the most underrated British songwriter and performer of the last 20 years and this is his most underrated album - a joy.
