Beautiful Scarlet
4 stars Great Album.

The first few songs are ok~ 3/5

The highlights that bring this up are Keep On Caring, Emily, Halfway Between Heaven, Earth, Five Go Wilde, Flowered and Didn't Matter Anyway.

Keep On Caring is a great show of what Richard Sinclair does, thick bass lines and soft vocals that cradle the music.

Emily is a beautiful song, strong singing and excellent instrumentation with a gorgeous saxophone bridge

The Falafel Shuffle, like the name suggests is a quirky song, fortunately, it's an instrumental. The song I think is memorable and adds a nice respite from vocals, allowing Richard to work in a different style.

The last four songs are one lovely suite, playing into one another seamlessly to form a cohesive piece.

Halfway is a Hatfield song that wasn't recorded on any albums, but can be found on the rereleased Rotters Club as an extra track. Five Go Wilde andDidn't Matter Anyway Five Go Wilde and Flowered are instrumentals that connect Halfway to the classic Didn't Matter Anyway.

Great album, brought down a little by some average songs at the beginning. If you can tolerate them, then definitely keep listening. Overall, just shy of four stars.

Beautiful Scarlet | 4/5 |
