"If Scot Johnny Lynch from the picturesque coastal small town Cellardyke publishes not exactly albums with his volume Silver Columns with which he, how he writes 2/3 the volume he puts out, deals with his project The Pictish Trail. The project description for it also let itself rather self-ironic, meant as really serious. Thus he writes: “ I am a slender, intelligent, charming balladeer. Caught in the body überdimensionierten, bearded folk ogre ”. A wonderful description if you ask us and as unusual, like itself Lynch describes also comes along his sound.
Thus opens the album with a computer voice which speaks distorted “ Secret of sound ”. It follows a pluckernder dance beat and a lot Elektrofrickeleien which give a playfully dancing entrance in the album. Afterwards Lynch also starts gesanglich and builds on the Aufschichtung of a lot of games from the computer. About that he sings either with computer-distorted voice, or accompanies the pieces with head voice.
Besides, he conjures a whole row of dance numbers together which get it to connect Leichtfüßigkeit [easily based?] and naivety with demanding Computergefrickel. "Of Course You Exist" is such a number which does immediately mood and sounds a little in such a way as if Blur tried songs of Radiohead's "kid A" play. Properly has also succeeded "Michael Rocket". A quiet number with undulating sound and soulful mark. The second half of the album shows all together anyhow a remarkable break in comparison to the first, rather dance-furious side of the album. However, this one can also breathe deeply as a welcome opportunity to and see relaxed switching off, before the album is finished with delightfully folkigen "Long In The Tooth" in a good mood which shows clear references in The Shins. All that does this solo excursion of Lynch as a The Pictish Trail a refreshing pop album with the right box of eccentricity."
