Fav Tracks: Retreat to Find; Irene (Very very Beautiful); Festival Song
A confident, mature album that isn't flashy or showy. Just a collection of solidly written songs delivered by a professional man in his 50's that's been working in music for the better part of his life. Witty, sardonic lyrics (Summer Ghosts) sidle up next to shots of nostalgia (Festival Song), showing a way to age gracefully and eloquently.
Origin: United Kingdom

Wow. Ten good stories about midlife crisis. It sounds like early 90s music that soothes the soul. Some jazz, electronica and trip - hop. His voice is very subdued, perfectly matches the songs.

FAV TRACKS: Hand, Figures In The Landscape, Summer Ghosts, Festival Song

LEAST FAV TRACKS: Irene, Sunlight Follows The Night
