‘catholic’ album reviews

“If [ Gavin Friday ] once tartly likened the Catholic Mass to glam

rock, wit hits purple robes, smoke bombs, dry ice and death cult

trappings, catholic evokes the solemn grandeur of the high Latin


**** – Peter Murphy – Hot Press

“Friday pours his heart out on his fourth solo album, facing both his

personal demons and mortality head on. Weighty stuff, but

tungsten-strength tunes, a lush orchestral feel and Friday’s laconic

delivery make for a winning combination.”

**** – Paul Moody – Q Magazine

“… torchy, mirror-ball beauty. These are his silkiest arrangements

yet, but shadowy undercurrents ensure the tension never lets up.”

**** – Martin Aston – Mojo

“An epic reckoning of midlife loss, bruised romance and broken hallelujahs.”

**** Stephen Trousse – Uncut
