THE VESTIGES AND CLAWS OF JOSE GONZALEZ

ALBUM REVIEW           :        VESTIGEs AND CLAWS

ARTIST                         :        JOSE GONZALES

GENRE                           :        POP / FOLK

DATE OF RELEASED    :        2015

The album begins with “With The Ink of A Ghost” which reminds you of many seventies songs like those popularized by Seals and Crofts, Bread, and England Dan and John Ford Cawley.  The second song “Let It Carry You” will make you think about “Every Breath You Take” by The Police where the bass figured prominently in the song.  In “Stories We Build, Stories We Tell,” you are treated with a sullen song that will make think of Simon and Garfunkel during their “Bridge Over Troubled Water’ days.

Yes, the album is quite a relief if you are too exposed with loud music and wanted to hear something pleasant to your ear but not too corny and trite in terms of lyrics.  Do not expect songs like “Beautiful” or any John Mayer type of songs in this record.  Do not look for feel good music in here as most songs are quite introspective.

This is a good record to listen to during a relaxing Sunday moment.  With that I rate this record 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Ratings Description:

1 star = Ignore it

2 stars= risk it

3 stars = borrow or buy it

4 stars = buy it and keep it

5 = buy, keep, and treasure it
