Prashanth Technical, yet accessible and filled with terrific melodies. This is an album that warrants multiple listens to truly appreciate the nuances. Can't stop humming Spy in the Sky all day along, Favorite track: Spy In The Sky Part 1.

David Temby Last Chance To Hear is a fine follow-up to Ben's previous album "Great And Terrible Potions". Much of the music is instrumental (although Ben has a fine singing voice). One song as you may know features "vocals" by Willlam Shatner, this works surprisingly well - that song took me a few listens to get into but after hearing the alternate version with Ben's own vocals I understand why Ben likes Shatner's version. The artwork is by Freja Dean and is gorgeous. This is a gem - highly recommended! Favorite track: Last Chance To Hear Part 1.

Craigory Bacon Loosely a concept album about the end of the music industry as we’ve known it, this album features William Shatner, prog-a-billy, a spot-on James Bond theme, and even a lovely piano elegy. It’s also a contender for best album art and packaging, with gorgeous designs by Freyja Dean. Cinematic, progressive, singer-songwriter with lush production. Favorite track: Spy In The Sky Part 2.

A scourge of the city I spy in the sky The gale blows me to my knees The dog at my throat and the dog at my feet Never can be appeased A train on the wrong track is running downhill A pillar between the lines The ship beats the wave but the wave beats the ship everytime A solitary morning is waiting to share The dog barks throughout the day From breakfast to dinner he gnaws to the bone Companion who makes his prey Late at night fresh flies are put to my head Hindering me from sleep Dreaming of rest which I scarcely expect anytime
All he can see is parody All he can hear is forgery In the golden age of promoting the empty page The remarkable man will cure it all His target in sight is all around The constant barrage of hollow sound The empty shell he wishes he knew less well The remarkable man will cure it all Forced to subsist in cactus land Pushed to the edge by soulless bands Revenge he'll wreak delivered in tunes he'll leak The remarkable man will cure it all
