Album Review

As if in response to the hard edge of Speedboats for Breakfast, James Reyne assembled some of his best catalog selections for acoustic reworkings on And the Horse You Rode in On. The songs are produced in such a way as to spotlight his inimitable voice. Most of the songs are done strictly acoustically — with just Reyne and a guitar — though some are given different arrangements ("One More River" has been given an almost reggae beat, while "Any Day Above Ground" has an ironically funereal dirge about it). There are a couple of new tracks ("The Euphonious Whale," "How to Make Gravy") and a smattering of reworked hits ("Hammerhead," "Reckless," "Errol") reaching back to Reyne's days with Australian Crawl. This fascinating reimagining of a fantastic catalog of songs nicely reconnects with an artist who had entered the new century with the aggressiveness of Speedboats for Breakfast. Not your typical hits record, And the Horse You Rode in On is all the more entertaining for it. Reyne would release a second volume of acoustic reworkings with Ghost Ships two years later.

Customer Reviews

A Classic

except for "mr froggy" and the "whale" track this album is a ripper! Reno is a stand out with the rest of the album being powerful versions of the originals. Acoustic Reyne is better than the real thing as sometimes you can understand what he is saying!!!!!

Full of highlights

This is a great addition to any previous Australian Crawl/James Reyne collections. Perfect Summer music! One More River is a personal favourite as well as Hammerhead... but nothing beats the feel of Oh No Not You Again. If this is an introduction to James' works then I highly recommend you go and purchase his other stuff - I have a mood for the acoustic and a mood for the plugged. Just awesome!!

Following the demise of the seminal Australian Crawl, lead singer James Reyne continued to chart the musical path he initiated in the last stages of his former band's career. It was through leaving his homeland that the Melbourne native found the inspirations for his debut disc. After two years of touring the world, Reyne began his solo work in London, sculpting out a sound indebted to the Crawl but with a depth, scope, and edge uniquely his own. The resultant cinematic James Reyne, released in Australia...
