This review is from: It's Not How Far You Fall, It's The Way You Land (Audio CD)
Occasionally the abject unfairness of life is made only too obvious. That an ex-junkie, jailbird, bailiff should have possibly the finest deep voiced gravelly croak since Tom Waits is surely a kick in the teeth for all the wholesome, skinny-jeaned wannabe rock gods out there.

The cover of No Expectations adds an entirely new dimension to the Stones track. The background wash of mild electronica is overriden by a typically understated but beautiful vocal. Sit back and coast through the (very) late night blackness,
