The second full album by this singer/songwriter guitarist comprises 10 self-penned songs of undeniable quality. The protest element of Gareth's writing is in your face in such songs as "Money Goes Round", "Asylum" and "On The Face Of It", a song declaring that in our world today white is becoming black and vice-versa. His spirituality is evident in songs such as "Infinity", reflecting on creation. Voice and guitar sound have a great feel and this album will have the enduring quality of the listener finding something new in the songs on repeated listen. Gareth has quality support from other musicians and in the crisp production. Backing vocal support includes Yvonne Lyon (formerly Yvonne Whitty of the group Land). Gareth has been touring constantly since he went fulltime and deserves to break through to public consciousness in as strong a way as Martyn Joseph.
