Former Arc Angels' Doyle Bramhall II's debut is a lovely piece of art. He's from the Austin school of Blues Rock. But unlike most Austin Blues Rock, this has a lot of Soul influences, as well as a lot more detail in arrangements and instrumentation. And, thankfully, no straightforward Texas Blues Rock.
Listening to this record is almost like being hypnotized. The music just takes you away from the real world, into Doyle's little universe of spellbinding songs. And there's also plenty of Southern feeling to the music. The atmosphere is somewhat melancholic, but the songs have enough bite to stay captivating. The production is splendid, as is the playing. And Doyle's voice sounds very pleasant. I sure do recommend this record. It's been discontinued by its manufacturer, but I saw a copy on Amazon at the nice price of $222.79. That's rather steep. So, maybe you need to check it out first?
