- The Broken Man by Matt Elliott
9/10 Phil Staff review, 15 February 2012
Woo! The angry man (the musical version of the Hulk) is back with a brand new opus on his new seemingly permanent home Ici D'Ailleurs.
If you found his 'Songs' trilogy maudlin you ain't heard nothing yet. This collection of seven tracks is amongst his most sombre work yet. It's absolutely beautiful though at the same time which is a remarkable feat. It sounds like he's been hanging around Spain a lot as there's plenty of Spanish flamenco guitar in there, but you can hear folk from all over Europe in there. The opener 'Oh How We Fell' is an amalgamation of all I've said already. Beautiful yet maudlin...it's the right side of depressing as well. Some records make you want to hack your own head off but this album has a beauty about it which is unrivalled. Despite all of this beauty 'The Broken Man' is a dark and haunting beast which will take you on a journey around Parisian bars, Spanish flamenco bars, bars full of drunk people and you're the drunkest person in there lamenting on how your life has collapsed all around you. Seems like only yesterday eh! Listening to Matt singing 'This Is How It Feels To be Alone' throughout 'Dust Flesh & Bones' is a sobering listen and it's one that will haunt you. This is truly moving and spiritual music sung and played from the heart and it's an album that you will play over and over again.

'Some records make you want to hack your own head off but this album has a beauty about it which is unrivalled' this should be plastered on the side of a building somewhere, or maybe just a bus stop in Syria
