    With mystique to spare, it's a record to cherish.
  2. There's No Leaving Now is one of the best albums of the year.

    It's a different beast compared to his earlier work and admittedly, even I wasn't too keen on it to begin with. But having stuck with it, it soon had its talons in me and I can confidently proclaim it to be Kristian's best release yet.

    It's unlike anything you've ever heard before. This man just cannot be from this world.

    I absolutely love this record. His use of open tuning produces some stunning guitar work. Any of these songs put in the hands of a big producer and a backup band could be pop masterpieces. Listen to this. Trust me. Full Review »

    Always, when the artist puts of the disc at the start of his best works there is a good reason to fear that the rest of the material simply not cope with quality. Fortunately, "Theres No Leaving Now"although largely acoustic only holds a very high level - mainly through catchy and diverse guitar melodies and distinctive, a bit cheeky vocals, which is evident even in compositions such as "Leading Me Now" or "Criminals".
