Here I Stand
The British roots pioneers release a powerful new album, blending a diversity of sounds and subjects into a triumphant whole, full of songs with impossibly alluring choruses and beauteous melodies. Repeated listening required.
Like all Oysterband music, this record is built on integrity, passion and human emotion, with songs that make you want to dance / scream / cry / jump for joy / (fill in the blank).
Here I Stand was produced by Alaric Neville and Oysterband.
- "...their instinctive feel for irresistible choruses is undiminished and their often wry assessment of dark encounters in mysterious lands forms a colourful tableau of the events that have brought them here, and contributed to another admirable collection of high class songs." -- Mojo
- "More knowing than Chumbawamba, less crusty then the Levellers, and easier to dance to than either." -- Maxim (UK)
- "...a powerful manifestation of roots rock" -- TOP magazine
- "their surprisingly emotional reference points are Tindersticks, The Beautiful South and R.E.M." -- Phil Sutcliff, Q Magazine
- "...the strongest I have heard in a quite some time. Merging traditional folk music topics and instrumentation, with modern rock sensibilities, Oysterband creates a lively album that the listener can't help but dance to." -- Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange (read the complete review)
- "...one of those albums that doesn't give up all its secrets in the first few listenings...On the other hand, albums like that tend to have more 'staying power' in my CD player." -- Debbie Skolnik, Green Man Review (read the complete review)
