I first heard Hozier a few weeks ago on the radio singing 'Take me to church', I immediately searched for a place to get a copy as it wasn't on Itunes yet. The song is a tour de force of a track, a remarkably powerful piece of music, apparently about the difficulties of growing up in Ireland being gay. If you watch the video on Youtube it may well make you cry... His vocal is soulful and magical.

So I was eagerly anticipating the release of this album, and was pleased to get a copy of the vinyl from my brother. The production is exquisite, it sounds amazing, probably the best thing I have heard all year, no bad tracks; just a wonderful fusion of folk, blues and soul. It reminds me of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks and in certain places is similar to The Black Keys, but to compare it to anything else is a bit of a disservice really - give it a listen and you realize that this is a truly remarkable album, the best thing to come out of Ireland in a long, long time.

I couldn't recommend this album more, enjoy...

Andrew Hozier-Byrne's passionate outpouring on his wonderful single "Take me To Church", promised the next big thing when it lodged near the top of the Irish Republic's singles chart last year. Sceptics might argue that Irish Times immediately dishing awarding a thumping 10 out of 10 for his new debut album might be treated in the same manner as the Latvian European song contest jury dishing out full marks to Estonia. The truth however is that the paper should be applauded for its impeccable taste as it is a very fine debut album from this Wicklow artist which will undoubtedly figure highly on this years Christmas wish lists and could trouble the charts we'll into next year.

Hozier has a soulful and stirring voice, penning songs which are wordy, literate and well executed. The aforementioned single is described by Hozier as "a bit of a losing your religion song" although the accompanying video takes on stronger themes not least the persecution of the gay community in Russia. Also check out the excellent performance on Jools Holland as a taster to his talent. The good news is that Hozier is no one hit wonder. This debut is full of songs of high quality such as the slow blues of the "Angel of Small Death and the Codeine Scene" where there are echoes of Pat Kane's vocal tones in his voice. He rocks out on songs like "Jackie and Wilson'" to great effect but its the big ballads where he comes into his own. One such is the dramatic "Work Song" full of aching vocals and heartfelt soul, another is "From Eden" a glorious pop song that could easily trouble the top of the charts if released as a single. Any doubts that Hozier can cut it live are dispelled on the gentle acoustic ballad "Cherry Wine" that closes the album.

Quite simply, this is the best music I've heard for a long time. I usually like a few tracks on an album and I'm not too bothered about the rest. Hozier is a brilliant songwriter and I love his voice. I love the whole album. Take Me to Church reduces me to tears.

Just when you think that there is nothing fresh and exciting to listen to, once in a while the miracle of a life changing album is released. Like most of the reviewers I bought this on hearing the rich and powerful 'Take me to Church'. And just when you think things can't any better the tracks on the album change everything, the brilliant 'Sedated' which I can't stop playing and 'From Eden' are the stand out tracks, but there is nothing on this album that I don't like. The album has variety depth and Hoziers voice is amazing. Buy it and see for yourself, play it in a candle lit room with a glass of wine and let the music wash over you, you won't be disappointed.

Whatever your music tastes I'd be surprised if you did not love this album. I've tried to put this album in a box and give it a genre but it's not easy. I get bits of Bombay Bicycle Club one minute and Traveling Wilburys the next. Now that's a broad church. Speaking of which, "Take Me To Church" has to be one of the most powerful tracks I've ever heard. Quite brilliant. The whole album is well crafted, beautifully arranged and produced and for me there's not a bad track on it. Compulsive and supremely enjoyable listening.

I needed a CD to play while driving back from Heathrow to The cold North of England,in the darkness of a January night.Bought this on the strength of the single and was totally,and I mean totally blown away by this collection.Every single track,some hauntingly beautiful,others with the softest melodies and stunning piano,all vocals are supremely delivered,i hav'nt had chance to see who produced this but whoever it was, superb.

Best Album I have heard for ages, what a talent. Every track is different & the whole album is soulful, bluesy & Hozier has it nailed. Personal favourite " from eden" but every track is great. Only wish I had tickets to see him live on now sold out tour.
