Album Review

King becomes progressively stronger with this release, a much more upbeat collection than the more reflective Sticks and Stones. The Robe kicks off with two hard-hitting songs, but it is with the title track that King's abilities are fully displayed. "The Robe" is King's most powerful song yet, with a gorgeous melody and encouraging lyrics that are perfectly presented by Phil Naish's production. The album continues with "Martin Luther," which is probably the funkiest song ever written about the father of the Reformation. Unfortunately, King seems to run out of steam at this point; the remaining songs are fine and often touching, but not as inspired as the first half. The Robe closes, however, with the emotionally powerful Renaissance-flavored "Holy," which rivals "The Robe" as King's crowning achievement to this point. King's natural abilities continue to be apparent, and he also demonstrates a willingness to improve his weaknesses that bodes well for future releases.
