‘Stripped-down folk aesthetic couldn’t be more contemporary. What’s new is the worldview, and that is what gives Hendra its stark power.These are beautiful songs penned from mid-life.’ 8/10, Uncut

‘Folk-rock with menaces. Hendra might deal with life’s compromises but there’s no disappointment here.’ ★★★★ Mojo

‘Mature reflections on memory and loss, humour and hope.’ ★★★★ Q

‘His belated return to where he started oozes class, perhaps because his oeuvre has always existed outside fashion. The gentle mesh of flowing melody, woven instrumentation and mood of hard-earned contemplation adds up to something quite profound.’ ★★★★ Telegraph
