"Ear Candy" brilliant review of TJ's new CD

What transforms this from being a run-of-the-mill Singer/Songwritery record – and many of you will know my natural aversion to such work - is the incredibly deft orchestration which turns the, no doubt, worthy proselytising and the dangerously possible risk of self conscious introverted dreariness into pretty groovy music.

So, if you’re like me and just want your ear candy to provide a stunning background to your hopeless existence, you can rest assured that this one makes the grade and is well worth the effort to obtain a copy. You may even find yourself teetering towards paying some attention to the lyrics – I’m ashamed to admit that I’m leaning in that direction myself!

Was dies von den herkoemmlichen Vom-Laufband-Kommenden Singer/Songwriter CDs unterscheidet, und viele von euch kennen ja meine natuerliche Abneigung dagegen, ist die unglaublich geschickte Instrumentierung, die diese, zweifelsfrei preisverdaechtig bekehrende, verinnerlichte Duesterlichkeit in recht gute Musik verwandelt.

Also, wenn ihr so seid wie ich und moechtet, dass ein echter Ohrenschmaus den Hintergrund fuer eure hoffnungslose Existenz bietet, dann koennt ihr beruhigt davon ausgehen, dass diese CD genau dem entspricht und es ist es sicherlich wert hiervon eine CD zu erwerben.

Vielleicht macht ihr euch sogar die Muehe um bei den Texten genauer hinzuhoeren – ich muss zugeben, dass ich das auf jeden Fall tue.
