Album Review

On Share It!, Paul "Snoflake" Taylor (that's right, "Snoflake," without a "w"), who wrote, sang, and played most of the instruments on the disc, displays a "jack of all trades, master of none" quality, ranging from style to style as if he were trying to re-create the sounds of an eclectic record collection dating back to the 1960s and up to the '80s. There is mainstream rock ("Just Can't Wait That Long Anymore"), bossa nova ("Share It"), '80s soul ("Candle"), country ("Not Still Lost in TN"), folk/pop ("Learning Curve"), power pop ("Make Your Echoes Go Away"), electro-funk à la Prince ("Relentless"), and blue-eyed soul ("Perfect Reflection") before the album concludes with an easy listening instrumental. Overdubbing numerous instruments, Taylor plays just well enough to suggest the style he's going for, but not well enough to really compete. If Lionel Richie heard the shambling, shifting rhythms of "Candle," he'd fire the drummer; Hall & Oates would ridicule "Perfect Reflection." The difference, of course, is that the originators of these styles really believe in them and play them slickly. Taylor is just having a laugh. This is most evident in his vocals, which are rudimentary at best, rarely up to even the more modest demands of the styles he draws from. Actually, he is at his best on "Relentless," perhaps because the prominent rhythm track is machine-made and therefore maintains its groove, while the vocals are recessed in the mix. Taylor clearly is aiming for a D.I.Y. approach, and that he certainly achieves. It's just that he's applying that approach to pop styles that demand technical ability and discipline, not just messing around.

Customer Reviews

its okay ... :)

I cant say I am a huge fan after previewing all the tracks.. but I can say that he does have a unique voice and I loved his song "Make your Echos Go Away". I bought that song. I think there is a little something for everyone offered in this album. its definately worth it to check it out. :)

"Share It!" is an interesting album...

We're the kind of reviewers that like to sum up the description of an artist's music in clever little catch phrases, so we'll describe the music of Paul "Snoflake" Taylor by describing him as the love child of John Lennon and Prince with Todd Rundgren and Alex Chilton as uncles and Joni Mitchell as an aunt (actually this is totally tongue-in-cheek because the press release that accompanied this disc suggested that we use this comparison). Share It! is an interesting album. Underground releases usually sound like underground releases...but this album does not mainly because Taylor writes classic pop songs that could easily be appreciated by a wide spectrum of listeners. His songs are warm and inviting...and he has a nice understated vocal style that is particularly appealing. And in all honesty, he does indeed have a good bit in common with at least some of the well-known artists mentioned above (we can hear definite threads of Lennon and Chilton in his music). Nine feelgood tracks here including "Just Can't Wait That Long Anymore," "Make Your Echoes Go Away," and "Perfect Reflection." (Rating: 4++++)-- --BabySue
