  • Voices isn’t just illuminating and thought-provoking and clever; it is exciting.

    Roddy Doyle
  • A brilliant book about singing… I have been talking to Nick Coleman about music, in person and in my head, for forty years now. [With Voices] you have the opportunity to hear what I have heard. I hope you take it

    Nick Hornby, The Believer
  • A deeply personal hymn, aria, sea shanty and saloon bar serenadeVoices is not merely an elegantly written study of a parade of fabled artists, but a long, heartfelt song of gratitude. It’s well worth hearing.

    Graeme Thomson, The Mail on Sunday
  • Unusual and affecting… An elegant, controlled writer whose curiosity is as engaging as his whooping passion.

    Jane Graham, Big Issue
  • Exhilarating… Coleman hears better and more clearly with half an ear than the rest of us do in a lifetime with two.

    Alexandra Coghlan, Spectator
  • Not just a gallery of pen portraits of [Nick Coleman's] favourite singers but an impassioned examination of why certain voices ‘speak’ to us… Like the best music criticism of yore, [Voices] tangentially covers the history of popular music… He’s enjoyably sniffy about Jagger; insightful on Joni… but mostly Voices believes in magic.

    Chris Roberts, Classic Rock
  • A brilliant read.

    James McNair, National
  • A fantastic writer.

    Lois Wilson, Mojo
  • [Voices] will have you delving into your music collection with fresh thanks and renewed appreciation.

    Duncan Fletcher, Shindig!
  • Fans of all genres can dip in for thoughts on nearly everyone in the rock canon.

    Helen Brown, **Books of the Year**, Daily Telegraph
