Album of the Year
on 16 July 2013
If there is a better album then 'El Pistolero' this year then I'd like to hear it. Mick Brown is a real talent - he plays good guitar, has a great voice and is a fine songwriter. The album flows beautifully and successfully tells the story of the gunslinger (El Pistolero) who finally meets his match. My only slight criticism is that most of the really great songs come in the second half of the album, so it is a bit of a slow starter on the first few listens. Highlights for me are 'Dead Garden', the magnificent 'Scream in Silence', 'Hangman', the equally magnificent 'There's a Man', the poignant 'Until The War Is Won' and the pulsating climax 'Now I Ride'.
