Fairly uninspired
Starts well, atmospheric touches colouring in around that unconventional Robert Wyatt style voice.

By the end of the album, with all this talk of getting older...well, you the listener feel like you've aged a few extra days. So it outstays its welcome a bit but still worth a go.
On the basis of Canterbury Scene, mixing prog rock with jazz, Rustin Man delivers an arresting art rock album. This time, [Artist318396] doesn't sing, but it's not lost yet. I could listen to "Martian Garden" all day long!
Paul Webb is releasing his proper, debut album and I'm not sure how much folk-rock nostalgia I can stand, before discerning Robert Wyatt's shadow hanging above this drift code.
Off-kilter indie rock music with a hint of 70's soft rock influence. It's not an album that'll captivate you for very long and maybe no more than the first couple of tracks. It's a breathy voice that I think deserves a listen if you like early Bowie or Soft Machine textures, but again, not an album that'll stick with you for long.
