DIVERSIONS VOL 3 - SONGS FROM THE SHIPYARDS (2013)
"They’re never better than when singing about dignity in the face of adversity. Every crushed knuckle and slide down a slipway is elegantly evoked. There really is no better folk band in the land" Q Magazine

"A riveting, rigorously unsentimental yet deeply moving experience. It’s surely a future classic." Songlines
DIVERSIONS VOL 2 - THE UNTHANKS WITH BRIGHOUSE AND RASTRICK BRASS BAND (2012)
"easily the band's best and most mature album to date" Daily Express

"The Unthanks' boldest experiment yet" The Guardian
DIVERSIONS VOL 1 - THE SONGS OF ROBERT WYATT AND ANTONY & THE JOHNSONS (2011)
"Quite simply, Antony & The Johnsons and I have been blessed by angels. If I had to take a single summary of what Alfie and I have being doing over the years to the proverbial desert island I wouldn't take one of our own records. I'd take the crystal clear interpretations of The Unthanks."
Robert Wyatt
