Review

Ian Tanner started his musical career in christian rock bands like The Awakening (1985-1989) and One Hundred Days (1990-2000), and after OHD split up, Ian worked as a producer and in 2009 he released his first solo album "Things to never say out loud". This year, his 2nd solo album "Italian waffles and scotch" came out and it´s nice 70´s powerpop album filled with plenty of harmony changes that would make Jellyfish proud. Just listen to "Undisclosed" and you´ll know what I mean, but the album´s uneven I´m afraid because his vocal performance doesn´t come out for the best on tracks like "Father like son" and "Ten cartwheels". But when Ian is showing strength in his songwriting like the Jellyfish-like "This started out a love song", his voice sounds so much better. The song "My situation" sounds like Jean Beauvoir on a picnic with Dan Reed, very cool. The best song is "Bitter" that in fact bring thoughts to Genesis Calling all stations album, pure progressive stuff.
