Editorial Reviews

Ben Watt, former co-leader of Everything But The Girl, respected DJ, and label head of Buzzin'Fly Records, returns to recording with his first solo album in over 25 years. Described by Watt as 'simply a folk-rock record in an electronic age,' Hendra continues Watt's groundbreaking work in a genre he helped pioneer with his partner Tracey Thorn in Eveything But the Girl through the 80s and 90s. Album features guest appearances from key artists including Bernard Butler, Ewan Pearson, and David Gilmour.

If you are a fan of Ben Watt's DJ production sound I'm not sure this will be up your alley. I've given this disc a few listens through and I have a completely different appreciation for it versus his DJ sound. It's nice to know that Ben does more than just produce music. To hear him play guitar and sing is actually quite refreshing. This CD showcases his song writing ability in more ways than one. The guest musicians also enhance the experience of listening to the disc. If you are looking for Ben's Buzz N'Fly and/or Lazy Dog sounds these are not it. The CD has a very low key feel to it. The songs are a bit mellow but not lacking substance. I envision sitting around a fire drinking a couple beers while listening to this album. It's not bad....but it's not stellar (imho). I feel its only three stars for my current musical interpretive state. This album would probably go very well with Fall and cooler temperatures.

On the surface, this album seems to shimmer, but it's real power lies in the tension between the surface and the undercurrent. The lyrics are some of the best I have heard (or read) in many years ... powerful insights into memory and loss, tempered with a tough but compassionate edge. There is no sentimentality here. And if Watt's direct address in poetic and unadorned, Bernard Butler adds the perfect counter - growling his way through the album with a lead guitarist's urge to unsettle and distort, emphasising the grit in the words. The cameo from David Gilmour is also wonderful. The overall result is subtle and rewarding. Great album.

Beautifully written, gently orchestrated, I've been wrapped in these songs for days and am too comfortable to move. It is subdued and sublime, warm and pensive; I can say little about this album except that it feels right as rain.

By Sam Hall on February 25, 2015
Format: Vinyl
It's painful to write a so-so (almost negative) review for a person that I have admired for so long. I've liked almost everything he has done - both EBTG and his DJ and solo work (in fact, North Marine Drive is one of my all-time favorite albums.) I was waiting to get this album for a long time because the vinyl was backordered and I am only buying vinyl since last year. It finally arrived and I am rather disappointed in both the actual record as well as the music.

THE RECORD: The album jacket is really beautiful, It is a gatefold that has a cool die-cut window revealing the graphics on the inner sleeve. It also includes a cool poster. The printing quality is really nice too. There are two big problems, however - the inner jacket is too small for the record. I could not get the record out. I finally got some cotton gloves so I could grab a hold of the thing and force it out. When I got the vinyl out I saw it was absolutely filthy, like amazingly so. There was crap all over both chunks of white debris of some kind as well as big smears across the surface (could it be from the records being forced into the small sleeves at the factory?) I almost just sent it back but what a hassle that would be and I already waited so long so I decided to clean it but it took a while. This is a BRAND NEW record! It seems that all the stuff was superficial because with some effort the vinyl cleaned up OK but it will never go back into the inner sleeve again (I use anti-static sleeves anyway.) The album is pressed in the Czech Republic as a lot of new vinyl seems to be but I have NEVER seen a new album that was so filthy. Weird. I wish I had taken photos before I cleaned it...

THE MUSIC: I really want to like this album but I don't.

Love Ben. Love the more mellow Ben. Love EBTG. Would probably buy anything by either of them.
