Somebody had to..., 30 Dec. 2004
After winning over millions of fans, SOMEBODY had to continue Lighthouse Family's unique musical formula for success, and no one seems more capable of doing so than L.F.'s own front man, Tunde Baiyewu. His voice soars beyond the vocal constraints of his former context in surprising ways, and Tunde's song craft seems to match that of his former band-mate, Paul Tucker. The lyrics are sometimes poignant and always warm, capturing the true spirit of Lighthouse Family in a way that gives me hope that the short-lived tradition of my favorite band will carry on. I have little doubt that if Tunde succeeds, he will eventually experiment with his sound in a way that takes him beyond his recent roots, but for now I am very satisfied with a record that reminds me so much of a recording group that would otherwise be sorely missed among today's musical offerings.
