Genuine talent, great album,
This review is from: Until the Traffic Stops (Audio CD)
I have both the original album, and this re-released version. It is of the highest quality considering it is predominantly recorded in a bedroom studio.
There are no fillers in this album, just songs of great lyrical quality and content, and backed up by orchestration that is well beyond what may be expected from such a modest set up. Melanchly songs about love, loss and wanting to leave the city behind all contribute to this gem. Songs such 'My Word What a Mess', 'Scotland the Brave' and 'Until the Traffic Stops' are stand outs for me, but that is not to suggest that the rest of the songs aren't as great.
The good news is also that Alex has a load of new songs being played on tour, showing that this album is just a taster. This is no one-trick pony, and he's a nice bloke too.
Buy this album. Support this artist. Catch him live.
