Warren’s enduring passion for the infectious delights of pure melodic pop informed several excellent albums for The Korgis during the late seventies and early eighties ,along with a major singles success in the shape of the softly beguiling “Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometimes.” The former Stackridge stalwart’s subsequent solo career has been a much more low-key affair but Warren’s tuneful musical exploits always repay closer investigation nonetheless , and “Innocent Bystander” is thankfully no exception to the rule. “That’s What You Do To Me” and “Have You Seen The Colours?” are the best of a catchy bunch.

As well as founding The Korgis he also co-founded Stackridge…now 65 years old, he has written and produced this album of unashamedly catchy tunes and sing-a-long choruses, decidedly retro in flavour…
Bev Bevan, Sunday Mercury (October 2017)
The album is strong, if a little dated, but is a good listen. Well annotated and with bonus cuts, it’s worth checking out. ***1/2

…Warren’s songwriting has always been notable, but the numbers here put even his past hits to shame. Arguably his strongest songs to date…
All Music Guide (May 2007)
It’s a pleasant pop easy listening album…much more like his work with The Korgis than Stackridge
Feedback (January 2006)
…a set of beautifully composed and delicately performed songs. The voice is sugar sweet and just as tasty, while the music is incredibly rich and diverse.
