For a man who has been in the top 40 with Cosmic Rough Riders, Daniel Wylie is virtually unknown. It must be frustrating for him, knowing he's got the goods but still remains a cult underground figure on the music scene. Perhaps that's all he wants. Perhaps people in radio land love him and don't want to share him. Who knows? I could have reviewed any of his three solo albums and said the same things. That's because they are all of a quality that few artists reach with even one album. Consoling The Girl, Brighton Beach, Grapevine, Unwind, Maybe I've Changed, The Daily Grind. Songwriters would kill their own family to be able to conjure up pop gems like these. Great cult artists have a habit of turning into household names and I wouldn't be surprised if this happened to Daniel Wylie. How can it happen? I haven't got a clue. Luck? He doesn't seem to have any right now otherwise he'd already be a household name. Whatever, R.E.M. the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Shins, Velvet Underground and Neil Young are all influencing this music he's making and it's not like it's copying as it has an originality to it too. It's up there with those guys. Ach, just buy it. If you don't agree, you can always send it back and get the new Sugababes cd.
