Imagine a mix between Bruce Hornsby, Marillion, Roger Waters and Peter Cetera and were quite near this guys garden of music. Its sure a nice piece piece of plastic that I got from John last week. Sure - its demos - we must all be aware of this. The sound isnt 100% and the drum-machine sound are really boring on some of the songs, but apart of that Im really impressed. Its a very unique cup of tea he delivers. As I said - its impossible to categorize this cd. On some songs - all Marillion freaks (the Hogarth era) will scream yippie, on some songs the Bruce Hornsby fans will be more than happy and then there are well I shouldnt say westcoast pop - but in a little more modern costume.
If this album had a real productionbudget and if the album was by Pat Leonard it would have ended up at a very high level. The alck of productions pull down the grading a bit - but all in all a highly interesting newcomer that Im sure we will hear a lot more from.
