There was an egret and a mallard
fighting over a fish that’s how, “Lost on the Same Street,” hit me. The pure
lyrical beauty rolls first with an acoustic, then the singer comes in. I see
the truth in the songwriting, the vocals, then just like the egret, it takes
off into flight. A great chord progression really pushes this song opening up a
new era for this singer. This was an incredible choice from either him or his
production company.

“Long Way Down,” has almost an eerie
keyboard that sets the mood. It must have been written with a deep appreciation
for how far he has come. This seems a reflection on his career, a look from
others watching his rise as well.

“Your Ghost,” really piqued my
interest. I felt I had to review it to understand the meaning behind the title.
It has to do with a friend’s passing a long time before. This, however sad the
thought, is accompanied by a beautiful keyboard and nice electric guitar
accompanying it. The background vocals also add an extra level of
thought-provoking lyrics.

The final song on the album opens up
with a lone keyboard. Then the vocals come with no background vocals. This is a
very deep song. It’s a lone man thinking of something that really hurt him.
Halfway through the song the tense changes to present. The lyrics in this song
produced the title. Which, I believe is a great title. Maybe it’s the best
album title of all that I have reviewed. There is no guitar just the singer a
piano and a bit of that eerie keyboard.

Overall, I believe this is an album
worth listening to. Everyone who has read my work will see that I just tell it
like it is with no preconceived notion about the singer or the band. I highly
suggest you take a look at this singer if you haven’t already.

  1. Mr.Frost shows us vividly in a section of his interesting article how Metaphysical depths have been touched by the artist. It was well worth the read for that one mention, otherwise read it all and enjoyed too:) Thank you
