By B. Wright VINE VOICE on 5 Feb. 2010
Format: Audio CD
Fyfe's first solo album is a mixed affair in terms of sound and emotion, jumping easily through jubilant songs such as the opening track, 'When You Walk in the Room', and laments on lost love like the beautiful 'Barricades'. If you are coming to this album having heard and liked the Guillemots albums then you may be surprised as this is quite different; a collection of brilliant, yet simple, pop songs, rather than a lush experiment in creating soundscapes. The only track that sounds to me like it could have been on a Guillemots album is 'So Brand New', the song from which the album title comes.

Recorded after a break-up, it deals with the singer's feelings about the relationship. There are the exuberant high points that come out in the first track and songs such as lead single 'She Needs Me' with its soaring chorus, or 'High on the Tide', which has a lazy, laid-back summer feel. On the flip side are the tormented, introspective songs that deal with the aftermath; with lyrics such as 'love is a crippled dream', they are not easy to listen to, yet the pain often translates into something beautiful. The plaintive 'Livewire' with its finger-style acoustic guitar backing is another stand-out.

This is a strong body of work, with all tracks intelligent and well-written. The choruses of the upbeat songs are catchy and will stick in your head, while it is difficult at times to stop listening to the more introspective tracks. The joyous songs are good, but it is the quieter tracks which show Fyfe at his strongest. He has a knack of writing fantastic ballads. Yet it is this that perhaps is the downfall of the album; it feels at times that the album is mired in this melancholic, instrospective mood and the pace is somewhat similar throughout.

Despite this, it still comes highly recommend. If you can find the special edition with the bonus disc then snap it up. The extra ten tracks on this bonus disc are just as good as the standard album.

I am disappointed, but not surprised, that this album did not bother the charts. Fyfe is one of the most precious talents of the modern era.
A great little album that very quietly grabs hold of you and makes your life feel better for having listened to it.

some songs are instant, others are growers. None are fillers.

I wasn't familiar with Fyfe Dangerfield's work and bought this album on the basis of a favourable review. But it is utterly delightful. it reminds me in some ways of early Crowded House although simpler lyrically and with less ornamental melodies. It has a freshness about it that will make you want to listen to it again and again. The arrangements and his voice are very clear which makes enjoying the lyrics so much easier. It's not an album for the hard rockers in the audience but if you like a good singing voice and sweet melodies you'll certainly enjoy this lovely album

'Fly Yellow Moon', indie-band Guillemot's founder Fyfe Dangerfield's debut album is one of the most instantly engaging that I have heard in a long time. I bought it primarily for the hit single, 'She's Always A Woman', a cover of the Billy Joel classic, which was used in the John Lewis television adverts a few years ago, and it's appearance on a compilation ('My Songs 2014') that I recently purchased, helped to jog my memory of it's existence. However, as soon as I heard the excellent, self-penned (the first of nine) opener, 'When You Walk In The Room', I found myself playing it over-and-over before I even thought about listening to the rest of the album, this indie-rock song and Fyles' vocals grabbed me from the very first listen.

Fast becoming one of my most played albums, I think Fyfe has a terrific voice, and 'Fly Yellow Moon' is packed with great, diverse, intelligently written songs. I would have been happy with just 'She's Always A Woman', and a couple of decent tracks on board, but I do like all of them. 'Livewire' is a lovely ballad, the melancholy 'Firebrand' is a nice and mellow tune, and the superb, dark 'Faster Than The Setting Sun', a single that surprisingly failed to chart, is a real standout.

An all around fantastic musician, please don't leave it as long as I did, buy this addictive and rounded album today.

Lead single, 'She needs me' and 'So Brand New' are the truly stand out moments but backed up by the most amazing and powerful lyrics throughout the remaining tracks makes this an essential listen, I throroughly recommend this.

Fyfe's new album dropped onto my door mat first thing this morning. From the first listen to "she needs me" on Jonathan Ross's radio show about a month ago I immediately googled this guy and found out he was in The Guillemots.
Thia album is gonna see Fyfes career ascend new heights, I think its a solid first solo album. I dont give new albums much of a chance, and consider myself quite a harsh critic, but this one seemed to just be one stormer after another. well done Fyfe, whens the uk tour?

Sometimes I despair when I buy a CD and only one or two tracks actually stand out. I blame the MP3 generation and the ease of picking off one or two songs from an artist. So it's with delight that I listened to this album, and then listened again, and again, and found myself humming the catchy refrains and beautifully simple lyrics that make Fly Yellow Moon what I would call a 'proper album'. Fyfe Dangerfield's voice is smooth and earnest, reminiscent of a mellow Jarvis Cocker. So buy the album, go home, turn the lights off, play this and enjoy - put the book and the computer away so that you can give this all your attention - it's earned it in my opinion.
