CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash

A dazzling display of technical and emotional virtuosity, ‘Busy Guy’ is an incredible experience, a work of true intimacy from a songwriter whose return is long overdue. Magical.

Mojo

Busy Guy gives Fretwell a magnificent second chance, апd а а richly deserved one.

80
Uncut

Using mostly acoustic guitar and some keyboard, Fretwell delivers a series of poignant vignettes.

80
Record Collector

It's all compelling enough to keep drawing listeners back for the next 14 years. Magnificent.

Beats Per Minute

This is a delicately sincere and softly stark album, and arguably Fretwell’s best. It’s certainly his most intimate, but after all that time away, he’s no doubt figured out exactly how he wanted to say what he wants to.

The Line of Best Fit

With Busy Guy, as before, Fretwell proves himself an artist that deserves attention and, if things play out as they should, this will be the album that delivers it.
