This is a favourite of Mr C’s and he has waited to pick it until I had a bit more experience in this whole album adventure business. The pressure was on because I don’t know what kind of row would have kicked off if I hadn’t liked it.

Thankfully, it’s brilliant. It probably has a bit of a benefit from following on the slow-pace chill-fest of Taylor’s latest album, but even without that, it’s just good soft rock. One is genuinely one of the greatest songs ever, but even with that it doesn’t overshadow everything around it - they all stand up.

A great album to finish the year on and, hopefully, marriage still in tact.

Rating: 5 / 5
