Reviews for Hunter Muskett albums

  • underground gem.’ Jan Zarebs, Record Collector Magazine
  • ‘  masterly skirts the boundaries of baroque pop and folk-rock’  Rolling Stone

That Was Then This Is Now (Limefield 2013)

  • ‘…unpretentious, classy…much better than it has any right to be. If Bill Leader does nothing more in the world of recording, ‘That Was Then, This Is Now’ will have been a glorious way to bow out.’ Colin Harper (biographer of Bert Jansch).. The Afterword
  •  ‘…one band that doesn’t have to stand on past glories’  Record Collector Magazine  
  • ‘…sunny and grin-inducing..’ fRoots

Unafraid and Sober (SPC 2017

  • ‘A lovely album full of great song-writing, lush vocal harmonies and superb musicianship...remarkable that a band can get together after forty years and produce an album which sounds so fresh and relevant to today.’ Peter Cowley FATEA (April 2017)
  • ‘...distinctive features are the guitar interplay, beautiful harmonies, and thoughtful songs of retrospection.’ 4 stars  Colin Bailey, RnR Magazine (March/April 2018
