I like it but...,
This review is from: Making Mirrors (Audio CD)
Man alive this guy doesn't fit into any genre - listening to the MP3 clips via the download album, he IS a genre!
There are smatterings of reggae, early 80's style Jon and Vangelis (in a good way), Sting, Peter Gabriel and a whole lot of completely original... well... original!
It's unique, immediately enthralling, quiet and yet something you can equally belt out at massive volume. Perfect quiet driving music or windows down "check me out" summer music.
And yet, there is something mildly disturbing too. The lyrics are sometimes angry and hurt - how much pain has this guy seen?
It's a damn good album and one that can only grow as you listen to it, but if you're ready for a session of something "samey" this album will make you dizzy!
Eclectic is probably the way to best describe this album. Odd would work too... I like it, regardless of how confused this review sounds.

Please trust me... this album in some ways feels odd and disjointed on first listen, with the brilliant Somebody That... and Eyes Wide Open overshadowing the tiny intro track and oddly truncated yet excellent track 2, but PLEASE be assured, you will listen and listen to this album and appreciate it fully as a splendid WHOLE. The production quality is absolutely stunning. The lyrics are varied in tone, mood and subject matter. Please trust GOYTE.. UTTER Brilliance - you will play it again and again, especially if you make daily car journeys... and that is what I wouldn't have expected to now be saying about this album as a whole , in review, one month back.
