An instrumental record, this album by the talented guitarist Pete Kent really shows off his impressive talents, his distinctive style is the driving force of this record. The fingerpicking style, coupled with his percussion (using the hollow body of the guitar as a drum) make this a beautiful record, rich in bright tones and mellow soundscapes. A true masterpiece.

If you are also a fan of Mike Oldfield, Gordon Giltrap and/or Lindsey Buckingham, then this eleven  track release may well appeal to you. With two  unique covers of Level 42's "Something About You" and The Police's "Roxanne" nestled in amongst nine  of Pete's own compositions, this is an excellent showcase with the title track, "Postman's Knock", "Soul Mates", "Slipstream" and "The Spiral" particularly impressing. "Believe Me Now" ... It's a great record to listen to with the headphones on and it's a great record to have as a companion in your car too! [8/10]

Pete Kent will appearing at The Robin 2 on Wednesday 27th August 2014 and could well roll out his take on ELO's "Don't Bring Me Down" on the night. I've challenged Pete to attempt his interpretation of "Mr. Blue Sky" at some point in the future too! Find out more from his official web site thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends: Pete Kent to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of: ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, The Beatles, 'Brum Beat' et al.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] universe ... KJS ... 18-July-2014
As soon as I found out he had released an Album, I pre ordered it from Amazon, without any hesitation! It is a great album and I highly recommend it! And I already have done so to some of my friends and family.
I don't have many "music only" albums, but I am more than happy to add this one to them, and if will look forward to future releases.
Stand out tracks, Soul Mates, The Spiral, Postman's Knock and Pete's version of Roxanne are all breath taking, only hoping that this will not be his only album but there will be follow ups to it!!
