ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some comments on the album Nowhere To Somewhere by Vic Cracknell:
"Vic's influences could best be described as "the modern classics". He credits the likes of Paul Simon, The Beatles and Bob Dylan and all three are evident in Vic's songwriting. Each track is well crafted and easily accessible. Songs like Life's Better (When The Sun Shines) are very light and breezy but he also manages to include songs on more focussed serious subjects. Six Stops On The Tube for instance recalls his trips into London for his (thankfully) successful cancer treatment.

Never Again also stands out in this respect: an ode to those who served in The First World War. Vic marks out Harry Patch (the last Tommy), Henry Allingham and his own grandfather Fred Ross, noting how they "stepped up to the plate" and were "just boys". He brings to life the horror of war with a personal touch."
Surrey Advertiser Review

"Snap, Cracknell and Pop"

“Vic Cracknell is a bit of a gem. Thanks to him and his “open mic” nights, up and coming musicians in the local area can have a go at performing in front of a live audience. He also performs locally himself – if there is a local music festival you can be pretty sure Vic will be behind the mic at some point.
And now he has brought out an album Nowhere To Somewhere. This is a friendly accessible, and (for the most part) happy album which is firmly inthe Easy Listening category. There are upbeat numbers like Six Stops On The Tube which reminds us to stop rushing so much; quieter reflective ones – Quiet Contemplation, A Time For Us To Love; every-day (and slightly banal) ones such as It’s A Song; and a poignant reminder of the personal tragedy of war in Never Again which remembered Vic’s own grandfather. The whole album has a warm personal feel and a sense that Vic is a man who enjoys what he is doing. And as the best track on the album says Life’s Better When The Sun Shines.”

Farnham Herald Album Review - 18th June 2010


"Lovely, gentle, and subtle....the mix is very sophisticated, It's a Song is possibly my favourite for just being so jolly lovely and beautifully written. The sentiment throughout the whole album is really heartwarming. WELL DONE VIC!
**Everyone... go buy this album"
Julia K.

"Got up early to listen to the new 'Vic Cracknell' album, Excellent it is too. The stand out track for me would be 'Never Again'. The way it builds from solo piano into marching drums and trumpet is quite moving...."
Mark Buck

"Brilliant album! Great production and amazing songs! I really enjoyed listening to it this afternoon... thanks for the music!"

David Durant - Brooklands FM

No album collection should be without this album
Vic Cracknell is a talented and very versatile musician and this is very evident in his brand new album, where every track is different and indeed as good as the last one. Take for instance 'Six Stops On The Tube', an incredibly catchy and infectious uptempo number guaranteed to get those toes and fingers tapping and a great driving tune! Another great toe-tapping tune is 'Do It Today', a very strong and melodic song which would not be out of place in the top ten chart. By contrast, take "A Time For Us To Love' a slow and memorable song with meaningful lyrics and a very anthemic feel.

'Nowhere To Somewhere' by Vic Cracknell is one of those rare albums where every track is likeable and a demonstration of this talented musician's songcraft, not forgetting the excellent contributions from some of Vic's musical friends which add different elements of quality to this already outstanding collection of songs.

Great album
Fantastic collection of heart-warming, positive songs, full of subtle nuances and something for everyone - songs to drive to in the summer's sun, ballads to cuddle up to, blues, soul, pop, dancy songs and songs to chill out to. And ALL of them are so catchy you'll be singing them all in no time! :)
