STYLE: Rock RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 18270- LABEL: Independent FORMAT: Cassette Album
Reviewed by Mike Rimmer
The problem with privately recorded albums is that compared to the high quality of recordings made by the mainstream Christian labels, they seldom come off favourably. Sadly Clouded Vision fall into the same music quality trap. Clearly Peter Laws (for he is Clouded Vision) is an above average musician and these songs are well written and competently arranged. Laws only recently became a Christian and the songs reflect the wonder and enthusiasm of his new faith and are passionately performed in a variety of melodic rock styles. Sadly the low-fi production acts as a barrier to enjoyment of this album. As a bonus, this album also comes with an extended piano instrumental ambient passage of music called "Into The Sea Of Rainbows" which Peter describes as "a spiritual journey through music". All of this for three quid! No quibbles in the value for money stakes! I have a feeling we'll be hearing more from Mr Laws.
