Wow. Brilliant production and a genuine pleasure from start to finish. Ghost In My Heart was a great album but this is every bit as good and some. Buy it or miss out big time!Favorite track: Home Again.

Absolutely classic songwriting. Melodies to die for. Lyrics beautifully crafted. Don’t think just click, purchase.

Just writing to say how much I dig what you’re doing! It’s all there man….excellent! Wishing you every success!

“Cooler than cool.,Smoother than smooth.,Outrageous musicianship throughout.It can only mean the return of the incredible Mr Quint Starkie!

Quintessential is a beautifully crafted album
