"Mean, moogy and magnificent.
One World is the most mesmerising album of the year.
More complete even than Bowie's.
Just plain better than anything else." **
"The sabbatical has done the man good.
John Martyn has returned with a remarkable album." **
"So fine spun you half expect the record
to float on and off the deck...
there isn't any other musician doing what Martyn does" ***
"Some of us live like princes
Some of us live like queens
Most of us live like me
And they don't know what it means" *
* John Martyn (One World) ** Monty Smith (N.M.E.) *** Vivien Goldman (SOUNDS)
