Recorded in Nashville with some of the best players in the history of recorded music, lord knows what these veterans of Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick sessions felt about this nasal voiced Nottingham upstart. Still, Bugg is nothing if not ambitious and this latest soul influenced opus contains collaborations with Black Keys Dan Auerbach amongst others.

7/10 Customer review, 29th November 2017

You can't go on being an angry teenager forever, and Jake Bugg has mellowed but his songs still retain a melancholy, rather bleak tone. There are some lovely songs on Hearts That Strain. In The Event Of My Demise, Indigo Blue and the title track show a real musical depth and developing lyrical skill, I think; he has the ability to write words which do not quite make literal sense sometimes, but still illustrate something important. It is a sign that there's enduring and developing talent here.
