Top 100 Music Reviewer

My first encounter with david ford was in 2007, he was the support act at hammersmith apollo to rod y gab (great night)... It seemed no one had heard of him and there had been no hype or chance for me to find who he was or what he was...

The suprise was well worth it...

He had however many thousand people fit into hammersmith silent and hanging on to his every word before errupting in applause as he finished each heart wrenching song,

This cd is the second installment of davids. A blend of acoustic meets alternative meets indie meets pop. He truley has mastered the art of songwriting, though in my opinion the cd can never live up to his live performances, especially of songs like "go to hell"

The music is true heart on your sleeve material, songs packed with sorrys and goodbyes, heartache, lose, misery and guilt... Yet you find yourself relating so much and so often you almost feel you could have written the lyrics at times.

The stand out songs on this record for me are "songs for the road" "i'm alright now" and "decimate" which to my ears has a close resemblance to the cure - close to me, but thats not to say they are the best, each song has a different feel.

David ford has been compared to some to be like david grey or damien rice or james blunt, and yes he can easily slide into a compilation record among artist like that, but he is so much more...

The cd is worth £10 i paid that after the gig when i saw him, along with many hundreds more, and though it blows you away each and every time, it doesn't hold a candle to seeing him live!


 quite simply sensational

For those of us eagerly awaiting the third album there is nothing that needs be said about David Ford. For those of you who have not yet discovered him - get on with it and find out just what a great singer, songwriter, poet he is. I have seen him play live three times this year and about 7 in total and can't recommend that experience highly enough. The CDs are simply a great reminder of the songs until you can get to the next gig....

 A Fantastic moody CD

One of the best new solo male artists by far, forget all the others this guy really is the one. His own numbers are fantastic and his covers are as good as the originals and far better than other cover versions.
If you buy one cd this year buy this one.

 You MUST listen to this...

What a great artist. He should be the star of the future but first we'll have to get those useless radio stations to stop playing Rihanna and whack on some David Ford! It hardly breaks the bank to purchase this album and I promise you it is a worthy investment - once you start listening you will not stop! I have seen him live twice now (slighlty sad, I know!) and hope to see him again soon.

 Amazing Artist

This is an amazing album. If you like guitar music, this album is for you. Think Damien Rice but better. This guy is a fantastic live artist and this translates over to the recorded stuff. The cover of 'There is a Light' is inspired. Best album of the year by far! Highly recommended!
