Richard Ashcroft
Keys to the World
Parlophone

"Rarely has he sung this well: His voice is aging beautifully, the bellow of youth now completely absent." (Q)

"His sabbatical has ... done nothing to dampen Ashcroft's passion for stating the abundantly obvious in an anguished voice that implies he's exclusively revealing the arcane mysteries of the universe. His philosophy remains more cab driver than Kierkegaard." (The Guardian)

"Here he reflects on the state of the world, love and music (nothing too ambitious), wrapping it up in muscular grooves, Southern soul shadings and astutely placed strings." (Mojo)

"An evening with one of his albums is a little bit like being 9 and winning the chance to have dinner with your hero. The entire enterprise is pointless if you don't already believe they are amazing." (The Times of London)
