CD Review: David Gray - Founding

IT’S a long time since White Ladder propelled David Gray to multi-platinum international star. And although that stardom has waned since then, there has been no dip in the quality on offer.

IT’S a long time since White Ladder propelled David Gray to multi-platinum international star. And although that stardom has waned since then, there has been no dip in the quality on offer. Ever-finicky pop fashion may have moved on, but there’s something so powerful about Gray’s heartfelt vocals that even non-fans would have to recognise the man’s art.

More introspective than his last set, Gray’s ninth is all good stuff, form the catchy Only the Wine to the album highlight Forgetting with its intimate half-whispered vocals. It is when you hear that utterly distinctive catch in the voice on The Old Chair you are reminded that he is a class act.
