"These songs are tinged with melancholy, yet paradoxically uplifting. Soaring guitars, saxophones and Mellotrons with layered vocal harmonies are all tools Rhys has used to build positively orchestral sounds, in an album that is intimate in places and lush throughout.
On the surface, Rhys’s vocal style would have slotted in perfectly with bands from the Big Band era. His albums would sit equally well with the Progressive Rock bands or the more art-rock orientated artists of the seventies.
It would seem in 'October After All', if he hadn’t already done so, Rhys Marsh has found his sound."

“‘October After All’ is a record that we take pleasure in discovering and rediscovering. Accessible, well thought-out, sensitive and profound, the latest Rhys Marsh is a beautiful album that makes you want to immerse yourself in the discography of its creator.”
