5.0 out of 5 stars Fragile. Beautiful. Perfect., 28 Oct 2009
This review is from: Yours Truly, The Commuter (Audio CD)
When Grandaddy split up in 2006, not enough people mourned. At their best, Grandaddy were the equal of any of the world's biggest bands, their mix of rock guitar and lo-fi piano with beautiful melodies ploughing the same groove as Radiohead, Coldplay, or last year's Mercury prize-winners Elbow (with a resolutely American bent).

It is a mystery, therefore, why they never achieved global stardom. Three years on, composer and band leader Jason Lytle returns with a solo release. Understandably much in the same vein as his band's material, maybe a little older, a little sadder, its songs filled with delicate and fragile melodies, this album gets under your skin and stays there.

Yours Truly, The Commuter contains fewer of the guitar-driven fireworks of his former band's material, but each song forges its own identity until one cannot help but fall under the spell.

Anyone who loves melodic rock music surely could not fail to enjoy this album. I just hope one day the world wakes up to the genius of Jason Lytle.
