A two-man duo from Sheffield which is built around the voice and songs of Harry Steele. Harry has excellent vocal style, an earthily expressive voice with affecting ascents into falsetto. He plays acoustic guitar while fellow band member plays percussion. With such a stripped down sound there's particular focus on the songs and they're rather good - "Moments" is a series of youthful images - the winter's first snow, losing 16-nil at football, the day the singer met the Lord. "Blood Of The Innocent" is a telling look at the power of Jesus' passion and there are two more good songs well sung as well.

I have seen King Quentin several times and they are an excellent and very entertaining band - this is a better review than their last album received and deservedly so! - However the reviewer should take time to ensure his review is accurate and there really is no excuse for getting the band members names wrong! For the record Jo has the "excellent vocal style" and Harry "plays percussion".
