Five years is an extensive sabbatical for renowned blues singer/songwriter Bryn Haworth. The much loved blues influences are still clearly there on the title track opener with the opening line stating, "I'm standing on the platform, waiting for a train." The execution of Bryn's acoustic on Blind Willie Johnson's "Nobody's Fault But Mine" is faultless while elsewhere the combination of mandolin and slide is extremely satisfying. The sturdiest item is "Inside Out" with the simple, powerful lyric, "I've been changed from the inside out" and a classic Hammond organ line played by Mark Edwards reinforcing the chorus. A foray into reggae, "God Is My Strength" displays Bryn's depth of songwriting. One of the instrumental tracks "Up On The Downs", has a gentle shuffle backbeat while a complete re-working of the Christmas evergreen "Once In Royal David's City" features another guitar maestro, Phil Keaggy.
