Opener 'Panic' leads us straight into the world of David Ford who comes across lyrically angry and determined to get his point across, it's as bouncy as it is lyrically and musically impressive. The bass line reminds me a bit of the Jam's 'Start!' The Very Best Of The Jambut let this take nothing away from an awesome song. 'Making up for lost time' takes us into the American singer song writer more laid back style, where you can hear some of his idles shining through. He really tells a story and versus and choruses flow smooth;y and it reminds me a little of the bluetones The Singles (Plus Bonus CD)swagger on their later songs. 'Waiting for the storm' is even more laid back harmonica and piano american country, maybe a little bit of Eagles The Complete Greatest Hits in there. Hopefully that won't offend too many people. :) 'Surfin Guantanamo Bay' is proper blues, nice steel guitar and raw vocals. Love it!! 'To Hell with the world' is my stand out song on the album, almost sounds like a 'Songs For The Road' Part 2 with amazing lyrics and simple but massively effective piano play. This one brings me to tears whenever I hear it. My favourite line is 'Maybe the greatest of heroes inhabit the stories that nobody hears' (sounds like it's about David Ford in terms of his songs, not that he would be so modest). 'Stephen' is a sad sad song about the murder of policeman Stephen Carroll who was shot dead by terrorists in Northern Ireland. A heartbreaking song about a tragic event and situation in the country.Read more ›

David Fords third solo album is as good as his first (and second for that matter) which is all you should need to know. If there was any justice in the music world David would be a household name he has mastered the art of song writing and has consistently achieved levels others can only dream of. Sadly this isn't the case and his albums languish ignored on the shelves and buried in bargin bins which is such a waste.

You've looked at this page so you are obviously considering buying this album, my suggestion is simple buy it love it and come back for more from this truly talented individual.

By Andy Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Mar. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Eastbourne-based David Ford is, without doubt, the greatest artist that has never quite made it into the big time. Cutting his musical teeth in the indie band, Easyworld, "Let The Hard Times Roll" is probably my favourite David Ford album. Having a favourite Ford album is quite a difficult and contentious thing, because every one of his studio albums have been nothing less than excellent and every one of them has a distinctly different character, so it's very possible to love them all equally, but in different ways. Released in 2010, his third solo album came after parting ways with his major record label, Independiente, and the artistic freedom which came from not having people telling him how his music should sound and be marketed shines through on one of his most ambitious and creatively rich collection of songs. Add the fact that virtually everything you hear on this record, with a few exceptions, is the insanely talented multi-instrumentalist Ford himself, the level of accomplishment is nothing short of genius. Thinking back to when I first heard this album, I remember that it took a few plays for the material to really get under my skin, but when it did, these songs stayed in my head for months and have remained firm favourites ever since then.

I usually attempt to highlight the best songs on each album I write about, but in this instance I know I'm going to end up talking about nearly every single track, such is the quality of "Let The Hard Times Roll". The grandiose, dramatic opening bars of "Panic" resplendent with chiming tubular bells and strings immediately tell the listener that they're about to experience something truly special.

While there is some great performance talent showing up on the various "X-Factor" like shows, I still feel theirs nothing like the real thing, which is gutsy singer-songwriters performing their own stuff. The title of the album, says what that can mean however. Its a tough road to follow and the music makes that clear, in a "sit down, open a beer, and have a good listen" sort of way. I play this again and again....something about original music does that.

Following on from the superb "Songs For The Road" comes a well balanced mix of upbeat and "folky" songs which grab the listener on the first listen. Not so much a grower of an album - more an instant classic. You won't be disappointed. Great album for any mood. 5*
