CRITIC REVIEWS

Fanfare is the sort of album Jonathan Wilson was bound to make, immaculately crafted and perfectly defined. So much music is easily disposable and transient. Wilson’s Fanfare, much like his idols’ music that influences it, is completely timeless.

80
AllMusic

Fanfare travels easily between intimacy and more psychedelic-influenced euphoria because Wilson's songwriting remains his ace in the hole. For all its laid-back deference to his production, it's tight, clever, and artfully constructed. 

75
The Line of Best Fit

Fanfare might be an intricate, luxuriously layered totem to supreme musicianship and studio wizardy, but it’s far from slick or soulless.

65
The 405

On the whole Fanfare genuinely pushes Wilson both as a songwriter and as a producer.

Worth a listen

Musical revivalism of the best 70's, and at the same time, refreshing sound in the modern times.
