5.0 out of 5 stars Eye to Eye, 23 April 2006
This review is from: Clean Slate (Audio CD)
I really like this CD from Eye to Eye. Julian Marshall and Deborah Berg have hit the spot with Clean Slate.

Berg's effortlessly beautiful voice hooked me from first hearing Scenes By a Wishing Well. She really brings the lyrics alive.

Some stunning organ work here from Marshall, showing that less is more. The song also has some tasty horn playing.

In Fly Now Marshall and Berg show that it is possible to write a moving song responding to the appalling events of 9/11. There artistry really shines through in this haunting piece.

Dragon Fly has space and lovely guitar and keyboard passages.

This is a really well crafted and thoughtful album from Eye to Eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye To Eye -Clean Slate, 7 Jun. 2006

Here's a thing - a brand new album with what might be thought of as traditional values. Eye to Eye is the trading name for Julian Marshall and Deborah Berg, two quirky songwriters and musicians. Clean Slate is a fine and strutting collection of songs made by people who come from a generation which understands that if music is to mean anything it needs to be played in real time by real people. Each word has its place, every note its space and no one has to shout to get heard.

Particular mention for drummer Martin Ditcham, who plays as if he has been touched by the gods, and for producer Rhett Davies who has created a cohesive sound world in which the music exists. The songs deal with grown up issues, parenting, the passing of time, lost affairs. There is even a hint of Dannish harmonies in the air. What more could you want? This album is a joy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth as Silk, 12 Jun. 2006

I loved Scenes form a Wishing Well the first time i heard it and still enjoy it every time. Throughout the CD Deborah's voice bathes you like silk.

It has a slight jazz feel and feels somehow supportive rather than invasive. This is music for late on a summer evening. It has some great lyrics so don't just enjoy the music. I liked Mother of a Family.
