You know why English singer-songwriter David Gray is better than most of his adult-alternative counterparts from the States? Because the guy's background isn't tainted with years of exposure to American soft-rock radio. He possesses, as Foundling demonstrates, impeccable taste. The title track in particular is a real standout, a moody and meditative hymn, one that recalls vintage Richard Thompson and Paul Simon's Graceland.
