This review is from: Simple (Audio CD)
I stumbled on Andy Yorke supporting Frank Turner a couple of months ago in Winchester and bought this album on a whim, vaguely recalling some promising moments in his short set. Several plays of this CD later and I am gobsmacked. This is truly beautiful music. Every song stands alone. Each lyrically perfect, and wonderfully performed.
After reading that back it seems to be a rather hyperbolated passage. But that's exactly how this album comes across. "Twist of the Knife" is the standout track. As haunting as it is beautiful. Other highlights include "Rise and Fall" (the single), "One in a Million" and "Lay Down". Saying this, none of them could be classed as filler.
Buy this album. Everyone deserves to hear it.
