3 stars US act FARPOINT has been around in one form or another since 1997, when Kevin Jarvis and Rick Walker hooked up and decided to form a band. They have been active as a live and recording unit ever since, with 5 full-length albums to their name. The most recent of these is "Kindred", which was issued by the US label 10t Records in the summer of 2011.

Neither demanding nor challenging in any manner worth mentioning, spirited and positive moods is the name of the game for Farpoint on their latest production. Accessible compositions with an emphasis on melodies where the acoustic guitar is the main provider of lead motifs prevail. Subtle details from folk music and symphonic art rock flavour the arrangements, and occasional sophisticated structural manoeuvres add an art rock dimension to the proceedings. By and large an album that should appeal to those who enjoy advanced singer/songwriter material in my opinion; most songs possess just as much appeal to a mainstream-oriented audience as to one with their main preferences within the art rock universe.
