Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 17 February 2014
Henry Priestman had something of a surprise hit on his hands when he released his 1st solo album "The Chronicles of modern life" with Radio 2 legend Johnnie Walker describing it as "music for grumpy old men". I loved it despite being a few years short of "old". With its honest lyrics, simple instrumentation and catchy tunes there was something for everyone to relate to. However, Henry was ranting against the system a bit with some of the songs. This eagerly-awaited and often delayed follow-up finds Henry a few years later in a more wistful and melancholy mood. There are still a few anti-establishment songs combined with some retrospective tracks and also a version of his and Lotte Mullan's excellent tune "Valentine's Song". Henry has well and truly left his past group success behind and proven that, even rapidly approaching his 60s, he is an excellent singer-songwriter and an antidote to the bland teens that seem to bog down the charts.
