I don't write reviews as a rule. Over my lifetime (and outside of work :) ) I've felt compelled to write maybe about 6 of them. One for a really good hotel, one for a really bad one. One for a game I played on a Spectrum as a 12 year old and one for EMF (which was far from complementary). Also one for a 'Best Pub Juke Box Compilation Ever' album, which really annoyed me.

Anyway...

I really like Cherry Ghost. From the get-go, from the first airing of, 'People Help The People'.
Simon Aldred with Cherry Ghost is not exactly prolific, and it's a case of being left wanting more. I really liked 75% of the debut album. 4 or 5 of those songs (aforementioned 'People...', '4am', 'Mathematics'...) Remain on heavy rotation on my MP3 list.
I listen to a lot of music. I have done for the last 25 odd years. I love the Beatles, the Doors, New Order, the Stone Roses, Jimmy Webb, Oasis (you get the picture). I'm quite content to stick Cherry Ghost to that list. Not many songs/albums grip me any more. Certainly not enough to have me listening to repeat plays of particular songs. But Herd Runners did just that. I love songs that are well written, have hooks and melody (you know - all the old fashioned stuff). I love immediacy, and struggle a little with 'difficult' musicians.

I kind of want to shake everyone I meet by the collar and tell them to listen to this, and even if it doesn't hit them first time, listen until it does.
Obviously we don't do this. We smile and congratulate ourselves on being in the clever club, for understanding gold when we are presented with it.

Incredible depth of lyric, soulful voice, Cherry Ghost went from unknown to a favourite as soon as I heard a few songs. No weak albums present, and this one in particular has some superb songs. First song "Clear skies" is really stirring. "Don't leave me here alone" being another really solid track.

Truly stunning album, I can't stop listening to it. I also have the first two Cherry Ghost albums, but this is my favourite, if you like this group or just want some new music to listen to, I highly recommend this purchase, I bought the cd and vinyl :) if I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!!!

Herd Runners is a beautiful album. On first listening it didn't hit the spot immediately, but I knew that this was something special, and would be a grower. After 2 weeks of constantly playing in the car, I have got to know and love this album. The very talented Cherry Ghost have produced a third quality album, long may they continue.

What a great album. I thought the first two were ok but this is a transformation. Stand out track is Sacramento but all the tracks are good. Not one dud track. Breath of fresh air. Long may it continue.

Exquisite melancholy perfect for late night reflection. Tales of loss and redemption accompanied by hopelessly beautiful melodies. One day Cherry Ghost will hopefully get the recognition they deserve.

It's great to see Simon and the boys back, and for me this is a lovely, subtle and concise album full of first-class songwriting. I much prefer the overall understated feel of Herd Runners to the last album, which personally I found a tad overblown in parts. If you've still got a soft spot for Thirst for Romance, there will be plenty here for you to enjoy. It's a big thumbs up from me - there's no flab here, just ten perfectly-crafted songs that flow seemlessly together.

a CD turned up!, thought it was a big small for a vinyl record :), even though it clearly says VINYL in bold capitals in the title. Took the 25% off thought as I couldn't be bothered with the kerfuffle.
The album itself is very good, and a proper 'grower'. Maybe not quite as good as Beneath this burning shoreline which was a masterpiece imo, but its a lot happier and much less meloncholy, maybe a little bit too much steel pedal for my liking, but overall a solid piece of work
