Songs For Mr Sloane – Strange Days

Listening to Strange Days you get the impression that Peter Dale and Guy Snook have a genuine passion for their craft: the release is well formulated, the lyrics well written and each melody and hook carry the impression that they have been thoroughly thought through.
The first track of the record Silence immediately had me hooked, with an easy listening sound comparable to Doves or Elbow, I was excited to see what the rest of the record had to offer. I was slightly disappointed by the rest of the album as although the quality of song writing is sustained throughout there is something perhaps a little too thought through about the record as though it slots together almost too neatly.
Songs For Mr Sloane are undoubtedly not short of enthusiasm or care for the music they produce, however, this release is lacking that certain spark it needs to take it to larger audiences.
