What people said about There Are No Maps For This Part Of The City.
A lovely album. A late contender for one of the best of the year.’ Gideon Coe, BBC 6 Music
‘It’s the sort of record that they – the Mark Eitzels and the Paddy McAloons – used to make. An adult pop record with heart and brains.’ The Guardian
‘A compelling end of year treat… perfectly attuned to winter’s lonely, dark nights.’ Drowned in Sound
‘The songs glow with a sense of sincere, melancholic wonderment… An album to get lost in.’ The List
‘A heartbreaking and delicate album… a great piece of work.’ Sunday Mail
‘Majesty enough to keep Eaton strides ahead of the curve.’ The Skinny
‘Unquestionably the best thing he’s ever done. I perhaps shouldn’t start off by comparing it to other albums, but when you see the ones I do, you will understand: Brian Eno’s Music For Airports. The Blue Nile’s Hats. Virginia Astley’s From Gardens Where We Feel Secure. Yes. That good, that special.’ Is This Music
