This review is from: The Iron Gates at Troop and Newport (Audio CD)
Compared to his first album there's slightly more diverse instrumentation on 'The Iron Gates At Troop and Newport', but Luke Roberts very much remains a lonesome cowboy on the prairy. Slow, very slow stripped-down folk & country songs sung in his instantly recognizable, fragile nasal voice. Lyric-wise these nine songs take a bit less bizarre twists than on his debut and even though I'm not sure where they're are aimed at, they get to your heart without exception.
