'Built On Glass' is the debut album of Australian singer/songwriter Chet Faker.
As far as style goes it's a mixed bag; largely laid back and somewhat "jazzy" in
mood; the crisp arrangements framing Mr Faker's mournful baritone which
occasionally reaches upwards on the stave with less convincing results but
all-in-all he knows how to craft a decent tune in a late-night-listening kind of way.

There are a few frisky moments scattered through the set, the most satisfactory of
which is '1998', which owes a small debt to the memory of John Martyn but he appears
more at home with introverted tracks such as opening number 'Release Your Problems',
a well-executed example of louche soul; 'Talk Is Cheap', with its staccato beats and
melancholy sax decorations and the curiously engaging final number 'Dead Body'
in which Mr Faker delivers perhaps his finest vocal performance in the collection.

A moderately engaging first showing in need of a little more energy and sparkle.

Personally this hit the spot for me, with his lo-fi soul style. If you have heard his recent single 'Talk is Cheap' and liked it, then you should like the album. Some music is designed to make you listen, rather than dance, and this is definitely in that category. Nothing uptempo or danceable, but it's not meant to be; so put on the headphones and just enjoy it.

Fantastic Album, perfect to listen to when you need to relax. Along with 'Gold' and 'Talk is Cheap', personal favourites include 'Blush' and 'Cigarettes & Loneliness'. If you're looking for something to cool down to, this is the perfect album.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it - it's such a chilled-out album, great easy listening. And the amazon auto-rip means I got to listen to it before he even received it, so I too can say it's a really good album.
