    There's lots here to get lost in. [Nov 2013, p.109]

    Vivid flamenco guitar burnishes a confessional Scots brogue. A beauty. [Oct 2013, p.98]

    Where Hubbert goes musically from here he may not even know himself, but with Breaks & Bone he's managed to pull himself from the quicksand of grief and cement his latest work amongst the top Scottish albums of 2013.

    As a whole, Breaks & Bone is a little samey, but as a showcase of one of Glasgow’s finest musicians, it’s a gem.

    The Glasgow guitarist's follow-up is more singular, placing Hubbert's spidery flamenco-influenced instrumentals alongside some less compelling vocal outings. [Oct 2013, p.70]

    Despite the nature of the record it's never a self-indulgent or forlorn listen, jumping from one emotion to the next, all the while held together by some truly excellent musicianship and wry Scottish lyrics.
