    Time of Dust is bleaker than his past work, marrying a dark heart with epic hooks and choruses like a darker Elbow.

    A gorgeous noirish set of cinematic songs with a bittersweet emotional core.

    Ed’s voice is at its finest--effortless and addictive. It makes you want to listen to this gem all over again.

    Balanced by bitter barbs at modern snivellers and shysters in Time of Dust itself, the result is a compact but concentrated dose of poison.

    It doesn’t quite hang together in the way that an official Harcourt album does, acting instead as a kind of taster for things to come. Yet as aperitifs go, it’s pretty satisfying.
