    Chance-taking, richly rewarding. [Apr 2019, p.89]

    Warm and enveloping, it offers immediate comfort, easing the listener into a world so textured and reassuring it invites the kind of revisits that will let the songs unlock their internal logic at their own speed.

    After years of playing to fanbase expectations, Gray has reinvented not only himself but raised the bar for folktronica. [May 2019, p.112]

    Even with all the experimentation, this remains a recognizable David Gray album with subdued melodies, unforced vocals, subtle acoustics and honest lyrics even in their more obtuse state.

    Some songs just feel like they didn't develop as naturally as others. Some, such as "It's Late", feel in need of a few more sonic components to round out what the song is attempting to do. But there's an upside to moments like these as they show that nearly 30 years into his career, with a double-digit studio album count, David Gray is still exploring.

    Atmospheric and evocative, Gold In A Brass Age is as easy an entry point to Gray as it a continuation of an impressive career for already-established fan. It’s an album that demands a listen in full, rather than piecemeal or on shuffle, allowing the whole mood to permeate.
