**** 4 Stars THE GUARDIAN

‘Unique… what makes the album so compelling is the power of his lyrics’.


‘Chris Wood might be the Ken Loach of songwriting. Very political, but at the same time full of compassion and he grows sharper and more acute with each passing album’.

***** 5 Stars R2 Magazine

‘A master class of observational song writing’.


‘Steeped in tradition, yet always striving for a new day, this is a glorious album proving that, Chris Wood is a bit of a national treasure’.
