Folk World – 15th November 2011

Liam Blake takes a folk-pop approach to his singer-songwriter material. There is also a lush quality to the pop, but it is on the lighter side. The opening cut “For Your Sake” works best for me with its quivering vocals and thoughtful melody. However, things are a little safe thereafter and the music reminds me a bit of Kenny Rankin. Not that that is a bad thing, but you have to like that type of sound to fully appreciate the songs here. There are some nice moments in “Tell Me Beth, Do You Recall?” and “Show Me the Way to the Sun” with its lilting melody lines. So Liam Blake is well worth a listen. – David Hintz
