I received this book for Christmas, and haven't stopped playing it since! Some of the pieces are quite difficult, with subtle chord changes and key signatures, but I agree that it just demonstrates the talent of Mr Rice-Oxley! Bedshaped sounds amazing, and it's so satisfying to be able to play it for yourself.

This book is so great, I haven't stopped playing it since my birthdaywhen my freind gave it to me. I hope the people who buy it enjoy it as much as I have. Anonymous

All the songs sound exactly like the album version... as long as I don't sing!
Easier to play than sing if you're not high voice, but still you'll really enjoy it!

I adore this book amazing playing these songs yourself xx Anonymous
This book gave me great insight to the songs that were so well done on Hopes and Fears. It contained everything needed to perform each one of the album's tracks (except for drums). The skill level is certainly not an accuracy factor in this music. I find the vocal and piano parts to be written with great care and knowledge of the songs. As an American, I was also delighted to find a song that was not on the American version of Hopes and Fears, called "On a Day Like Today." Whether or not this song is on the British release, I do not know.
