"In Another World" is Ryan's second album which is a clear sequel to his debut album "Fable". Less than a year has passed between the two albums yet "In Another World" is a finely crafted evolution of Ryan's skills in which he tells his story through eleven honest songs.
The album hosts a style of mostly finger picking patterns that create a filled, yet spacious and colorful variety of songs. The opening song "Back In This Place" has a constant rolling rhythm that I can say I have never heard used before. I have so many favorites it is impossible to isolate one alone. All the songs are classics in their own right.
This album will leave you questioning how one young man from Yorkshire, England could have educated himself with such a skill that will easily relate and resonate globally. If there's one thing I get from this album, its the straight talking honesty from start to finish which these days is becoming a dying trait in the music industry. If you like great music, you need to own this album.
The 12 songs on this album have been finely honed over the last two years as Ryan has perfected his craft out on the road. When the opening bars of the title track float from the speakers, it becomes apparent that this is a record that defines its creator. - Steve Bradley - Fillmore Music
