The Day the World Stopped and Spun the Other Way

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Remember how startlingly like his late father Julian Lennon sounded on his first single, "Valotte"? Well, the undeniable truth is that Texas-born singer/songwriter Colin Gilmore's South Plains twang is equally similar to that of his semi-legendary father, Lubbock mystic Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Yet, overall, Gilmore's debut album, The Day the World Stopped and Spun the Other Way, is strong enough and different enough (in a way that Julian Lennon's albums never were) from his dad's body of work that the vocal comparison becomes beside the point.

(The album's other cover is a straightforward and unfortunately rather pointless version of the Clash's "White Man in Hammersmith Palais," which at least shows admirable bravado.) Gilmore has a knack for catchy choruses, and the album's loose, live-in-the-studio sound suits the unpretentious tunes.
