One of Resident’s all-time favourites returns with a fourth album that sees a more upbeat Mason approach life with a confidence and positivity that draws parallels with his beloved Beta Band days, as well as being a thrilling update and upgrade to his solo sound – produced by Stephen Street, there is an authenticity and a “realness” about the sound on ‘About The Light’ that comes from writing and recording with his live band for the first time.

Initially stripping the songs back in order to create more space for soulful elements to emerge, that decision from Mason and Street has allowed a beauty and positivity to emerge, the nearest to a live show that we have yet heard Mason capture on record – at times rootsy, at others almost moving into pop rock territory, throughout it shows a man as energised as we have ever heard him. "...separates Mason from that current glut of nostalgia acts trying to cash in on their past. Mason has always followed his own path, and we’re better for it." 9/10 - clash
