Beautiful Scarlet
4 stars This is a great album, lovely vocals, keyboard, bass, percussion and all around wonderful vibe.

One thing that I dislike about this album is the track "Son Of There's No Place?" which starts off well but descends into an instrumental I find quiet dull.

Another gripe of mine is the insufficient usage of Richard Sinclair's voice. Aside from singing some of the opening/closing bits of the album his words are unused for a large portion of the albums middle. Since this album is one song, the uneven distribution of what for me is one of Hatfield & The North's best parts brings down the albums middle, resulting in an album that shies away from 5/5.

Overall this is a great album, though I recommend the follow up over this one. Canterbury Sound Score 5/5

Beautiful Scarlet | 4/5 |
