Another circle complete
on 19 March 2015
Still trying to stay hip without trying to be, or is he! The lyrics are as ever making sense in this, in his view, senseless world. Yes there is plenty of irony and p*** taking, with music that is more or less the same. By this I mean, although most of his releases are different, they all repeat themselves at some point, so nothing really new then.
The music has a slight Mid Atlantic sound that is not unlikeable, if fact it flows nicely on. Smoothly produced and for Mr Harper really rather an easy listen. Both the lyrics and music together make this quite a serious release, although plenty to smirk with superior attitude at the world, as if he could do better!
Yes the old fans will still believe this is great, and maybe they are right, but to me, you've done it. Having followed him from Folkjokepocus and on, this has all become a bit wearing. One can only moan about something for so long before giving a answer of your own. Just live life and enjoy it.
I'm sure his fans/followers will not like this review, but I can only say what I think, and yes I'm a no one!
