Coming off of the end of Spandau Ballet, Gary Kemp composed a nice piece of music in Little Bruises. A great deal of Irish influence is obvious in most songs, and a varied inventory of instruments makes the CD a pleasant surprise. A good mix of uptempo (Standing in Love), slower (My Lady Soul, Ophelia Drowning) and personal songs (Brother Heart) make the CD worth listening to over and over again. Gary is obvously the brains behind Spandau ballet and his talent for song making is evident here.
