Music like that made by P.G. Naylor is never going to go out of fashion. Why? Because solid, melodic, infectious, unfussy, guitar pop (albeit with a rock swagger) never goes out of fashion. As Better Left Unsaid motors through to its logical conclusion, you yearn for a time when songs, and the artists behind them, just got on with the job – no fuss, no courting controversy, no mass ranks of co-writers and collaborators, no guest rappers, no dance routines.

Sensible is no less timeless, just in a more understated way. Slightly Beatle-esque, balladic and delicate but still oozing honesty and integrity. Again, a far cry from the usual pop fare.

Fads and fashions may come and go but I suspect however strongly the winds of change my low, P.G. Naylor will always be found in the relative calm of the eye of the storm doing what he does best.
