Nick Mulvey - First Mind

(Note from the Editor - Chris has asked me to put this blog together with his own words as he is without the interlink.  The review is his and it is great to see him back - Eddie).

First blog is a while and it is for the Mercury Music Prize.  I was given Nick Mulvey, an artist who I know little about apart from he was in Portico Quintet.

Due to ongoing issues, the review is going to be very brief:

This album is a very enjoyable album for what it is.  The best song is opening track which is also the title track, this song is brilliant.  Other good songs on the album include "Fever To The Form" and "April" which are two of the minimal ones without drums and such thing.

The album could do with being trimmed by 2 songs and 10 minutes which would be much more digestible. Not bad for an ex-Portico Quintet bloke. I would be interested in hearing more of his music when he releases further material.

I've knocked off 1 point because he isn't Alan Hull (singer from Lindisfarne for people that do not know who this is - Eddie), but added 1 point because that's not strictly his fault!

6.5 out of ten - Now I see where you were going, but not quite there
