5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant, 26 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Sk1 (Audio CD)
Whatever I say about this album won't do it enough justice. A kind of mix of styles ranging from Elliot Smith to Matthew Jay. Young, talented and highly skilled - each song is a cracker that deserves your full attention. Simple acoustic tracks with very clever lyrics over sublime loops and samples that just... work. As with any good album a change in tempo and style keeps the listener attentive.
One of my favourite albums of last year, I see him along side other British single artists such as Badly Drawn Boy and Tom McRae. Standout track is the brilliant 'Staring At The Sun'. Clever lyrics and a chorus everyone can sing along to. Variation in his styles and variation of these styles even within songs simply make this album a must have purchase.
I personally think it takes a bit of time to grow on you, or you to grow to it, but it is simple class. No pun intended...Honest.
*** Like: Elliot Smith and Matthew Jay ***
