01-02-2012 // Album: Everyman of Parts - Travelling Time|
Always enjoy getting a great musical tip from an insider. In this case I receveid an email from Daniel Sharon aka Balto, the man behind October Road. One of my favourite albums of last year, but unfortunately released back in my '5-lines-per-item'-phase. He tipped me this new release by Andrew Sharon, who played on several tracks on his album last year and has now released his debut solo album Travelling Time.
This 9-piece album holds a little bit of everything, which makes it hard to define, but it helps keeping my attention with the music. After the 2 opening tracks, which are okay but not brilliant (I honestly think I like opener "Arid Eyes" the least), he picks up the pace with pure rocksongs "Dirty Laundry" and "White Lines". They rock in all the right ways and have me jumping around the room all the time.
After that the album slowly softens down. Resulting in beautiful distilled (love)songs like "Are You Cold" and closing track "The End of the Rope".
I really enjoy this album. Everyman of Parts did a great job at it. It holds several styles within, yet it's an album on which all songs fit together great. There are several great references to be found within the beautifully crafted songs and I guess it's perfectly clear for everyone to read: I'm a fan! Great album! Go get it!
