5.0 out of 5 stars BullinaGreenMan .., 24 Sep 2013
This review is from: Man and Myth (Audio CD)
OK.. So i finally took the plunge and after a gap of thirteen years and bought the new Roy Harper record, "Many and Myth". I must confess that I didn't have hugely high expectations - even though [for the first time in his career] the release has been nigh-on universally praised.. But to my delight after listening three times this afternoon in the office, my initial reaction is one of true amazement and delight. It's kinda weird.. It is so very different to what i expected - certainly a new direction [a very full sound; more "band" focussed] but to me also strangely kinda reminiscent of a new marriage between two of my favourite Roy recordings - Bullinamingvase and The Green Man. It is too early for me to do a track by track blow down, so these are just first impressions... The record is packed with all the usual Roy musical and lyrical tropes [and keeping with the Mumford-times, with added featured BANJO licks; imagine... For me an awesome addition to the soundscape] and yet - simultaneously - the record also seems his most original recording for years and years. And so, I guess in summary for once I find myself in agreement with those very pillars of the press that Roy so mercilessly ripped into in HORS D'OEUVRES as, after three listens, I cannot be agree that MAN and MYTH merits FIVE stars...
