destined for big things
on 14 March 2006
I first heard this in a record store while I was waiting for someone. It was a great stroke of luck because I wouldn´t usually buy something like this, but I fell in love with it.
Amos Lee has a beautifully clear, pure voice, his simplistic trembling voice on the romantic,"Arms of a women," really does it for me.
I like the musical range on this. Although you could classify his voice as soul, the guitar sounds very bluesy on this record and,"Black River," is a fine example of the roots of his music
"Give it up," is a funkier upbeat number that shows the versatility of his voice."Dreamin," is a another fine track with a soulful Stevie Wonder style organ.
"Love in the lies," is another one of my favourites, for the sensitivity of his voice and the bare honesty of the lyrics.
I´m really glad I stumbled upon this and I´ve become a big fan.
