Good day loyal readers! Check out this explosion of review-o-matic madness! And then read my reviews. BOOM! Insane!
A great release by this singer, who became famous with some TV roles, and music related to them. This EP shows a progression from that more poppy side, to emotional but catchy songs that pull you in and feel like they come from a real place.
Cover of Love
A half covers, half originals record by Phil, the covers reflect some of his influences, and are adapted to his voice and style nicely. The other songs are all co-writes, and very much fit in with Phil’s more recent releases.
I always love hearing these compilations, just showing there are people out there carrying the flag for pop music. It is great to hear so many songs, but a bit overwhelming to find any major highlights.
Antony and the Johnsons
Cut The World
A live album by the great Antony and the Johnsons, good versions of some old songs, and one new song. The one thing I didn’t love was the inclusion of him talking for about 5 minutes about his philosophy on feminism, while it was interesting I don’t think it belongs on a record.
Finally, they return with a fantastic album. The lead off track is the obvious winner, combining that classic sound with a bit more modern production technique, it is great, the rest of the album glides along behind it just fine.
