A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in.

Label: Virgin EMI
Released: 20th January 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Loyle Carner is a man of many talents. Quite why you’d bother with making music if you were able to cook up a storm is beyond any sensible, hungry person, but nobody is going to hold that against him - such is the quality of his debut album.

Home-grown, mixing spoken word and domesticated rap - there’s none of the grandiose, overblown largesse of Carner’s cross pond peers. That’s ‘Yesterday’s Gone’’s biggest strength. A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in. Christopher Jones
