SCOTT MATTHEWS Passing Stranger San Remo REMOCD001 (2006)
Midlands based singer/songwriter Matthews releases this new album, but it's hardly a rock affair.
The 40 second opener 'Little Man Tabla Jam' features some neat slide acoustic guitar, but it's downhill there.
A mixture of styles, including a tabla, it's pretty standard singer songwriter material. Some nice tunes along the way, the bluesier tracks work well, the rest is ordinary, and that's being kind.
Nice, too nice, coffee table music.
