The Spinning top,

This review is from: The Spinning Top (Audio CD)
Graham Coxon's latest album is a marked change from the punk pop charge of his last couple of records....The spinning top is dominated by strikingly beautiful and original instrumentation ...with some trade mark Coxon guitar noise employed at key moments for maximun impact...
The most pleasing aspect to the album is Coxon's approach to his vocals...On Happiness in Magazines the balance between pop and snarl was almost perfect..But on Love travels at illegal speeds the snarl was beginning to take over from the fragility which makes his voice so unique...Thankfully for the spinning top that balance has been fully restorded and the listeners empathy can fully return to these moving songs...
Next up Coxon has promised 21st century music.. I for one can't wait : hopefully the vocal approach taken on this enchanting record can be filtered into his next release......
