    I'm a big big fan of this guy a really talented song writer who stands out by miles in a market flooded with singer songwriters. Anyone into good songwriting needs to check him out.

Anyone into good songwriting needs to check him out. This latest offering is Fionn Regan stripped down to the bare bones -there is literally no production going on here. I thought his last effort "100 Acres of Sycamore", while having some great songs, had a little bit too much going on at times. I wouldn't have called bloated but by this guys standards it probably was. This is the polar opposite, but it proves to be a clever move as the quality of songs speak for themselves, both musically and lyrically. 67 Blackout is my own personal favourite. The only quibble I have is the 10 tracks finish in under a half hour, so you feel little bit short changed. Expand

    Lucinda Williams has labelled Regan "his generation's answer to Bob Dylan," and on this evidence, that doesn't feel like hyperbole. [Feb 2013, p.90]

    Intimately compelling, from his first strum to last breath, Regan passes the acid test of songmanship; all 10 are perfect as they are. [Feb 2013, p.109]

    The 10 songs last barely 25 minutes, but in that pared-back simplicity every melody and bass thrum and poetic image counts.
