Review:
Ross Campbell from Open Record

This album stands out as one of the better Afrikaans recordings I've heard to date. A very straight forward middle of the road rock / blues production, but at least they got it right. All the instruments sound nice and full, warm and well played especially the piano. I have no idea what he's singing about, but I think it has to do with trains, graves and the history of our country. Piet reminds me a lot of Dire Straits without the brilliant guitar or Tom Petty without the voice.
