As the album unfolds, one is greeted by a succession of enthralling moments. ‘Verandas Gate’ exudes a subdued grandeur, while ‘Not In My Heart’ initially treads the familiar path of the singer-songwriter, only to veer off into the jangling realms reminiscent of R.E.M’s glory days, revealing depths beyond initial expectations. And then there’s the eponymous track, a delicate whisper in the ear, an intimate conversation with a trusted confidant in the late hours of the night—personal, relatable, and undeniably exquisite.
Nigel Brown’s compositions possess an uncanny familiarity as if you’ve known them for a lifetime. Yet, they remain unblemished by the passage of time, perpetually resonating with the present and destined to endure for years to come. This, my friends, is the very epitome of timeless music.
