Reviewer :
Pär Winberg Format: Album

Genre: Modern Rock
Producer: Malcolm Burn
Artist discography


Take one ounce of R.E.M, one spoon of Matchbook 20, one spoon of Splender and one spoon of Joseph Arthur and you´re quite near this guy and his music. This is a really good album, I can make that clear from the start. The album is produced by Malcolm Burn, who produced Iggy Pop, Emmylou Harris among others, and the production is sure great with a close nerve and the attitude exactly at the right place. After that you can add Chris voice that is solid and unique - almost like a 15 years younger version of Michael Stipe mixed with Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 and Brian Molko in Placebo. Third out is the songwriting, which also is bloody great, with songs that are built up with an almost progressive edge sometimes. Songs that takes you to various places with bombastic refrains mixed with low-key verses. VERY dynamic tunes! Phew... A killer album that you must surf and take a much closer look at. And it grows on you for each listen. Listen to second out ´Offering´ with a monster refrain. Listen to the 4.49 long ´Safe At Night´ which is the perfect mix between Splender, Porcupine Tree and R.E.M. Fabulous tune. And listen to.. well the whole damn album... This is an album for all us musicmaniacs who´re intelligent enough exploring new music. Chris Grace is sure a hidden treasure that you have to look into.
