'Gold In A Brass Age' will be David Gray's eleventh album in a career that spans over 25 years, several Brit and Grammy nominations, and three No.1 UK albums, including for the breakout multi-platinum 'White Ladder'. It is also a vital new collection of songs from an artist still revelling in his passion for song-craft, pushing himself into unfamiliar terrain, surprising himself as much as his fans along the way.

I have really tried and wanted to like this new album, but for me, apart from maybe one song, it feels as though it lacks ideas and as a result, is positively depressing and, I'm sorry to say, a real dirge. Sorry David, but, despite all your social media hype, this is not your greatest moment.
This is a less personal album than many of his previous efforts - observational in a good way, and very well produced. It is what I would call a textured album - perfectly nice as background, but when you listen carefully it reveals a craftsman at work. I think that this is his best effort in a long time. Well worth a listen or two at least. It's growing on me too, so may even make it to 5 stars eventually. He kicks off a tour to support this release shortly.
But that being said, GIABA it's most definately a grower. I've played it repeatedly since its release a week ago - and the quality and intricacy of his lyrics and their melodies - is clear for all to hear. This was illustrated in all their majesty when I watched Dave live in Cambridge on Saturday night and cemented what I've always known. Dave is one of the best singer songwriters of our times.
So to sum up - this album is not as good as Mutneers. I'm pretty sure that was Dave's 'Top of the Mountain' - but this is a pretty good climb near to it.
