Overview

Justin Clayton is an interesting pop architect, one who's debut album Limb should turn some heads. Previously, Clayton was Julian Lennon's musical foil, writing and playing on tracks from Valotte, The Secret Value Of Daydreaming and other records. In recent years, he has been in the touring band for Tears For Fears. Most of the material in Limb, his solo debut is guitar-driven pop, yet with a subtle subtext of elegance, al-la The Zombies or more recent practitioners such as Jason Falkner. The songwriting is first rate. Most of the songs are episodic, with a definite feeling self-examination, and his sense of craft is quite obvious. Songs like "Miles Away" bear this out. The guitars and overall sound of the record is pretty hard, and for the most part on your face, yet again, the subtlety of the material balances things out very well. "Tragic" is a gorgeous acoustic-based song that has a wonderful build, and its one of the finest arrangements on the record. Overall, an excellent debut. Not only is this a fine record, but it also shows incredible promise for the future.
