    In the album’s 40 minutes, there is scarcely any flab. Twenty years into his solo career, Hawley certainly isn’t tearing up the blueprint, but within the boundaries of his domain, nobody does it better.

    You can take the boy out of the working man's club but yo can;t take the working man's club out of the boy. [Summer 2019, p.111]

    Further may not take Hawley anywhere new, but it succeeds in drawing you back into his world. Not a bad place to be.

    In trying to make an album that pointed to where he wants to go as an artist, Hawley has taken the best parts of his past and uploaded them onto one sublime record. [Jul 2019, p.90]

    The songs effortlessly speak to all classes, to all walks of life, from a songwriter who never sings down to his audience. As always, Richard Hawley is one of us.

    Mixing a sophisticated amalgam of melody, sound, and poetic lyrics, Hawley's artistry lies in his ability to communicate a deeper vulnerability that openly engages hard questions about identity, and the often overlooked yet profound benefits of romantic love.

    If there are no huge surprises here, Further offers a punchy synthesis of country croon, psych-rock riffs and snappy songwriting that proves South Yorkshire’s stoic son has plenty of miles left to run.

    Another fantastic album from Richard Hawley. Sparse at times but he gets his message across with some wonderful songs. Emilina says andAnother fantastic album from Richard Hawley.
