5.0 out of 5 stars One man & his guitar..., 23 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Surf (Audio CD)
This is the follow-up to his first solo album “Northern Star”, for this release “Mr Frame” has gone for the low-fi approach.
I mean when I say this is that gone are the trappings of a recording studio we the audience are treated to an artist brave enough to sing and just play his guitar and nothing else no rhythm section, no backing of any kind, this raw and honest approach is a refreshing change.
When I listened closely to the lyrics of the songs I couldn’t help but think these words feel like they are ripped out of writer’s soul, the feelings of loss and heartache sound to real not to be autobiographical.
This is a man who hasn’t sold a lot of records lately compared to his commercial highs of the 80’s with his band "Aztec Camera", but instead of going for the big flashy comeback he has recorded a collection of songs in the true troubadour tradition and doing so has given his listeners a true insight into himself.
As the opening track begins “Over You” you can feel the grief and loss in the man’s voice. The title track sounds like a man at a loss of what to do this he conveys with the lines, “Trail my thoughts, show me the way to the heart of her, I’m Half-lost, wondering if I should follow, Or lay low, real heartbreaking tracks, I don’t know if all the tracks are about the same person or abut all his loves throughout his life. The remaining songs are just as intense as the first 2; this album is a collection of classic tracks in the making.
This is a set of 11 songs to listen to with a box of tissues at your side, as this is real emotions and feelings exposed for the entire world to feel and hear…
