“Songs about life, love, death, happiness¬†and hopelessness in the modern world – a roller coaster of emotions, and a must buy!”

“Listened to it twice.¬† I had planned to analyse it … with my broadcaster and musician heads on, but I just found myself listening¬† to it as a music lover and really enjoyed it.¬† Even the second time around I soon stopped being analytical and continued to stomp my feet – I even threw some air guitar shapes and took out my harp and joined in!”
