There's soulful blues, heavy guitar and very unique tunes like Marie Celeste all belted out by the most diverse singer going.
What more could you ask for.....
.....apart from some more consistent pricing. Come on Amazon, don't deprive music fans of this utter gem by charging such sky high prices, please.
Been watching this CD on here since well before it was released and it has changed price every day. I've seen it as high as £16.50 but it's yet to reach what I paid for it at a Union gig merch stand (a tenner) and even though I have had it a while, I'm still checking daily just for the hell of it to see how long it takes them to see sense.
Sort yourselves out Amazon.... I've stopped buying from you, how many others are doing the same. Don't assume just because HMV is in trouble you have no competition so can rip us all off.... it won't work, there's plenty more places to get CD's from (and I'm still buying plenty of them, but not from you)
You should be ashamed, is it not enough to avoid paying UK taxes, but you want to fleece your UK customers as well? good luck with that then!!
The name of the band is totally apt because Luke Morley and Pete Shoulder together really is a union of wonderful talents, from Morley's superb guitar tones, from full on rock to acoustic sensitivity. Then young Mr Shoulder, who simply has a stunning, unique voice that seems equally at ease with ballads and rockers. The World is Yours is primarily a rock album but there is enough here to suit most palettes. In addition to aforementioned rock and balladry there are elements of Blues and splashes of Country/Bluegrass.
Praise to Morley and Shoulder too for the thought that clearly went into the arrangements and running order of the album. It has a wonderful flow dovetailing the different styles to such an extent that there is a natural pace to the album and the listener is led from track to track in a way that encourages deep listening.
The title track is majestic, opening with delicate acoustic riffs that soon develop into hammer blow rock riffs underpinning a brooding melody and vocal from Shoulder. Here the attention to detail is apparent as the next track, The Perfect Crime is a beautiful acoustic lament. What Doesn't Kill You is in itself a killer track rammed full of heavy riffs that pull Shoulders vocals into Coverdale/ Plant territory. The album then closes with a simply wonderful ballad, You Can Share My Dream, haunting, heartfelt then sliding into an instrumental outro.
Morley has a well earned reputation as a great songwriter able to create stories within any song structure and Pete Shoulder is clearly of the same ilk. The Union have created a really strong musical bond that is out of the top draw.

The Union's best album yet! There isn't a poor track on there. If you like their other albums, or liked Thunder, I highly recommend you buy this!Published on 29 Aug. 2013 by JoshWP18
Now, I've liked the work of Messrs Shoulder and Morley in the guise of The Union - certainly for the maiden and follow up albums - but this, their third effort, is a little more... Read morePublished on 19 Aug. 2013 by J. M. Green
Not quite what I expected but a good album nevertheless. I think the cover is a clever design making it appear to be progressive when it is more rock and roll orientated.Published on 21 Jun. 2013 by Susan Dean
Luke Morley is a class act. He's unearthed a great foil in Pete Shoulder. Live, The Union exude quality. Read morePublished on 18 Jun. 2013 by Doublecross
