Prog Reviewer
2 stars With a muddled track listing (who puts a bonus track remix in the middle of their album's running order?), The Kentish Spires' debut album finds them occupying a hinterland between fusion and Canterbury and folk with mild elements of each, but the ingredients don't quite come together in a pleasing fashion for me. Tossing out lyrics about incursions of foreigners polluting Kentish bloodlines is a bit of a dogwhistle, at that, and in general the band seem to be throwing a lot of ideas at the wall and seeing what sticks here. It's got promising aspects, but they need to decide what flavour of Canterbury they actually want to gun for, because trying to cram in everything from 1960s pop a la early Caravan to long fusion-tinted epics into a single album is just coming across as messy here.
Warthur | 2/5 |
