 Best album of 2010

| | See all chelsealabrador's reviews (1)

It really is a musical travesty that this guy isn't a household name. The James Blunt it's okay to like. I defy anyone to listen to the words to "Panic" and not marvel at a great songwriting talent and a superb live performer as well.
Earlier albums are superb also.

 More of the same...

...but when every album is full of musical and poetic genius, more of the same is a wonderful thing!!!

 To Hell With tThe World!

Top 100 Music Reviewer

It truly saddens me that an artist as talented and wonderful as David Ford gets almost no recognition for his talent. His songs are crafted with such care and attention, his voice is a beautiful mix of pain and passion, his lyrics are detailed and decorated with heartbreaking stories of love, loss, religion, politics, society and war.

A fine example of his way with words would be from the albums opener 'Panic'... "Swagger dripping from the stage, Curse the impatience of the age. It all takes time, time is money, money talks, talk is cheap". Its clever and its just the simple use of four of the most common sayings used.

'To Hell With The World' a beautiful heart wrenching commentary on life today.

'Stephen' a song most certainly for the Irish. singing so intelligently and with great passion about the war between the north and repubic irelands. Use of facts and a more clever word play.

Not all the songs are heart breaking, though the meaning often is. 'Making Up For Lost Time' is a rather up beat song. despite its unhappy undertone.

and the very clever, 60s beach party, surfer rock style number "Surfin' Guantanamo Bay' again a very very dark song, but up beat and with clever word play. "Grab your waterboard and meet us down at camp xray, everybody go surfin guantanamo bay"

All in all David Ford is a young, intelligent artist with style, sincerity, passion and an overabundance of talent.

 Back on form

It is still shock that David Ford is not more widely known. This album see Ford back on form, a seriously heart rendering, bile throwing, beautiful set of songs. This album captures his rawness more, something that is in abundance in his live shows. There are also a few nods to Tom Waits, and that can never be a bad thing... A must for any serious music lovers collection.
