Top critical review
Surprised at all the high reviews
on 7 September 2013
A lot of reviews have heaped praise on this album, but I personally did not share the enjoyment of this album. I found it to be largely rather dull and uninteresting - well crafted to a degree perhaps and not outright bad, but certainly somewhat lacking in melody. I found the song '1949' cloyingly misjudged and cringeworthy - this seemed to be a shallow attempt by a young writer to write a song from the point of view of an older person and sounded completely disingenuous.
