"A WIRLWIND ROMANCE TO A ROCK 'N ROLL SOUNDTRACK." ★ ★ ★ ★ (The Herald Scotland)

"A WORK OF GENIUS" (Metro, NZ)

Daffodils should play all over the country. It should play all over the world. It resonates so strongly as a piece of our own mixed-up, precious culture, it should be our new national flag.
