This Could Be His Day,
This review is from: STRANGE FLOWERS (Audio CD)
Four years after his somewhat downbeat and introspective album "Holy Love", former Love and Money frontman James Grant returns with what ought to be his most commercially successful offering yet.
The album opens with the anthemic "This Could Be The Day" and continues to show Grant's ability to write great tunes with powerful and literate lyrics, with catchy songs like "Dark Star" and "Lake Louise", and the funky "Can't Beat The Music", balanced with tender love songs like "The Bay At the Nape of Your Neck" and "Is this the Kiss?". His repertoire is further shown with the epic "My Father's Coat", which deals with the same introspective themes as the previous album but which ends with can only be described as a rock guitar solo worthy of featuring in Guitar Hero.
Ever the showman, he leaves us wanting more with the beautiful 90 seconds of "Catherine Burns".
This album has been available from James' own website since February, and has generated a great deal of excitement among his admittedly partisan fanbase. But with very positive reviews in the music media, this could be the album that brings him back into the public spotlight
