Charlie plays bass with Knifeworld (among others), and is an extremely talented individual. If you haven't heard the album, give it a listen - or two, or more. Sheer beauty!
This is lovely. Thank you for the tip Raff.

Agreed! Thanks, guys! Truly beautiful neo-classical/folk/world music. Reminds me of a toned down Steve Tibbetts.

Listening to it again now, lovely stuff, met him at the weekend at an NSRO gig, lovely guy.

Here, here, what a great album! We don't think he can sneak in Crossover (there is plenty of Oldfield in there) as too much world/jazz/folk going on?

It's a tough call this year between Roger Waters and Sparks for fave album for me, although Mike Oldfield's Return To Ommadawn was surprisingly good. I was sceptical about that one given that the original Ommadawn is one of my all-time favourite albums, practically sacred to me, but Oldfield delivered a very worth follow up in my book.

Best 2017 album I´ve heard is Lee Ranaldo´s Electric Trim. Really out of Sonic Youth´s style, more like Beatles updated into 2000. Pere Ubus new is also really good, so Boss Hog´s. Have liked also Roger´s, Procol Harums` and Hawkwinds` new albums. Of course Circle´s. Gilmour, Yes and the Who made also really good live records.

Oddly enough, this year I don't really have a definite #1 album as I generally do, in spite of the amount of great music released in 2017. If I had to choose, though, I'd go for Charlie Cawood's exquisite The Divine Abstract, which I warmly recommend to everyone.
