The Great Comeback Album,
This review is from: In the Key of G (Audio CD)
It seems Gilbert O'Sullivan's comeback is complete with this great album which inludes some of the most memorable and moving songs he wrote. The touching elegiac song 'Lost a Friend' pays tribute to John Lennon and Elvis Presley, and sets the tone of the whole album. His music has deepened its wistful lyricism as the painfully beautiful songs like 'At the Very Mention of Your Name' and 'To the Extreme', with the evocative use of the synthesizer, show. Hauntingly atmospheric songs 'If I Start with the Chorus' and 'Gordon Bennett' display his maturity as a songwriter. In many ways, this album suggests a new direction and renewed enthusiasm for seeking new sound and meaning in his music.
