The 10 songs on offer here are all haunting and vary in time length somewhat.. my own favourite .. the strangely titled LITTLE COLOURED BALLOONS is a 10 minute beauty/ beast of a song.. it practically bleeds out the lyrics. John certainly knows how to tell a story in his words. He also invents a new music offshoot with this, it sounds like a Prog Folk variation here.
His music also blends the beautiful musical passages with heart breaking words that compliment each other rather well I found too that my head sings his lyrics constantly like they're tattooed there forever. I think that if this fellows music was a movie it would be classed as PG, similar to the effect that THE EXORCIST had in the 70s.. you may even hide behind the couch when playing this too.
I recently attended a gig in Glasgow where John appeared and it was terrific, He played several songs from this album and even the crowd fave Little Coloured balloons. He was surprisingly funny too, he spoke to the crowd between songs and showed a real dry wit along with his sombre words.
My wife was not so impressed with his work = she thought he was unclear with his Southern drawl.. There again, the set was not a happy listen, more a brutal battering of the verbal kind.
He certainly wears his heavy heart on a talented sleeve and I was honoured to later speak to the gentleman and found him very pleasant.
As for this wonderfull CD.... I think it's going to be played often... but a word of warning.. don't play it alone with the lights out.

I find it hard to believe such a beautiful album didn't get more recognition. It still doesn't have a review on all music.com, strange as it may sound. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
Excellent album. Melodious and well sung , varied songs.
Not many laughs though.
This is quite simply the best album of the 21sr century. No kidding. i have not been so moved for years. Think profound, musical, tune laden, experimental and think original. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Guy
