back to basics,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: YOU, ME AND THE ALARM CLOCK (Audio CD)
okay, it is a little Braggy at first listen. But I like BB. I wasnt sure about this release at first. A lot of the songs can be found free on the internet and one of them is on a later I Am Kloot album. And its short too. (in joke ?) I found a use for this CD. Its great in the car because of the very clear vocal. Even on the motorway the words never get muffled.
And my passengers never said "oh-mum-do-we-ave-to-listen-to-this"
So this is what younger Johnny sounded like. Bright and clear and a little less sarcastic, and a little more homely, less starry eyed.
So, that's all the comparisons out of the way. seven track with cooly indifferent lyrics conveying little dollops of sweetness into our grimy rainy northern town existences. Some of the song structures are maybe, a tiny bit basic. This is one guy and a guitar and it sounds like all one-take numbers. It's a quality recording, and the songs and the performance stand up for themselves.
