Thoughtful music for the right night.
on 1 December 2014
What a really wonderful album, full of personal, sentimental and roaming beautiful songs. Each one with a different story to tell. This is where I think this musician has really grown up and excels, the the folkish storytelling ability he can now achieve.
I did not in all honesty like Coral much, they were OK in my book, but not much more. This shows how good one of their main contributors is, now I cannot fathom out if I was missing something or he was overshadowed in a band environment. Coral fans will know better than me.
This music could almost be called depressing, but there is no way, the music may be slow, methodical and moody, but there is in it certain joys and hope. Yes it talks of life's experiences, which as we all know can be unfair at times, all this artist is doing is reflecting this, something people have done forever.
This collection of songs will add to anyone's listening material. Great for listening alone in thoughtful moods or as a couple after a great evening out.
