Pretty good here...perfectly flat and silent wax.
Sound also well mixed, albeit just a tad flat...but the vocals still shine through.
Great experience all in all...of this doesn’t give you goosebumps, you’re dead.

Really good punch to this record and very quiet pressing in my opinion.

Pick! Excellent record from a rising Birmingham talent. Paul Janeway is the answer to the corners of the music world that find their singers restrained. The devout background Janeway experienced growing up can be felt in his delivery which makes the record sound at times like a big-tent revival.

The Otis Redding influence is strong throughout, and in the best possible way. As a fan that listened to absolutely nothing but Otis for several years, I am not at all turned off by this expansion of the soul sound, which sounds nothing like Redding, and is similar only in approach.

Fans of this could look to Redding protege James Govan, the Capsoul and Prix labels of the seventies to explore other under-appreciated but essential soul documents.

The band is currently on tour, and well worth traveling to see.
