Positive: 2 out of 5. Mixed: 3 out of 5. Negative: 0 out of 5. All this publication's reviews Read full review. The Line of Best Fit. Eerily pretty if a little ponderous. All this publication's reviews. Q Magazine. His stentorian baritone adds emotional depth and there's a world-weary rue to the lyrics. This brings us to our final, and arguably most important, defining factor of the album. Matthew Hegarty himself.
I've said it before in our song features, but the guy has a very strong vocal identity. If you cut out everything else, all the instrumentation and production, just one guy and a guitar, all these songs would still hold up purely on the vocal performance. On album closer "Another Way", Communion label mate Matt Corby has been enlisted to provide some breathtaking falsetto vocals that entwine perfectly with Hegarty's earthy tone.
This album, to me, is an incredible feat. Something that Matt Hegarty can be infinitely proud of. The only real problem he faces is topping Other Rivers with the next album. This is an absolute must listen for anybody with even a passing interest in honest, emotive and sincere music.
Acoustic Folk Indie. I can also answer that in two words. Hell yes. Matthew and the Atlas Out of the Darkness. Out of the Darkness - Matthew and the Atlas Matthew and the Atlas Another Way. Another Way - Matthew and the Atlas
