5.0 out of 5 stars Nice !, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surrounded [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Following on from 'Our Blood' another interestingly different album, combining acoustic guitar with a palate of electric 'noises' and keyboards. His voice sounds great here, perhaps better than on previous outings, and there are more immediately catchy songs than on his last album...yet I still prefer 'Our Blood'' overall. The thing is Richard Buckners albums are all 'growers' and reward repeated listening...so in a few months time 'Surrounded' could well reveal itself as the best Buckner ever !

As an aside the vinyl version of the album not only sounds great, it also allows my ageing eyes to follow the lyrical thread of the songs !

5.0 out of 5 stars album of the year, 29 Nov 2013
This review is from: Surrounded (Audio CD)
I have been following, liking and enjoying Buckner since his Bloomed album.
Maybe he has not changed that much since then but he has developed his version of folk to near perfection.
There was always a bit of search in Buckner's album, like he was hearing something in his head that didn't materialize when recorded. His journey has been to develop clever lyrics sung in a way that it becomes part of the music, and the music in itself (specially the guitar) becomes part of the voice, the physical Buckner's voice as well as the alter voice of his music.
There was always a kind of nearly hit impression in many of his songs but on this cd he reaches a groove that will be hard to beat.
I am eagerly waiting to hear what comes next, for the moment I have returned again to his catalog.

Highly recommended to anyone!
