Goin' Home

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Although Goin' Home is just his second album, Gibb Todd has already created quite a stir in folk circles.

As a Scot recently moved to Australia, the concept of home is obviously one that draws him and not only in the album's title; his own "Canada" addresses the idea through the prism of history, while "Norlin' Wind" with its eerie bassline becomes one of the most memorable tracks, and "Last Trip Home" has a delicate poignancy.

Not afraid of tackling big songs, he offers a stark version of Eric Bogle's classic "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" that overpowers by its straightforward approach.
