In a league of his own.....??,
This review is from: Strangers (Audio CD)
Having heard about Ed's music from a few friends and seeing the usual articles in the musical press about 'Strangers', I was slightly put off from buying this album for some reason. However, a few weeks ago I bought the album in my local record store out of curiosity, and wow, what an album this is. Well done curiousity!
Right from the slighly above-norm tempo of 'The Storm is Coming', the musical arrangement makes a play for your throat, grabbing it and not letting go for around forty-five minutes of high-class music. Highlights for me (and on an album as great as this, these really are highlights) are the title-track 'Strangers', 'The Trapdoor', 'Music Box' and 'Open Book', although all tracks could have made it.
People usually find it within themselves to compare the artist's sound to similar sounds, but I can't as it seems pretty unique as far as i'm concerned.
Congratulations Ed, you should be very proud of this album.
