“Too much soul for robots”

published 15/01/2009

ProMelodical, beautiful lyrics

ConsMaybe a little too 'tame' for some!

Well, it's my 50th review, so I decided to mark the occasion by doing something a little different - my very first music review! Thanks to all those who have written quality reviews before, and given me ideas of how to proceed! I just hope I can do my chosen artist justice. I expect by now, at...

“Dream Catch Me When I Fall”

Cons-

Over the last few years I have found my musical tastes developing ever so slightly over time and it was my introduction to Elliott Smith that started leading me towards more chilled out artists. So by last summer when Newton Faulkner announced his arrival on the British music scene with the...

“Hand Made By A genius!!!!”

published 12/08/2007

ProExcellent voice, guitar playing and lyrics

ConsVery short album

What is this weird sound we keep hearing all over the music channels and the radio? Well this glorious sound is Newton Faulkner. Who? I hear you cry. Well Newton has come very far over the past few months. Born in 1985 making him a fresh 22 years of age, Newton first started playing the guitar...

Hand Built By Robots is Newton Faulkner's debut album. He smashed onto the commercial music scene in 2007 with his hit Dream Catch Me, and the album was just as successful. He is one of a breed of singer songwriters we have seen emerge over the past five years or so inculding James Blunt, James...

ConsThe odd filler track.

I first heard of him from someone on Myspace who constantly went on about how his album was amazing and he was such a great guitarist. I disregarded this and thought it was just another fad of hers until one day I checked on the music section and saw he was featured. Out of curiosity I clicked...

Probeautiful clever and spell binding

Consneed more!

Having heard Newton's song 'I need something' on radio 1's Jo Wiley's show several months ago, I immediatly went to his myspace page and listened to some of his tracks. I was instantly spell bound with his intricate guitar riffs and haunting melodies and so moved straight over to i tunes to try...

One of my favourite albums of the year, I got this one for christmas and I still listen to it. The vocals are very clear and beautiful, and having seen Newton Faulkner live recently, I can confirm that he is just as good live. Everyone will know the poppy Dream Catch Me from its chart success...

“PEOPLE SHOULD SMILE MORE”

published 26/03/2008

ProGUITAR GENIUS

ConsDREADLOCKS !!

What this man can't do with a guitar is not worth knowing! Who would ever have thought you could use a guitar as your drum kit? Having bought the album and playing it non stop in the car for 3 weeks I had to see him in concert and he didn't dissapoint. This man even admitted on stage he pushes...

“Amazing Music!”

published 21/10/2007

ProGreat, unique music!

Cons1 or 2 songs which have a boring and slow melody

I saw the Advert for Newton Faulkner's album on TV. Straightaway, I listened to some of the songs on the internet, and I was hooked. It has a very acoustic/folk/indie sense and is great calming music for any mood. In my opinion, the best songs are "Dream catch me", "to the light" and "Gone in the...

Consthe album has to come to an end

After hearing Newtons cover of 'Teardrop' on a T.V. advert I instantly fell in love with his mellow voice and that distinctive guitar playing. I went out and bought 'Hand Built By Robots' a couple of days later. After just hearing 'To the light' (the first track on the album), I couldn't waite to...

“I LOVE this album.”

published 30/10/2010

ProGreat feel good music

ConsA bit expensive on Itunes so try buying it on ebay

Newton Faulkers album 'Hand Built By Robots' is fantastic. I've got all of Newton's albums and I love his music. Its got a folky-acoustic style to it and it will literally brighten up your day. I've seen newton live a few times and he's an amazingly talented man writing all of his songs himself...
