The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. The Who. Crosby Stills Nash & Young. When I first heard the Dunwells, I heard bits and pieces of each of these. When a band takes a bit from each of these kings of Rock, how can they not also become kings?

This album is even better than what I heard at that first live performance. It has not left my car since I first inserted it. The anthems are very singable. The ballads make you feel the loves or the losses of these artists. The harmonies.... The harmonies remind me what what wowed us when we first heard Crosby Stills Nash & Young perform on the stage at Woodstock.

I can not recommend this album highly enough. And if you have a chance to see the Dunwells on their current tour, you will not regret doing so.

Just a fantastic album. Couple this with their newer EP and you will be listening over and over for days. I hadn't heard of them before I saw them on the Sun studios Sessions on TV. Take CSN, Mumford and Sons, AVett brothers and maybe Kings of Leon, mix them up and you might get a sound similar to The Dunwells. Really good harmonies.

I was quite surprised today to happen upon The Dunwells today. On principle, I never buy an album upon first hearing, especially from a group I've never heard of before; but today, I gladly violated my principle and quickly hit the purchase button. Their album, Blind Sighted Faith, is absolute guiltless ear candy. In solidarity with their website, I stand in agreement that they are "striking an exhilarating blend of English rock and American roots music". Like a good pot of Gumbo - where all those ingredients work effortless to flavor the batch, the Dunwells throw so much into their music. Sometimes I feel like I'm listening to the lyrical complexity of the Doors, the harmony of America and other anti-Viet Nam era groups of the early 70's, the driving guitar of old U2... but it all comes up uniquely Dunwells. There is conviction behind each word in every song. There's no fluff... just straight up substance, depth of talent, and mastery of craft that demands your attention.

Hailing from Leeds, UK, this band binds stirring, multi-part vocals with a brilliant guitar to provide a wonderful, sincere blend of modern rock/folk/pop.
Great album top to bottom. My favorite is "Hand that Feeds", which reminds of that great Athens, GA band Dream So Real. Those that like The Dunwells might
also check out the latest Bronze Radio Return CD, a band which offers similar pop/rock depth and originality.

Superb vocals with spine tingling five part harmonies and amazing guitar playing.
I particularly love 'Blind sighted faith' and 'Follow the Road' but 'Oh Lord', with the astonishing guitar riff has to be one of the best on the album. 'I Could be a King' is a song to make you smile. They're all top notch.
These guys are destined for the very top - they are all hugely talented.Blind Sighted Faith

I am in love with the sound of this band: they combine great harmonies (two brothers and two cousins make for a beautiful rich sound), topics that allow the listener to find themselves in the words, and driving melodies that move the songs along with anthemic force. I have seen them live several times and they are energetic, tight performers. Looking forward to the next album.

I heard the song "I Could be a King" on a local independent radio station and it was enough to make me look into the band. After listening to the :30 samples on Amazon, I was hooked. I must have played the album continuously at work for about a week. Each time hearing more layers in the music. "I Could be a King" and "Blind Sighted Faith" are definitely the most commercial songs on the album, but my favorites are Elizabeth and "Goodnight my City". "Oh Lord" is a haunting melody with a Pink Floyd-esque guitar solo. Even though I have had this album for a couple of months and have purchased many other albums, I keep coming back to this album. Other albums start to fade from the playlist after a few months, this one stays at the top.
The only thing better than this album is seeing them live. I saw them at a very small venue in San Diego. They were awesome. Not only is their music great, but they are very nice folk. I talked to them about music and their travels both before and after their show.
When people ask what their music is like I usually respond "A more modern version of American 70's rock". Buy the album, you won't be disappointed.

Can't... resist... pun: by Jove, this really is quite well done. There, got it out of my system. It's also a great relief to be able to write an unequivocally positive review. What a pleasure it is to listen to this record. Great singing, great songs.

There are lots of good descriptions of the music already, so I'll limit myself to a few points: 1. Notice how nobody doesn't like this music. There is an element of universality that extends beyond the fact that I would have never guessed this was a UK group if not so informed. 2. Dunno about the CSN or West coast comparisons, I don't hear that myself, but if it gets folks to listen, more power, etc. 3. Anytime you encounter the term pub rock, you might want to give it a listen. That means the musicians in question honed their chops night after night in a dark, dingy bar in front of noisy punters nursing multiple punts. As opposed to hunched over their laptop. So they developed musical rather than technological proficiency.

My only concern is that the review immediately prior to mine was posted a year and a half ago. This makes me nervous... I really hope that this group is still around, and more of this music is on the way.

(p.s. I've encountered some evidence that there are multiple versions of this album, some with more songs, some with remixes. I would like to know more.)
