A brilliant album from Richard Hawley. Standing at the sky's edge, was a pleasant surprise upon release. It sees Hawley embracing a psychedelic sound, full of drony guitar rock. It was totally unexpected and is a brilliant record showing us how capable Hawley is making superb leftfield turns. Standouts include, she brings the sunlight, down in the woods, and, don't stare at the sun. Great record.

Richard turn up the volume of the guitar amps. Loud and psycadelic as a 70's Neil Young album.

This is 60s-inspired psychadelic rock with a bit of Eastern flair mixed in. It feels like the sort of record Kula Shaker might have made if Crispian Mills had dialed back the mysticism a bit and focused on writing hooks.

There's great vocals to cheer about here if that's what you want. Lots of genre variety and it is all performed with excellence. The album is a throwback to the 70s and probably won't appeal to hipsters. If you appreciate good guitar playing and great vocals you can't help but enjoy this listen. I give the album 4 stars.
