A great eccentric British Folk/Pop Album from part time musician Matt Berry!
on 20 February 2015
I have a vast collection of different artists and genres. I can appreciate music in two ways, those artists that are not exactly poets but can make great music (pop music) and those who don't make the nicest listening music, but the words are the key point of their music (Bob Dylan etc..)
Matt Berry captivates my interest because he is a music enthusiast, he clearly likes The Beatles, The Folk Music scene, and great harmonies in general. I think his eccentric voice suits the style of music he writes well, he is not afraid to mix in his own unique humour with lines such as "I don't give a damn for the cows and the sheep as they strain to excrete“ and random topics such as a badgers funeral. I don't pretend to take his lyrics seriously, but I like him for the first reason, it is great music that suits his style and it is enjoyable to listen to.
Not such as fan of his follow up Kill The Wolf, however, so I will wait and see if he can make another album that matches up to this one again, or this is just a one off.
Nonetheless, it is a great album with great music, creativity that matches his own style, humour and voice. Pop/Folk enthusiasts, definitely give it a listen!
