LOUIS ELIOT ‘The Long Way Round’

Now this little album is a gem. People (and especially record labels) love to pigeonhole music but this album defies categories, bar just ‘bloody good music’.

Take the eastern tinged opener ‘Warmth of the Sun’ - shades of the late, great George Harrison here and the music is crystal clear. ‘Emily’ is a tune destined to be a single - simple melody and memorable chorus. ‘Falling’, a delightful acoustic number with Louis Eliot’s vocals taking centre stage.

‘Country Life’ is a plea to escape the city into the simpler life of the country - Louis Eliot has a keen lyrical eye and never over clutters the song. Musically there is a lot going on as well with horns used throughout and plenty of acoustic guitar to fill out the tunes.

There is a lot of music after your attention out there and this album is one that deserves your attention. You won’t be disappointed!

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
