Fit for a King,

This review is from: Andromeda Heights (Audio CD)
If albums were bought on merit alone this one should rank in the top 10. Lyrically Paddy has managed to create a seemingly never ending stream of highly polished songs, beatty, moody, dark, deep, poppy there is no end to this bands talent. The delivery is as always lush, smooth and very refined. A 'Prisoner of the past' would be perfect as track 1 with its announcing intro reminiscent of big band sounds (don't worry no brass band music here!!) whilst'Anne Marie' fills the room with twinkly sounds accompanied by floaty vocals and Paddy's crooning followed by well fitted strings - superb. However, Paddy's song-writing talents are best excercised through the almost progressive-rock track 'The fifth horseman'. Don't listen to people when they say this album does not rival Jordan - I believe this album is better but does come to an end too quickly - as they say time flies when you're havng fun!!!
