5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, 28 Jun 2009

Traditional folk with an off-kilter feel. Fabulous music, and it must be said that the lyrics are intriguing and in some cases vocabulary-expanding - he's certainly thoughtful in all aspects of his composition.

If you like Bonnie Prince Billy, Rachel Unthank and/or Richard Thompson I suspect you should probably buy this CD - it's wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Nothing Else Around, 1 Aug 2011
This review is from: Spoils (MP3 Download)
I like Alasdair Roberts because he doesn't sound like anybody else, because unlike so many other young folkies, there's no real analogue for his music in the history of the folk revival. You couldn't really mistake his songs for traditional ones (at least not if you're paying attention) but he somehow captures some essential spirit of the tradition, in ways that so many strive for and fail to achieve. Paradoxically, it's this that makes him a genuine original.

The first listen might not get you there but play the thing again. Some of the best lyrics I've heard since Dylan sang Gates of Eden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen., 28 May 2009

I have only bought this cd very recently and I can honestly say that it is one of the most rewarding albums that I have heard in a long. long time.
It is very difficult to categorise the musical style as I feel that I would not be able to do it full justice. Let's just say that it is not just guitars and drums and it is certainly not modern pop music.
Well worth a listen.
Highly recommended purchase.
