8/10 according to Brett (Norman Records staff) on Thu 27 May, 2010
I think this is the first I've heard of Wovenhand although I've got a vague recollection of coming into contact with some 16 Horsepower stuff at some point in the dim and distant past and apparently this is the guy who used to be their singer. So there you go. All sorts of influences seem to be at work in the presentation of his intriguing American gothic style, from neo-folk to alt. country to folk rock to classic folky psychedelic rock.. Although it seems a misleading comparison in a lot of ways I'm a little reminded of the way Matt Elliott blends all sorts of interesting ideas, both old and new, in the creation of something which sounds quite uniquely out of time. The promo of this got chucked on the stereo a few weeks back and it didn't do a huge amount for me but sitting down and listening to it properly I've got to say that I'm pretty keen on it. This is undoubtedly a very strong album and I'll be investigating this guy's stuff a bit further the first chance I get.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
