It took three years for the now 26 year old to follow up the very nice RCA debut LP, produced by the hero Cliff Magness. I really liked the stylish playfulness with good songs in a straightforward and uncomplicated format. On his new album "The Boy Who Never" the foundation remains, though far quieter and more sophisticated. It feels almost like Landon has grown ten years musically on this new disc, from being a teenage artist to an adult singer songwriter. And I have to say that it is a very good choice since "The Boy Who Never" is a much more exciting record. Sure, it is very calm and quiet, but thinks it has a great atmosphere and a completely different soul than LP had. Would almost compare this album to Colin Devlin or his former band Devlin with their quiet and extremely stylish pop / rock. And another artist who comes up stylewise is the talented Mr. David Mead, so if you like elegant pop "The Boy Who Never" a given purchase. Not fantastic, but very pleasant and well written from start to end.
