Review by apps79
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Australian self-taught guitarist/keyboardist from Brisbane, who's early career included many small bands, all though unable to satisfy Ben's anxious spirit.In 2005 he released the album ''False idols'' under the Tunisia moniker, soon to replace it with his birthname and eventually release a short EP, entitled ''Under deconstruction'', as a free downloadable album in 2007.

''Under deconstruction'' seems like a deep trully personal effort of Ben Craven to produce delicate acoustic soundscapes than to let his talent fully unfold and sufficiently introduce himself to the public.The opening ''Great divide'' is a great guitar/piano presentation with lovely vocals, which can set the listener to a dreamy mood, only to be spoiled by the dull ''Enough about you'' and his sort of boogie/rural atmosphere.''Captain caper'' is more of the same, though the nice late acoustic solo and more interesting vocals make it quite decent, while ''Look away'' is a typical ballad with no particular surprises and Craven's soft touch on the forefront.

This album marks just a Ben Craven presenation to the world of music and no more than that.Soft acoustic pieces dominated by Craven's guitar, easy-listening and very accesible to everyone, but far from his true musical spirit.Still some minutes of downloadable time are enough to judge for yourself around this EP.
