Customer Review

on 14 July 2006
This, Nick Drake's first album, is one of the most beautiful CDs that I have ever heard - the autumnal lyrics of endings and gentle sorrow, the astounding and brilliant technical accuracy of his guitar work and the sweeping sadness of the strings combine to create an absolute delight from beginning to end.

I cannot overstate how good this CD is - there is genuinely not a single dud track - they're all strong, they're all well stuctured lyrically, played with finesse and sung in Drake's gentle slightly upper-class voice that insinuates itself gently between the guitar and strings.

Listen to this while looking out the window at the sunset, possibly in mid-October. You will cry.

Best Track: All of them. Ok - if I had to pick one, it would be 'Day is Done'. And 'Three Hours' and...

It is such a tragedy that we only have three CDs of such a great talent. Keep the memory alive.
