4.0 out of 5 stars Go Gary Go !, 14 July 2009
This review is from: Gary Go (Audio CD)
Mr Go (nee Baker allegedly) is a very fine songwriter.

His eponymous album displays music of grand design.
Big tunes; big production; big ambitions.

He has constructed eleven strong compositions for us.
The finished product is hard to refuse.
It burrows its way insistantly into your musical receptors
and sits there waving and smiling. Refusing not to be noticed.

Strong melodies; widescreen arrangements and a voice which has
the capacity to bring it all together with verve and panache.

Opening track 'Open Arms' is a winner every inch of the way.
Chiming chords; pounding percussion and an affectingly
memorable vocal performance.

Most of the material has epic scope.
'Brooklyn', however, is a particularly beautiful
song which understands the meaning of economy.
The string, piano and brass arrangement is stunning.
World-class stuff !

'Heart and Soul' is another cracker!
Soulful, plaintive and uplifting.
An anthem to aspiration and hope.
Optimistic music for increasingly dark times.

'Speak' is, in all likelihood, the album's highpoint.
Complex; multi-layered and strangely elusive.
The shifting vocal harmonies are particularly delightful.

A consumately crafted piece of work.
Coherent and completely convincing.

Highly Recommended.
