4.0 out of 5 stars Accomplished Debut, 27 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Panic Grass & Fever Few (Audio CD)
I have to admit I don't know a thing about Ian King except that he makes exceedingly good records, (well just one at present). Basically this is English traditional music which has had a couple of tablespoons of reggae, a helping of brass and some slick production to give the album a highly contemporary sound. I don't do dancing but I know exactly what one of the other reviewers means and it's not white hankerchiefs and bells stuff. 'Death and the Lady' is given the treatment and emerges with a jungle sound but retains its doom-laden feel. The gorgeous 'Isle of France' is transformed into an almost jaunty reggae ballad and somehow all of this works. King also includes one his own compositions 'By George', that I'm not quite sure about, but it sits quite comfortably alongside the album's other material. Overall I think it's worth the outlay for a record that makes a brave attempt to do something different and that largely succeeds.
