EDITORS’ NOTES

With his debut, Young Pilgrim, Charlie Simpson proved he could thrive outside the shadow of his former bands: the punk-pop trio Busted and the alt-rock group Fightstar. On Long Road Home, he continues to refine his earthy brand of affecting indie folk. Simpson's guitar work is more assured here, as evidenced by the tidy plucked chords of songs like "Winter Hymns" and "Forty Thieves." Yet his knack for switching between introspective acoustic ballads and barnstorming anthems remains the singer's main appeal. "Comets" and "Haunted" both pack the ebullient punch of Mumford & Sons, with Simpson's plaintive vocals and gutbucket instrumentation causing quite the stir.

A TRUE MASTERPIECE

This album has to be one of the best albums I've ever heard. I really admire Charlie's ability to write such beautiful songs. There's not one song in the album that I don't like. I did not think "Long Road Home" would be as amazing as Charlie's first album "Young Pilgrim" but I was wrong. Both albums capture something special and they're both fantastic. I love this album so much and I would recommend this album to everyone. I wish Charlie had more of an American audience because a lot of people are missing out on a true talent. Thank you Charlie for making amazing records, can't wait for future albums.😊👏👏👏

I love this album! It's catchy and well rounded. It's got some soft and smooth and some that make you want to dance.
Well worth every penny!
