Nick Ward has built a strong catalogue of original material in recent years, particularly specialising in catchy 3.30 minute mod inspired pop.
His live performances are to be marvelled at, not only for his excellent guitar playing but also thought provoking lyrical delivery.
Therefore World In Reverse finds Nick in the confines of a recording studio but still retaining much of his live edginess. There are some stand out tunes, My Good Friend features shades of Beatle pop and Elvis Costello while Loser Street rivals the lyrical poetry of Ray Davies.
Nick really shines however on the ballad Paris It's You and the album closer Jade and Sapphire (which features a neat instrumental break).
