Kevin and Bryn have created a masterpiece. Official! It's an album I'm pleased to have alongside all my other CDs and vinyl. I'll also play this to all my friends whether they're Christian or not! lt is that good. Get the drift? Can I be more subtle? How about, "Go and buy it!" It features two talented guitarists demonstrating superb fret work when ducting or playing solo. The harmonies can't be faulted. What makes the work stand out is that whilst I normally go for the big electric sound. Kevin and Bryn have opted for the acoustic laid back feel. Acoustic albums can often he a hit or miss affair. They've succeeded in maintaining your interest throughout with a variety of musical styles and keeping the percussion to a minimum. Like good cooking, the simple ingredients when blended together often produce the best, tastiest meals. The title track even features a 10 string Peruvian mandolin and a mandola (not Nelson!). The result? A song that would create in your mind summer days, enjoying life. etc. It has a good beat too. This is an album Tom Pelty should have released but he can't because Kevin and Bryn have! Now go and buy it.
