A good album although it does lack some upbeat material,the single version of 'Babylon' is better than the one here likewise Marc Almond's version of'Say Hello' is a better upbeat version too though the're good tracks regardless,best tracks 'This Years Love','Please Forgive Me','Sail Away'.

Its a good solid album,lyrically very good. The only fault i would have with the album are that the songs are around the same tempo. My favourites are the first two songs along with sail away.

A lovely record. Still David Gray's best album, white ladder, is a beautiful album full of fantastic songs. Babylon, is off course excellent, one of the best singles of the late nineties, but there is plenty more on offer here. This year's love, is gorgeous, sail away, is a strong cut, and the cover of Soft Cell's, say hello, wave goodbye, is absolutely sublime, one of the best covers for years. Obviously heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, Gray also employs a modern sensibility that makes the record still sound great today. White ladder, is a great late night album, David Gray would never be this good again.

Love that this is the album of the day...I had to immediately put it on, as I'd all but forgotten about it.

Great collection of songs and he's also super entertaining live.

You get the feeling that David Gray had been through a messy breakup when he wrote this album. Very underrated album which doesn't have a weak song on it. Brilliant lyrics sung with his cutting voice. Even though this was his 4th album, he had to finance the recording himself and it was recorded in his living room which I think why this sounds so great compared to his albums that came later, which sound overproduced in places.

Never listened to the whole album but have heard a few tracks. Seems like it's criminally underrated. Babylon's a great song and may be one of the stand outs of the 90s. I think there's another song on here from a movie that I like a lot too. Forget which movie though. Have heard David Gray acoustically on the radio too, seems like a great live performer. A shame he hasn't been bigger in the US. Great voice.

When 'Babylon' cam bursting on to the airwaves in the year 2000 I was introduced to one of Englands best kept secrets....little did I know that the UK was really only discovering him as well. The singles are stand out, " Please Forgive me' & 'Sail Away'. There are no filler songs here every track has a prupose to play. This album is not for those that like their music hard, heavy or electronic, but if you like a ,melody and solid song writing you'll love this album...........
