5.0 out of 5 stars Understated Talent, 3 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Dear (Audio CD)
There aren't many pieces of music which make me sit up and take notice these days. Not instantly. But the hairs on the back of my neck raised when I heard You Don't Know How Lucky You Are. Its the sound of one man making music with his guitar and laying his heart on the line. Intense is an understatement. It is reminiscent of Josh T Pearson's efforts last year (except I prefer this). Sure its not happy - even Party Song song is downbeat. But it contains enough moments of brilliance to win you over. You keep coming back and whilst it may be a bit too much to listen to all the time (its dark), it really is rewarding, intimate and full of passion. So far removed from the Pop music of X-Factor and all the better for it.

This is an album for stereo's (the bass and space of it works with speakers). This is an album for headphones (the intimacy demands such a device to conduct the heartfelt moments intimately). This is an album which lingers (the keening voice and haunting melody will stay long beyond the last note). This is an album that deserves to be heard.

Syriat, I owe you a sincere "thank you" for turning me on to this incredible music. After reading far, far too many of your excellent reviews at work today, starting with Sugar's "Copper Blue", I was intrigued to come across your review of "Dear". Listened to it, bought it, happy. So ends a good day.
Anybody else reading this, even a 5 star review doesn't do this guy justice. Do what I did and just buy it.
Cheers.
