Blake Morgan has been a favorite since his debut Angers Candy from 1997. Unfortunately it has not been so many albums over the years, as he "only" has released four albums. One explanation for this is that he runs Engine Company Records since 2002, which includes James McCartney is signed. Diamonds In The Dark is his first album since the acoustic Silencer that came out in 2005, so it's been a few years. But it feels like he is a perfectionist when all of his albums are of very high standard both regarding the songs and production. This is no exception and is once again an album of really high class. It's a bit softer than both Angers Candy and Burning Daylight when we get a little jazzy undertone. However, there are still some nice power-pop influences here giving Diamonds In The Dark a very warm and atmospheric feel. Tracks like "Water Water Everywhere", "I Can Hear You Say" and "Black Into Blue" shows this very well and are favorites on this lovely album. Could mention more as there is not a single uninteresting track on Diamonds In The Dark, which for me is one of finest albums of 2013.
A must have if you into power-pop in a singer/songwriter format!
