Remarkable album by David. Pure and raw emotion comes through in this album. Every song is so very powerful and profound, so true and real, so breathtaking. 'Disappearing World', 'Ain't no Love' and 'Slow Motion' speak right to my soul every time I listen to them. I have found it hard to pick a favorite album over the years, especially when it comes to David Gray, because truly the man can do no wrong in my book. This album, however, seems so right to the heart of the matter and effects me on such a deep level that I would venture to say that this is my all time favorite DG album.

The opening bars of the first track, Alibi, reveal David's meteoric progress as both a songwriter and a singer. Alibi is his magnum opus and places him firmly in the company of the greats. Here are ten great songs from the heart of one of Britain's finest ever musicians.

I became a fan when introduced to his music three years ago. While most of my friends believe White Ladder is the best, this album is my favourite! Such good songs, so moving. His voice is throaty and yet somehow that makes it so absolutely beautiful. The title track is amazing; it will likely be my wedding song. "Ain't No Love" is also wonderful. It's so easy to listen to beginning to end. See him in concert!!

Life in Slow Motion is my favorite album of all time! It is one of the only albums that I can listen to from beginning to end, without skipping at track, and when it's finished, I'll go right back to the start and play it again. My personal highlights are Hospital Food and Lately. David's writing goes from strength to strength and his voice is heartbreakingly beautiful. For me, this is the definitive album. Oh, and saw David on Sunday night in Leeds, fantastic and love the new band! Rebecca
