lewis taylor stoned,
This review is from: Stoned (Audio CD)
I first saw lewis taylor on 'later with jules' at about the time of his debut release and was blown away by this raw sounding soul. The tension that builds in the song 'lucky to be resolved' by the sweetest melodic sounds I've only heard classically, I'm not ashamed to say melted my musical heart and I was hooked. Being a song writer, I try to listen carefully to the arrangments of lewis' songs but he never fails to lead me into a labyrinth of harmony counter melody etc, so many layers of sound the only way I can sum up is if your ears had teeth they would eat this wonderful ear food, sadly for me I ate too much of the first album and haven't took a bite till now. And oh lord please help me here we go again. Stoned is a beautiful album full of sounds that just become a part of your psyche. This man who as far as I'm aware hasn't had a hit record, is a leading influence in modern music today. Lewis, there's a paid taxi for you to Bolton to meet me. I wanna play in your band!
