A lush raw beauty,
This review is from: Map or Direction (Audio CD)
I've never written a review before but I felt compelled. This is an amazingly beautiful and lyrically accomplished gem of an album, at one with itself and ultimately uplifting with undertones of life's mixtures of pleasure and pain. John Smith combines tidy but flowing guitar with a voice that's at once husky, edgy and sweet.
I've listened through several times now and it's growing in stature more and more in my music collection. There's a real sense of being transported to the woods... countryside... or back in time...
Axe Mountain in particular makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. Lush!
Beautiful, sincere, honest music from an outstanding talent. Enjoy people enjoy.
