  1. In this stripped-back setting, in which Mason's muted guitar and piano melodies are given a subtle electronic frosting by producer Richard X, his meditations on depression and heartbreak are devastatingly direct

A slow burner that invades the room and your mind. So nice to here guitars drums and piano complemented by just the right dose of electronics. The songs are beautiful and the voice is lovely.

One of my favourite cds of the year and one that I will play in the future as it has a classical quality about it. Highly recommended for the lovers of intelligent, background or distinctively vocal music. Full Review »
