Chasing the Dragon,
This review is from: American Interior (Audio CD)
Since when did concept albums come back into vogue, I must have missed that particular memo.
So yet another absorbing highly ambitious release from Gruff (although not a concept album with a traditional narrative), adopting his indie-singer-songerwriter persona for this project, apart from “lost Tribes” that has a Eighties Neon-Neon feel to it, “Allweddellau..” which features some Native American Chanting, apparently that an offensive term (you learn something new) & the Country & Western tinged “100 Unread Messages”, which hopefully be an out & out future Gruff classic.
For a recording artist who has taste genuine commercial success (“Mwny” was the first & I think only Welsh sung record to break the top ten in the UK), Gruff is not afraid in the least to risk he career by ploughing his own furrow, by constantly releasing left-field records, well done & long may it continue.
