4.0 out of 5 stars Back in the World - indeed!
As a listener of David Gray's previous albums this one is a massive step up to more original and creative material. He says himself that he tends to start with the melody with the lyrics coming later which may be the reason the sound connects with me more than the lyrics. Like most good albums it may take a while before the penny drops with what is going on here but do...

3.0 out of 5 stars so maybe his next will be better.
Different - but sorry, other than the first track, nothing really 'does it for me'. I have every other DG album, plus a superb 'Live Covers 2001 - 207' album, so maybe his next will be better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in the World - indeed!, 9 July 2014

This review is from: Mutineers (Audio CD)
As a listener of David Gray's previous albums this one is a massive step up to more original and creative material. He says himself that he tends to start with the melody with the lyrics coming later which may be the reason the sound connects with me more than the lyrics. Like most good albums it may take a while before the penny drops with what is going on here but do allow that to happen! After 3-4 proper listens you should be there. The first 8 tracks or so are vintage Gray with the opener, 'Back in the World' a personal statement of where he finds himself now after years in a sort of wilderness. The track has humour and is well written and I think the first single off the album. The cello solo in the second half of 'Last Summer' merits particular mention - it is just beautiful. Goose bumps and all that. The album takes a sort of different direction on the last 3 tracks and seem to be influenced by reading other writers' work but I'm not sure how I feel about them. See what you think. The album could accurately be described as mellow but David Gray is in fine voice and displaying a fine maturity after all these years. 'Beautiful Agony' is emerging as my favourite track with a hint in the lyrics that it's biographical. The deluxe version of the album comes with 2 complementary 'live' CDs with all your old favourites and slightly alternative takes as you are meant to do with a 'live' audience. A nice addition for all DG fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Mutineer, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutineers (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful album. I was lucky enough to see David on his recent tour and he started the show with eight songs from Mutineers - I had never seen an artist do this before with new material ! It shows he has confidence in this new music and knows it is his best work so far. Whether it sells as much as previous albums like White Ladder is another matter of course! It certainly deserves to. "Back in the World" is clever and ridiculously catchy, the cello on "Last Summer" is sublime and I am struggling to find words to describe how good "Birds of a High Artic" is. Buy with total confidence.

Having not listened to anything since Life in slow motion (loved that album but it reminded me of a very traumatic time in my life so found it a difficult listen) Started reading reviews of Mutineers and it got me really intrigued. Well cake and eat it aside, 10 out 11 tracks are superb especially my favourite 'as the crow flies' The bottom line is you don't need to be a fan to love this album. I'm not and I do. Just buy and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album from a professional and polished performer, 26 Aug 2014
By 
MDG "gardmal" (West Yorkshire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Mutineers (Audio CD)
This album has David Gray on top form. I am tempted to say it is his best album for years, but with David Gray that is difficult to say because he has consistently produced high qulaity and entertaining material. But this is something special and with the two disk live ablum it becomes a very special product. Unless you do not like Grey, in which case why would you consider even buying it, then I promise that you will not be disapointed.

I'm a massive David Gray fan, and this is his best work for quite a few years, possibly the best since White Ladder. Some catchy tunes, and some incredibly mellow sounds make this a true David Gray classic!

David Gray on top form and the 3 album version is a must. Saw David debut these songs at the end of last year in Northern Ireland. David is full of energy at the minute and in this album it shines through. All great songs even the previously criticised song Cake here. This is a must for all music fans and is original album of the year ranking alongside Wilko's for album of the year. David is so underrated and also a great guy as nothing is too much trouble for his fans as he showed in Ireland he has time for everybody. This is a 6 star album!

This review is from: Mutineers (Audio CD)
Stunning. I was blown away watching him perform the tracks at the Albert Hall recently. They are all growing on me, not to mention Back in the World which is genius. And I was very very happy to find out that the rest of the CD is of his live performance at the Festival Hall 3 years ago.., a highly memorable night. What a treat! Go on, buy the album without any hesitation!
