CD Reviews

Excellent release!
Simone Oltolina | Morbio Inferiore, TI Switzerland | 03/04/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ed Harcourt is a masterful singer/songwriter who recorded this 6-tracks mini album in his home studio. On Maplewood he's crafted little, precious songs that are definitely woth a listen. As Amazon.co.uk states, you'll hear echoes of Tom Waits, Bono (the first time I listened to "Apple of my eye" I almost mistook the singer's voice for Bono's) and spaghetti western. The first songs reminds me of The Blue Nile but it's probably just a feel... Whatelse can I say? I wish it was a bit longer, after all he claims to have written hundreds of songs already."
What a Sleeper
Junglies | Morrisville, NC United States | 03/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ed harcourt, the multi-instrumentalist versatile singer-songwriter from England has a great mini-album here but is somewhat of a sleeper.This music is one which grows upon you. It requires, almost insists that you listen to it carefully with heart and soul. Let it whirl around your consciousness and permeate your gray cells. Listen to it with friends, in the car, in the early hours, with a loved one.Ed Harcourt inevitably draws comparisons with others but I do not think it will be all that long before many others are measured against his standard. This recording is merely a beginning for what I believe will be a long and productive career.See for yourself. Try it..you'll like it.Great album."

"Everyone in the world who has had not such a great day should put on "Apple of my eye." They'll be a happy chappy in no time. Buy the cd now. (He's also cracking live)"
