In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

The Devon-based country diviner, assisted by longtime guitarist James Walbourne, picks through 10 selections from 1999’s career high-point Normal For Bridgewater and 2002’s lovely Ends Of The Earth, while dusting off 1996 debut album Cannibal for a run at “I Want You”. Easy-going, slung-in-a-hammock country-pop made sweeter by the New Zealander’s natural airiness (“Here Comes The Swells” is the greatest song Joe Pernice never wrote), its unplugged format tends to bleed things into one comfy whole, sometimes softening Bruntnell’s darker lyrical corners. However gentle, though, quality craftmanship shines through.
