– Alex Gallacher, Folk Radio UK

“He is one of the very few people we know who constantly produce excellent sweeping concept albums. His new album ‘The Butcher’, over two years in the making, is no exception. Part ghost story, part redemption tale, part love story……one epic folk opera!’”
– Laurel Canyon Music

“It’s an expansive work of two distinct parts, each of ten tracks, a composition of sweep and presence that compels you to take part … and you certainly should.”
– Folk Words

“It will take you a while to thread your way through the story, even with Paul’s explanatory notes, but the music is rich enough to carry you through the bits you don’t quite understand the first time round. The Red Meat Orchestra can be everything from a rock band to a full orchestra with brass, strings, woodwinds and a harp.”

“Cinematic in scale, the album is bold in execution”
– Northern Sky

“fine acoustic-pop tunes to savour”
– Flipside Flipside

“unbelievable ambition”
