Reviews For Gospel Noir
Bradford has gone out on his own with Gospel
Noir, an attempt to provide country music with an updated, contemporary
sound that incorporates some jazz, pop and gospel. the pedal steel by
John Hyland is never far away, always providing that country flavour,
especially on his remake of the Those Kodiaks song 'Routine'. Another
instrument that is heavily used on these quirky songs is the keyboard/piano
of Sean Timms (Mondo Rock). Except for the country flavour,
Gospel Noir is much like a Kodiaks album with wonderful pop songs and
intelligent lyrics. Highlights are the perfect harmonizations of Bradford
and Denise Alexander-Grieve on several songs, the homage 'The Young John
Wayne' and stereotypical 'Edward Bear', about drunkenness and teddy bears.
A quality album with an unusual perspective on the usual subject matter.
Dirty Linen USA
