Nothing short of stunning,
This review is from: Under a Sun (Audio CD)
I had never heard of Witness before when I picked up the headphones in a local record store and played a few seconds of the first three tracks. Needless to say, that was enough to ensure that I handed over my money almost immediately. Witness have produced one of the most melodic and uplifting albums of the year. The songs sweep you along on a wave of intricate guitarwork, heartfelt lyrics and George Starkie's rich and evocative vocals. You Are All My Own Invention has to be the stand-out track of the album. Building from a piano-led, acoustic, opening it rises to a tremendous chorus that will have you leaping you of your seat, shouting "Thank you Wigan!!" (the band's hometown).
An utterly essential purchase.
