“This is an album of real craftsmanship and flair.Acoustic wizardry, deceptively gentle harmonies that only emphasise the bewilderment and sense of heartbreak in the lyrics,creates an experience that is complex and yet accessible to everyone.The instrumentals ‘Slumber’ and ‘For Want of a Better Name ‘ add richness and depth to the album.On some songs like ‘Once’ and ‘Life on Rent,’ the vocals slide away at critical points and there are problems moving between registers.In others such as ‘The Only One,” Stu’s perfectly nuanced delivery draws the listener in and when the song is repeated with a piano accompaniment becomes even more spare and bleak – a haunting conclusion to the album. The whole shimmers with emotion but never becomes maudlin and as lyrics and images impress themselves into your mind leaves the listener realising that this is an album that is impossible to listen to just once.
