Silent Spring

Michael A wonderfully relaxed guitar album, one of the best I've heard for years, in fact. Henry manages to create a very special atmosphere here with just a few instruments. In parts, it reminds me of XTC's folky "Mummer" phase, which is still one of my favourites, but you can hear a lot of influences from the 70's folk Scene here, too. Music for all seasons, not just for spring. Favorite track: False Guidance.

"Here we have a distillation of all that has gone before in the folk scene of the 1960s and 70s but not so much ‘made contemporary’ as given a lease of life that can help it strike out on its own." - Folk Radio UK
