I haven't been inspired by an album since hearing 1999 by Prince and the Revolution! It is so refreshing to hear something so laden with musical colours, it glows. Walter's voice has been compared to Sting, Steve Winwood or Peter Gabriel and I hear so many other influences in his music from Talking Heads, Stevie Wonder, early Motown and Bjork to Augustus Pablo and Lee Perry. Yet he still remains completely unique. There is not a single track on this album a am indifferent over, every one is fantastic. I on purposely bought Drawing Blood before Making Mirrors because I wanted to completely absorb this earlier work before getting involved in an album I knew I would love. I can't choose between them now but I would say Drawing Blood is a classic.
