Album of the month – February 2017

Two months into the year and a theme is emerging – the averageness of so many albums. A lot are scoring 50 because they’re not moving me at all – either to love or hate. It’s not a good sign! If you’re not making me feel then what are you doing?

Fred Thomas’ Changer is a curious blend of styles. I had to check to make sure it was the same record on more than one occasion. He’s hard to pin down! Voyager by Fleece is a lovely psychedelic affair, with McCartney-esque pop sensibilities throughout, while Nadia Rose’s Highly Flammable is an enjoyable release with glorious wordplay.

Fingers crossed for March…
