    The songs he's written with new acolyte Sorren Maclean and Idlewild bandmate Rod Jones are more assured than ever.

    Idlewild's Roddy Woomble has made a surprisingly decent stab of his concurrent career as a born-again folkie. [May 2011, p.126]

    This collection of tracks lacks that vibrancy and spark needed to linger long in the memory. There are a few sunny moments here and there but ultimately it's disappointingly flat.
