Damon's first album for 8 years, after a divorce, a new relationship and giving up the booze I hope that he has something to say.

First listen finished and, whilst I don't think it's his best work, it's pretty good. Looking forward to the second listen in a couple of days.

It turns out I've heard half a dozen of these songs already. I heard Damon on the radio the other week, after suffering with some mental health issues a few years ago he now has a partner and a young child, he's in a much better place now. I think it shows in this album, there are echoes of his earlier work in some of these songs. I think it does grow, although I  really liked a couple of songs straight from the off. If I had a criticism, it could do with losing a couple of tracks, there's a bit of filler in there. I may well buy this. It's a low 4 for me. (7/10)

If anyone else likes this and isn't familiar with his other work then checkout: The Hour Of Bewilderbeast (Mercury Music Prize Winner 2000), About a Boy (Soundtrack to the Film) and Have You Fed The Fish?

Am I the only one feeling there is a bit of a Beck wannabe going on here . Middling to me and yes a few fillers . Its peaked my interest to try again but as there is no bang in the middle vote option I will err towards 3 stars

On my second listen now. I have to say the first two tunes are stinkers. But once it settles down, I quite like some of the tunes. Nothing outstanding, but one or two ‘growers’ I suspect. 3/5 from me.

I liked this a lot! Lovely collection of songs. Not a classic but easily worth 4/5 from me.
