Customer Review

on 1 July 2000
An earlier review by a 'fan from London' states that this album is not in the same league as 'Inside Out'. Maybe not, but should we make comparisons with work from 25 years ago? Anyone who has listened to John Martyn from that time will know that all his songs evolve with time. So too do his albums. I will readily admit that much of JM's eighties and nineties output left me somewhat left out. Too smooth, minimal guitar etc.
But for me this album harks back to that earlier time, with airy, soaring guitar when needed and a tight rhythm which holds it all together. Standouts - So Sweet, Wildflower, Feel so Good, Field of Play.... these impressed from the first play. The other tracks were slow to enter the conscious but now having played the album to death over the last few weeks I can safely say that this is the best John Martyn album in ages. And the songs work well live too!
