'Many of you, although not yet enough, already know Trevor Jones in his incarnation as Miracle Mile, easily Britain's most singer-songwriterly duo. Occasionally he releases a solo album, but how these differ from Miracle Mile albums is hard to define. Analytically, it's probably that a Jones album is more minimal, less complex, than a Miracle Mile album, and that the balance between the contributions of Jones and his multi-instrumentalist partner Marcus Cliffe is skewed more towards Jones. This is another corker with gorgeous ambient touches: the distant police sirens in 'Books to Bed', the steel guitar that morphs into an angelic choir on the short, sweet, 'Man Behind the Moon'. Possibly his best yet, 'til the next one.' Album of the Month - HiFi News
'Jones - Trevor Jones, one half of the mighty Miracle Mile - is both a deft lyricist and composer with a beguiling ability to find a commonality in his personal situations and to then couch it in both words and tunes that, to borrow his title get right ‘to the bone'. And if that suggests a mood of reflection throughout the record, it's spot on. Jones addresses friendships, relationships and the fragility of life itself within these fourteen songs often provoking a strong emotional / cerebral response with a phrase or observational angle that hits home in the listener. Indeed a damp eye has almost become a hallmark response to new works from the man.' Steve Morris, Roots And Branches
'Trevor Jones finds the poetry in real life; gently beautiful and genuinely moving. You may cry.' The Sunday Times
'Genuinely life enhancing and life changing.' Americana UK
'Big on memorable tunes wrapped around honest-to-goodness emotionally involving lyrics.' HiFi News
'Exquisite beauty, aching romanticism, you find your eyes filling.' Roots and Branches
Trevor Jones had this to say about the album: 'Usually my songs stand as resolutions. The daily dramas poured into my writing; the joys and the sorrows, the love and the longing; always ends up in a song. These still sit a little unsteadily so I'm unsure of their worth. A reticent recommendation I know but... if I've learnt anything from the recent months, it's to wear your life loosely; it fits better that way. Mine's still a tight fit, though a little baggy around the knees. You're only as good as your knees...'
