    One of the most rewarding albums he has made in recent years.

    With little in the way of instrumentation and production tricks there's a rich atmosphere of intimacy running through the album and it's difficult not to take a shine to this no-nonsense approach.

    At times The Ship's Piano seems like one long love letter... laced with sentiment and heartfelt thanks for life's greatest gift. [Nov 2011, p. 135]

    An intimate, home-recorded piece that feels like a private performance.[Nov 2011, p. 95]
