Review

Matt Nathanson, John Mayer, Howie Day, Dave Barnes, John DeGrazio, Shane Nicolson, Rod Davies, Joe Firstman... the list is longer than that with new modern singer songwriters... and the whole damn bunch of them are more or less good... and yes there are more of them to come... And this guy I write about here is one of the absolute best Ive heard in the last twelve months... Good damn what a great album this is. Very good acoustic driven songs with TONS of refrains all over the eleven tracks. Not one percent of originality, but who the hell cares when it is this good. Listen to the first song out, "When It Comes" and get stunned. What a refrain! And the album just continues in the same strong way of being. Phew. There is an eclectic group of producers that includes Rick Parker (Joe Firstman, Miranda Lee Richards), Paul Fox (10,000 Maniacs, The Wallflowers), Geza X (Meredith Brooks, Black Flag) and Scott Austin (who doubles as Tylers A & R representative at Maverick) delivering their best to the result. Do yourself a favour and listen to this man and his album if you love modern singer songwriters like your belowed editor in chief does. As I said, Tyler Hinton has not one percent of originality, but when you hear a song like "Rollin Home" you wont give a shit about that. The album is one of the better Ive heard in the genre for a long time. A top 15 contender for the Winberg top 20-list over 2004 years best albums. Without a doubt. The album will be released the 17th of August. Be at your recordstore the same day. Heureka.
