4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Feeding the Wolves, but still fantastic, 24 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Memories And Dust (Audio CD)
My first introduction to Josh Pyke was through his EP Feeding the Wolves, a truely fantastic CD. Whilst Memories and Dust is a very good album which i would recommend, its sound is weaker than Feeding, lacking the instant appeal and "pure" feeling that made Feeding one of my favourite CD's ever, despite not being a full album. I would recommend buying Feeding first and then Memories and Dust, despite the overlapping of 3 tracks.

Josh Pyke has a talent for original and poignant lyrics and an original sound that appears to borrow from countless other singer-songwriters (notably Elliot Smith and Jeff Buckley in my humble opinion) to create something very special. His heavy drawing of orchestral backing lends a rich inclusive sound - a powerful vehicle for his lyrical intelligence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 11 Nov. 2006
This review is from: 9 (Audio CD)
For any fans of Damien Rice's excellant first album "O", "9" is an essential purchase. "9", whilst similar in style shows a developement in his original style. Some fantastic tracks, the best of which (in my humble opinion) "Rootless Tree" combines his raw finger picking guitar with his most mainstream chorus, earning "9" its parental advisory tag. Damien Rice has avoided the cliched pitfall by following his rave-reviewed debut with a truly astounding follow-up.
