This is an album of such beauty and power and such a mixture of raw honesty and musical craftsmanship that it is amazing to realize that this is his first album. He seems to have arrived on the scene fully formed. There are so many highlights and 'goose pimpley' moments on this album that it seems almost churlish to pick one out but when he sings "her candle skin and her candle eyes' in the monumental climax of Don';t Let Go, I felt that this was the most moved I have ever felt by the amazing power of music. This is an extraordinary album that I think may soon be considered to be a classic. Thank you Mr Tom Baxter for getting me excited about real music again. Its BRILLIANT!!!!!
