  1. Two non-trad covers (Anais Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac) remind you that he's earnt the right to do what the hell he wants.

    Skulk is impeccably sung and flawlessly executed by the handpicked musician on show. [May 2012, p.79]

    His treatment of (mostly) traditional songs [is unexpected.]

    This fifth album is arguably his most measured, setting his supple vocals to acoustic, subtly innovative arrangements.
