Customer Reviews

Accomplished first album with mature voice

A great album. After a deceptive first track, the album starts to rock, but with a twists of funk, dance, soul and jazz. Some tracks hit you immediately, some are growers. 77 with it's catchy hook and the heavier Poetic Justice and Pelican Hill all stand out. Blown Away is a brooding grower. Mentality has echos of a Martin Gretch song. A Little Closer is the popiest track. Make Me Yours sounds like an instrumental from a spy-thriller set in Northern Africa. Well worth listening to a few times.

A triumph of sound

The confusion and ambiguity surrounding the death of James Orange Rockaverve Amp wraps around this album like a black cloud.

It is impossible not to think of it without listening deeper within the music for some sign, some understanding of how the tragedy came about. Accident or design? We shall never know.

The release of 'Pelican Hill’ and his demise are connected so closely in time that hardly a breath hangs between them.

The sixteen compositions which make up this project contain some of the most intelligent and emotionally affecting sounds to have evolved out of rock’s chequered history. It is a distinctive and substantial contribution to the genre.

Rock-solid beats like blocks of granite, stark and immovable. Washes of swirling half-heard disembodied voices, lost in a sonic fog.

'77' takes one's breath away with its uncompromising vision.

'Fear of Loneliness' moves like a shadow over water. The gradual build-up of layer upon layer of sound is utterly thrilling. Its ending as ambiguous as its beginning.

“Pelican Hill” is infused with a little more warmth than we encounter elsewhere on the album. The spirits are still restless however. The swirling central crecendo is unlike any other sound I have ever heard. Mesmerizing.

Final track ‘Lullaby' could be a portent. Choked, raw and unresolved.

Retrospectively it almost seems as though the loss was already there in the music.

The album is both an epitaph and a revelation.

Essential.

Next please

Next album release now. This man is a sensation ;)
