The Robe

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Marc Castellani
King becomes progressively stronger with this release, a much more upbeat collection than the more reflective Sticks and Stones. The Robe kicks off with two hard-hitting songs, but it is with the title track that King's abilities are fully displayed. "The Robe" is King's most powerful song yet, with a gorgeous melody and encouraging lyrics that are perfectly presented by Phil Naish's production.

"The Robe" is King's most powerful song yet, with a gorgeous melody and encouraging lyrics that are perfectly presented by Phil Naish's production.

Unfortunately, King seems to run out of steam at this point; the remaining songs are fine and often touching, but not as inspired as the first half. The Robe closes, however, with the emotionally powerful Renaissance-flavored "Holy," which rivals "The Robe" as King's crowning achievement to this point. King's natural abilities continue to be apparent, and he also demonstrates a willingness to improve his weaknesses that bodes well for future releases.
