Critical acclaim for “Queen Of Denmark”…

 

“A work of transcendent wonder… Grant confronts romantic loss with astonishing depth of feeling… brutally funny… gorgeously bleak… truly beautiful”

The Independent On Sunday – 5 stars *****

 

“Queen Of Denmark takes John’s accomplishments to a new level… without question one of the year’s best albums”

“Grant on top form… Wry tales of personal redemption are backed by Midlake’s 70s soft-rock, tuned to its most dreamy”

NME – 8/10

 

“an album of strength and beauty… Grant’s vocals float over backing from Midlake at their most dreamy and lush”

“a colossus… these are songs with an air of vastness and contemplation recalling Dennis Wilson’s masterpiece, Pacific Ocean Blue… Grant is a man whose time has come”

The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

 

“Grant is Karen Carpenter to Midlake’s Supertramp: a painfully honest writer, able to render discomfiture in songs with the sweetness of nursery rhymes”

Uncut – 4 Stars ****

“A near-perfect marriage of Grant’s warm baritone with Midlake’s lush woodwind and keyboard textures”

The Independent – 4 stars ****

“a brilliant mixture of anger, confession, humour, melody and astonishing vocals… An extraordinary album”

WORD

“A masterpiece of soft, 70s melodies and sadness… Terrific.”

The Observer

“a daring record: Seventies-sounding ballads full of lush wistfulness and unexpected humour”

Esquire

“The Czars’ John Grant returns with a ravaged confessional honey of an album… Intoxicating.”
