LABEL: VANGUARD 79529-2
Produced by: Michael Lennon
I saw this with the greatest respect - this album is about as sweet and nice as you could possibly get!|
In the sometimes harsh world of hard music, this album is sugary sweet and generally very polite. It's soft acoustic tones and whispered vocals offer a nice change from the over the top productions and the storming choruses.
Of course, you will want to actually have this break from the norm to get into this.
I don't think that's going to be much of a problem as I got a stack of feedback - general enthusiasm - when I mentioned the upcoming release of this album and when I put some soundbytes online.
The guys obviously have an established fan base and all I can say is those people should love this.
This album is a mix of the lighter more acoustic side of Danny Wilde & The Rembrants and the more acoustic popsters out there.
The album was produced and engineered by the band's Michael Lennon and was mixed Thom Panunzio - a name I haven't seen for a good while.
The opening track is my favourite - it's a little more upbeat and generally just a very good pop song.
Always even has a bit of Tom Cochrane style harmonica thrown in for good measure.
The rest of the album is laid back pop/acoustic rock with the smallest hints of a country feel and other hints of pure pop.
A bit soft for some I think.|
