2 stars 'Chasing Monsters' - John Wesley (4/10)

The most versatile, but alas, the least memorable of John Wesley's discography, 'Chasing Monsters' sees the singer-songwriter (of Porcupine Tree fame) range from subtle acoustic work to blown up psychedelia, all the while maintaining his warm and intimate sense of delivery. While John Wesley is generally quite a consistent artist and the execution here is up to par, it feels like the songwriting here lacks something that was usually present on other works; a sense of emotional impact.

Perhaps it was a result of his experimentation with a wider range of sounds, but the signature style of warm storytelling and sweet melodies doesn't seem to be here in such a satisfying quantity. While going to ambitious lengths as to include mandolin and violin sounds here, it's quite surprising that the music doesn't have nearly as much of an effect on me as I would hope. While albums like the excellent 'Shiver' would go to prove what a talented singer- songwriter the man is as well as throw in the dynamic and progressive theme, 'Chasing Monsters' doesn't feel nearly as inspired a work. In fact, the only track here that really stands out is the title track, which is a very acoustically-driven song.

'Chasing Monsters' is arguably the weakest album in John Wesley's discography, but it still holds a few moments and tracks that impress. As a whole however, I do find myself a bit disappointed.
