Album Review

Listening to Chris Spheeris' gently rhythmic but ultimately sleepy flamenco guitar based Eros, you might think you've stumbled upon outtakes from Jesse Cook or today's current master of easygoing pop flamenco, Ottmar Liebert. But those two usually have the keen sense to vary the tempo just enough to avoid each tune from bleeding into the next they'd never create a whole album of lullabies.

It's just that overall, it comes across much like the atmosphere at a French café - lovely enough to put you in the mood, but ultimately too easy to forget when morning comes.
