What an utter delight this latest cut from David Scott is (particularly as I'd no idea a new album was in the pipeline; I have Amazon's sinister-but-useful product recommendation system to thank for that which had noted I had bought the Pearlie's previous ones).

To those new to the 'band' (which is largely a one-man project) what you get are timeless, lushly produced and beautifully sung, played and executed sophisticated pop nuggets in the style of Brian Wilson, Bacharach, The Beatles etc. But rather than Scott's songs being slavish, ersatz homages to his influences (unlike, say, the albeit enjoyable output of The Wondermints) Scott once again manages to transcend the high bar set by them. Is there any higher praise?

A track-by-track breakdown is unnecessary: there's not a dud on the album - all sixteen of 'em (which is something that 'Q' magazine sniffily seemed to hold against it - suggesting that sixteen is more than enough 'creamy' pop for anyone to stomach at any one time - and it reminded me why I jacked in buying Q years ago). I would say though that, in the round, I consider this a mellower effort than any of its predecessors - but only by a tad. All the hallmarks of what makes Pearlfishers' albums so special are in evidence; the fabulous melodies, the poignant and moving lyrics, the aforementioned wonderful production and the supremely accomplished playing and arrangements throughout. What's more David Scott's voice remains as sweet, mellow and individual as ever.

Davey Scott has been making superb music for a long time , certainly over 20 years at least. i know this because i went to see The pearlfishers when i was on my honeymoon , at the Old Atheneum in Glasgow , August 1993. It was a superb show and i've kept up with his music ever since , there has been some fine fine listening involved over the years. He's made 7 albums in that time , the latest of which is this rather excellent effort : Open Up Your Colouring Book.
Highlights abound and i have a new favourite every time i put the damn thing on , right now it's the wondrous title track which seems to channel the spirit of a certain Brian Wilson in a perfect 4 minutes and 45 seconds of aural bliss. Seriously , one of the best tracks released in 2014 so far.
But there's a lot more. The whole thing begins for instance with four absolutely perfect tracks , making me think that this just may be his best album. It never lets up though and there's simply not a bad track on the full thing , a perfect pop construction which sounds amazing right now and will be even better when (if) the sun is shining through my window…………..
Thoroughly recommended for anyone who loves melody , joy and good times , this album will enhance your life. It gets better with every listen , you'll love it. Trust me !!!

This is my first ever review despite being an avid cd purchaser for many years. I can not be silent about this release however. If Brian Wilson had released this the world would be talking about it for years. But he has not and David Scott has. So it will remain in obscurity. Never mind. My gain. The general public' s loss. Pure genius. The best release of the decade.

As the proud owner of the entire Pearlies' catalogue I am not surprised but delighted to report that David Scott has done it again. A fantastic collection of melodious and harmonious pop candy. Why they aren't huge I have no idea. Great work!

All Davey Scott's usual influences are there, Beach Boys .. Burt .. er Dean Friedman and it all comes together in a great new Scottish album, see if you can spot John Barry and a nod to Shelley (the sitcom not the poet)
