reviews

  • "Why not give Optimism 1 - Experience 0" a spin to take your mind off the wet weather?" - Army of Id

  • "This is a really, really well put-together piece of music...a real skill for arranging instruments, it's so precise and really beautiful. Thanks for sharing..." - Pureambient Music
  • "Wonderful vocals, great pop/rock sound..." - Cathie Fredrickson
  • "Robin - a wistful tune, reminiscent (to me at least) of the best 70s pop - kind of Hall & Oates" - Ade Hodges. "Start your Bank Holiday Monday right, and listen to this great track..." - Colin Blake. NB - this track can be played and enjoyed any day of the year...
  • Do The Washing-Up (4-track demo) - "...a track that Squeeze would be proud of..." - Eddie Joyce

  • Designer Hangover - "...the voice! A genuine WTF moment! Eno gargling with razor blades! Thank you!" - Ade Hodges

  • "Oooh, I like "Braille For The Feet" in particular." - Empty Whale

  • "I think a whole lot of my powerpop/new wave/melodic rock friends will like a lot of Daniel Prendiville's tuneful, energetic and pleasingly quirky songs...What a brilliant collection of tunes...Brightening up my morning right now...(Daniel's) stuff really is brilliant. And I love the way (he) wander(s) in and out of different styles wthout losing (his) identity in the slightest...It sounds like the work of a clever multi-instrumentalist, and I mean that in a good way. It's because everything's played so perfectly in every song." - DC Cardwell

  • "Ego Where I Go is an amazing album, bought it straight away. Thanks for making it!" - Gert Wooldrik

  • How Long Have I Got, Doc?- "Great song!" - Mitch Friedman
  • Return To Sandra - "Check it out!" - Ray Carmen
  • Judy Obscure - "Love this." - Colin Kerr

  • "My favourite Daniel Prendiville download - if you like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Ash Ra Tempel, etc. you won't be disappointed although, typically for Danny Boy, it has a certain twist all of its own." - Ade Hodges
  • "Nice album" - Colin Blake
  • "The rhythm/background track on Unidentified European City (Frankfurt is my guess) is hypnotic. I would have listened to that on its own for the ten minutes. Very Tangerine Dream meets Ultravox -splendid!!!...God bless your slice of Kraftwerk on some of these tunes too...enjoyed the whole kit and kaboodle..." - Peter McCluskey

  • I Need New Friends - "Enjoyed this ... love the driving bass...great energy." - Robert Lloyd
  • Nervous Traffic- "Your track rocks from this great CD...great energy and changes. This is hot!" - Don Campau

  • “So many influences on this one : Eno, John Foxx, Ultravox, Kraftwerk and many more. Worth downloading for the "Wednesday" track alone - really good...” "This is such a brilliant piece......I remember playing it 3/4 times a few months back and it still gets a buzz to hear it again...." - Peter Mc Cluskey
  • "Nice job, Daniel - I particularly like Parallels and Wednesday" - Mare Lavelle

  • "Sounds good" - Edwyn Collins
  • "What an opener (Wednesday)!!! I love it...a little belter" - Hamstall Ridware
  • "Fantastic harmonies, lyrics, and production". - Mitch Friedman
  • "Listening to your album Hellhole on Bandcamp, and really digging it!...Nice work!" - David Gerard
  • "Hellhole..i.s Prendiville's most recent work. Wednesday is a song...that sweeps a listener away with the pleasant chime of a twelve-string acoustic guitar and hypnotic vocals. As for the rest of the album, it seems to follow a more ambient, pop/rock course with elaborate lyrics and creative arrangement..." - Wood Bangers
  • "Enjoying your record. Very cool and unique!" - Katey Laurel
  • "Great music!" - 8m/s
  • "Lush, sumptuous vocal work and a gorgeous, easy sway to the grove of Wednesday...that's such a beautifully layered and sparkling tune. Totally captivating!!!" - Mike White Presents

Katey Laurel - "All The Way Home (Gulag Remix)"

  • "Great sounds from a great Irish indie!!!" - Colin Scallan
  • Salt Lick City - "Another classic from Daniel. Strange but haunting piece of music. Well Worth a listen" - Colin Blake

  • " Wow...this is good music man, you've got a great voice and that track (Me & The Fly) is pure rock'n'roll..."  - Johnny Malloy
  • "Excellent insectedness!" - Mitch Friedman
  • " Quite eclectic stuff.  Electronica with killer beats beside dark ambient. On the first track (Me & The Fly), some vocal lines remind me of Philip Oakey. The second track (Never Had It To Lose It) is a groove masterpiece" -   Lucas Biela
  • Me & The Fly - "Nice tune...but back in 1978 - Wire - I Am The Fly - yes, sirs?" - Edwyn Collins

  • "This gets into PiL and Wire Territory which is very fine territory indeed" - Peter Fitzpatrick
  •  "Anyone who can produce a track like You Have My heart Scalded is cool by me. Not generally my genre of music, but I respect where you're coming from and the serious creativity involved in this work ." -  Chris Lewis
  • "This release...is a little bit out of (the) usual listening we have on Unexplained Sounds Group. It's closer to oblique pop music, no-wave, post-ambient rock. So, why is it here? Well, simply because it's one of (the) most intelligent works of pop contamination and crossover I (have) listened to... Elegant, fresh, original, highly recommended. ****" - Unexplained Sounds
