Best Ever Album,
This review is from: April Cruel (Audio CD)
Jason McNiff is one of my favourite artists and this new album fulfills all my expectations.
This CD is Jason McNiff's best yet (even better than "Nobody's Son" which was a great album), with all the tracks being totally original both lyrically and musically. I found that the more I listened to it the more I liked it and I would recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys beautiful guitar playing and likes to be moved by the words in a song."Mountain Song" is an amazing lyrical experience where Jason explains his emotions when writing a song. "Tombola" is a true story about a courageous operation where the SAS joined forces with the Italian and Partisans in 1945 and created havoc behind the German lines. "Lovely Lea" is a beautiful rendition with superb music that just makes you smile and "Pilgrim Soul" really challenges Jason's voice and you feel inspired after listening to it. "Kissing in the Wind" is incredible, especially the wonderful note that exactly represents the yawn of the hippo that Jason absolutely hits perfectly. The CD is worth the money just for this note. "April Cruel" is like nothing ever produced and is a magical experience to listen to and makes you feel quite melancholic. "Bus of Tears" starts slowly and then builds up to an crescendo demonstrating Jason's great song writing talent. This singer songwriter is hugely underestimated and it is a crying shame that he is not as successful as he deserves to be.
Buy this album and I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
