Life In Slow Motion - Average, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Life in Slow Motion is an appropriate name for David Gray's sixth album, since this languid, deliberate album crawls out of the speakers at a speed that suggests everything is stuck in molasses. Not that this is a bad place for Gray to be, or that it is even a big change of pace for him. As the years passed, he's trimmed away the faster tempos from his music, leaving behind an even-keeled, meditative, soft reflective folk-pop that brought him a hit in 2000 with "Babylon" from his fourth album, White Ladder.

The Guardian - 60
Based on rating 3/5

This summer of crooners reaches its climax (which is probably too vivid a word) with the release of David Gray's seventh album. What the successful Welsh brooder has that James Blunt, Daniel Powter and the rest don't is a rueful maturity, making Life in Slow Motion as arresting as these things get. Which is not all that arresting - but Gray surmounts the limitations of one-bloke-and-his-guitar, employing dabs of ghostly minimalism, marching-band maximalism and the tremulous voice that imprinted itself so forcibly with Babylon.
