  1. Whilst each track delivers exactly what is to be expected from an IAK album it is a little disappointing that there seems to have been no development from the previous outing.

Their previous albums had a sort of small band sound (only 3 members) and gave you the impression they would sound that way at the drop of a hat in any pub or on any stage without a sound-check..Sky At Night however,has been given a lush production with strings appearing on most tracks and just a lovely sense of space for the instruments to support John Bramwells ever better-with-age characterful tones. Self-depreciating,optimistic,witty and nostalgic.A highly recommended new best-friend of an album that won`t wear thin upon repeat listens. Full Review »
