    A highly assured debut. [Apr 2015, p.75]

    At times feels too regimented, leaving you wishing that he would just relax a little and drop the self-consciousness that gets carried along through the tracks.

    The overall sense is that for all its unhinged eclecticism, Control is the product of a fiendishly inventive mind. If he can find focus, he'll be a real force. [Apr 2015, p.99]

    While the form may feel familiar (think: a glitch-pop kissing cousin to Rufus Wainwright’s days as a balladeer, or a soft-shoe version of Patrick Wolf’s orchestral manoeuvres) a promising left-of-centre choice sets Fyfe apart from the pack of crooners.

    It's a good album, but you can't expect so much from it. All the songs have the same style and sound, there isn't nothing so different.It's a good album, but you can't expect so much from it. All the songs have the same style and sound, there isn't nothing so different. Besides that, some songs are very good, like Solace and Conversations, you will replay these ones for sure, they make me think that Fyfe has a great potential to show something better. Expand
