Excellent, although he seems to have swallowed the keyboard sound from Peter Gabriel II throughout.


I like it too. I don't think it's anything unexpected - he's got his style down, but really good songs and nice arrangements.


Loving the keyboards on this, that moment on the opener when it plays from keyboard to trumpet and back again is gorgeous...

reminds me a lot of Beck's Midnite Vultures - a similar turn in their relative careers up to that point.


I can't find the record anywhere. Sold out wherever I go, it seems. It must be doing well.

Finally found it. I wasn't a big fan of her earlier work, I have to admit, which sounded a bit cold and artificial to me, but this one I like a lot. Wonderful songs.

Robbie McIntosh and Martin Ditcham, two of the regulars on the last two Talk Talk-albums reincarnate a similar sound on Held By Trees...one single on Bandcamp so far...
