Varied and diverse debut as a solo artist.
on 24 March 2014
Jimi Goodwin has carried on the tradition of Doves and Sub Sub to come up with a varied and diverse album of catchy songs with resonant lyrics and a relentless rhythm that is very easy to get caught up in.
Didsbury Girl, and Panic Tree are the most folky and Doves like of the tracks in my opinion and songs such as Man vs Dingo hark back to Sub Sub with the electronic effects and dark tones. Oh Whiskey is the standout track for me as its lyrics are so catchy. Every song says something different and in an interesting way.
Its a great album and highly recommended to anyone who likes the Doves and it shows that Doves fans can have faith in Jimi to pull out all the stops to continue the high quality of output as a solo artist.
Highly recommended. Five stars isn't quite enough...
