Martin keeps bringing it
on 7 October 2013
This is a shockingly good collection of songs.Melodic, stupidly catchy and on songs like "Angel (For Anna)" and "Emmanuel" very tender and moving.The production is fresh and casually hops over through and around the genres of rock,dance and soul.It retains the classic structures of great hymn singing belt out loud mass anthems and has all the quirky independent soul searching qualities of an artist on a quest.Martins voice is as good as anything else he has ever done.This feels like another step forward and I suspect it will be a staple in my house in the next few months.
My friend Stanley Camshaft who doesn't usually listen to this style of music said on hearing "Emmanuel" that it almost made him cry.
