    A fantastic ablum. I would rubbish the 6 mixed reviews. Then again, music, like
    all art is subjective. I am a fan of general, good music. Unless your tastes are
    a bit peculiar I think you will love this album. The Clash Music critique is perfect.
    Uncut is my favourite music magazine and gives it the 2nd biggest rating. The Guardian "Beautiful and Bewitching" also sums this album
    up. Jonathon Wilson took a long time in writing this album. It is beautifully crafted and superbly written. Laurel Canyon sure has found a new star. The album is oftentimes dreamy and is dotted throughout with great guitar rift's. A must have in the collection for any music lover. Expand

    The zeal in presenting a glut of music like this is commendably refreshing actually, but in the end Gentle Spirit may be too big for its own good.

    Gentle Spirit is a set of gorgeously detailed folk-rock ambles, most over six minutes long.

    There are times when Wilson's meandering style emphasis on ambiance turns on a twilight sound.
