A New Kind of Loneliness

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
On his seventh solo recording, the onetime founder and lead singer/songwriter of Britain's popular alternative country band the Good Sons continues to celebrate the art of crafting songs that are all at once arena rock engaging, folksy, lyrically pointed, and a lot of fun. For the most part, he's in full traditional low-key heartfelt strumming troubadour mode -- most notably on reflective tunes like the dramatic "The Last Hurrah," "My Heart Stopped Today" (featuring gorgeous harmony vocal and instrumental contributions by Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen), and "This Man Can Break So Easily."

His pop-Cajun jaunt "Let the Waves Break on Your Face" shows off King's spirited rock side as well. The two bonus track demos feature the singer's James Taylor-esque voice with minimal accompaniment, allowing him to share his rich emotion and romance largely unadorned.
