'Nobody knows the ending, he sings. But this outstanding album is a very
good start on the path to finding the light at the end of the tunnel in
which we seem to be lost'. - Mike Davies, Folk Radio Album Review
'There’s no reason to waste any time, so let’s get straight to the point.
Robert Vincent’s third album ‘In This Town You’re Owned’ is a corker (for
those not familiar with this UK term, that’s a really good thing!)....the
quality of the song-writing, the performance and the production never drops
beneath a level that can only be described as outstanding'. - Jim
Finnie, Americana-UK, Album Review
