    All 12 are of a consistently high standard and sung with feeling.

    If conviction and quality are the measure of a songwriter and musician, the songs and performances on Brother Sinner & the Whale are the very measure of both.

    Dark, edgy, yet full of light and hope, Brother Sinner... is dazzling, moving too, and bordering on perfection. [Dec 2012, p.89]
  4. Not for the faint-hearted, nor those offended by religion. Often brilliant.
