ROBERT POST (2005) Album Review Excerpts

Got None is a classic pop gem clad in a velvety arrangement with soothing strings. If you love it, you’ll love the album. There’s something timeless with Robert Post, but not in an antiquated sense – the music’s too lively. Dagbladet

Well written, great arrangements, vibrant and with perfect dosage of both nostalgia and melancholy… VG (4/6)

The Times on Robert Post’s debut single and album: 

“Who is he? A Norwegian who has penned this year’s greatest pop song. Got None, Post’s debut single, is one of those tracks that sound preordained. A keening lullaby that recalls the effortless songsmithery of Paul McCartney, Andrew Gold, Billy Joel and Ed Harcourt, it’s a classic example of a song where one melody doesn’t so much give way to the next as dictate it and make it seem inevitable. The story goes that Post was driving a taxi and, finding that he had the head of Mercury A&R in the back of his cab, cheekily blasted his passenger with a demo tape. Apocryphal or not, Mercury has reason to congratulate itself: for Got None is no one-off. The whole of Post’s eponymous debut album glories in tunes many songwriters would kill for.” 

Robert Post’s debut album, the aptly titled ‘Robert Post’ produced by renowned producer Mike Hedges (The Cure, Manic Street Preachers) released by Mercury in the UK on 22 August, 2005.
