Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose" (Audio CD)
Bought this CD pretty much 'cold' on the strength of its 4-stars in Q. It should've got five - it's just magnificent. No other word for it. Stunning vocals (lead and otherwise), classy arrangements, cracking pace. Not a weak track on the album. Deserves to be up there with Florence's Ceremonials et al. If Beth Jeans H and the Hooves of Destiny can pull off something of this stature again they're destined for spending a lot of time in the winners' enclosure. This is the sort of 'find' that prompts you to snap up the entire back-catalogue - no previewing and no questions asked. In this case it's just a lone EP so no great outlay. Can't wait for the Hooves next outing.

Thanks for your excellent review and I can't disagree with anything you say so I'll just add the following:
I have seen BJH & The Hooves of Destiny live three times at festivals, in 2009, 2010 and 2011 and every time was awesome, each time better than the last. The resulting album is what you get when a début album comes off the back of all that hard work. The delays, and there were many were all worth it... the title is remarkable, the album astonishing.
