Barclay James Harvest - North (2013)

Not really a full Barclay James Harvest album as John Lees is the only original member of the band featuring on this album. It is though regarded as a BJH album and it is the 20th BJH album.

This album is very far away from once was BJH at their finest. What we get here is vocals, guitars, keyboards, drums and bass. The music is standard rock. Music you can easily tour pubs and small assembly halls with. The music is very stripped down.

John Lees vocals are OK. The fifty-five minutes here is not particular full of adventures. There are some sampled symphonic orchestra bits here and there. Most of this is generic, standard rock. I find it difficult to dislike this as I find it difficult to write anything bad about John Lees. I really like BJH too. This album is not particular worthy of the BJH name and it is frankly pretty dull. It is nevertheless a decent album.
