This review is from: When The Devil's Loose (MP3 Download)
The internet, when used correctly, can be an amazing piece of technology.
I regularly scour the web to see if I can find undiscovered ( to me ) gems.
I was fortunate to stumble upon an extrodinary talent in A.A.Bondy.
This album, When The Devil's Loose, is superb.
It opens up with the brilliant " Mightiest Of Guns " and does not disappoint from there on in.
An album swathed in glorious moods, melodies and lyrical prose.
The wonderfully lazy vocal delivery is reminiscent of David Gray meets Thom Yorke,at times, especially on the superb title track.
" Oh The Vampyre " brings Tom MacRae to mind .... but more than that, there is an understated Dylan-esque quality here.
" False River " is probably my favourite track - the guitar sound and instrumentation are exquisite.
" On The Moon " is also an amazing song - the, almost " end of the pier, honkey - tonk piano " giving it a Tom Waites flavouring.
A.A.Bondy is a brilliant singer / songwriter - I am delighted to have discovered this album - for those of you who have not yet heard it, I urge you all to purchase a copy
