David Gray – Mutineers (Good Soldier Songs)

Gray’s tenth studio release is typically introspective and harmonically rich, often orchestral in conception.  The lush, atmospheric production that has characterized his music since 1998’s hugely successful White Ladder is further in evidence here.  A number of these appealingly begin in stillness and add percussion further along.  The strongest tracks for me are 10 and 2.  Try also numbers 1 (the first single off the album), 5, and 11.
