Review - Finlay Morton - Back To Basics

Finlay Morton - Back To Basics

View The Review

7 out of 10

Back To Basics is drenched in gorgeous Hammond and classic guitar sounds. Finlay Morton has written a collection of agreeable tracks here, which are based around true to life experiences. Some songs are drenched with a feel that is reminiscent of artists like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, and others have a real Lynrd Skynrd, Eagles kind of feel. Standout tracks include 'Real Long Day' which is soaked in emotive lyrics and, 'The Circus', which has a great vibe running through it. The mixes and the production on the album are great as well.

Morton's dedication can't be faulted, after suffering a heart attack; he still endeavoured to finish the album, and came up with something that I'm sure will have a positive impact on many people.
