5 stars What a delicious album, the music here is so gentle it goes with anything. It exudes a calm yet engaging demeanour that beckons me to it with a smile. The music truly matches it's beautifully entrancing artwork (who is the green guy!? Fella needs to be adapted into media of some kind, aside from music of course)

If you've heard Greenslades follow up release or debut the music here is in the same vein, although Lawsons voice have achieved a nice in between of those albums styles (not as over the top as on the debut or subdued like on Spyglass). What separates this album from Greenslades other works is the uniform strength of its compositions all are thoroughly excellent. The tracks are also bolder with drum solos on Drum Folk adding a wonderful character to the track and good length to really complete each song to its best version.

Overall this is an excellent album, that handles the flow of tracks perfectly, alternating vocal track/instrumental thrice and going into one another smoothly. Recommended to fans of more laidback melodic music like Camel, Rare Bird or Caravan.

Beautiful Scarlet | 5/5 |
