5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic and quite brilliant pop music, 5 Aug. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Standard (Audio CD)
So, I have been a long time fan of Kevin Tihista, an obscure little gem, and one who has made key spots on mixtapes to impress girls.

His last album, 'On this Dark Street' was brooding acoustic downbeat pop and I thought it was his best yet. Until now.

Never a prolific recorder, a second album in a year is a rare treat. But what a treat it is.

The album opens with a beautiful little track called Infinity which it is hard to imagining anyone taking offence to. But this leads into a love song of rare brilliance, Right Here, Girl, which should make mixtapes forevermore from lovestruck types.

The song cycle is consistently high, consistently romantic with the odd excursion into bitterness (Try the Veal for example), just to ensure it is a bittersweet record rather than a saccharine sweet one.

After a consistent centre, the album comes to a lovely finish with Sequisha Chingade Picante, followed by the perfect hopeful romantic album closer On My Way.

This is an intelligent subtle pop record. Simple yet complex. Thought provoking yet fun.

Kevin Tihista has just made the best record of a breathtaking career - you should definitely give him a chance of making Modern Standard a standard in your playlists for years to come.
