Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Keaton is an artist in the truest sense of the word… music, poetry, art, film… all are works of staggering sorrow for him, and far beyond his age of 23. There are few vehicles that he cannot master to his will. He has courageously clearly tapped into a world that few can or will venture to. And he has provided us all a passageway.

Review

"Both beautiful and unbearable... one of the most compelling singer songwriters we ve heard in ages." --The Sunday Times

Format: Audio CD
Keaton Henson's debut album, Dear, was a delicate heartfelt album of one man, his guitar and a lot of pain and care. This follow up is the sound of him expanding that sound slightly. Its almost like listening to a painfully shy man emerge, gain confidence and then retreat again. Like the man himself? Perhaps. But during this album that's the journey you will hear.

Early on the sound is eerily similar to the first album. Electric Guitar, that voice and not much else on Teach Me and the beautiful 10AM, Gare Du Nord. In fact it comes as a total shock when listening to The Best Today that the delicate approach is enhanced by drums and more noise. It feels that the man himself wants to try and mix things up and Don't Swim follows this and does the job. Starting in the usual mode of vocal and guitar Henson then decides to throw in a loud and brash guitar and drums instrumental piece towards the end of the track. It sounds like something almost Post Rock like. Its a wonderful addition.
Kronos then swaggers into view and could be on any rock album, snarling riffs and loud quiet approach this could be grunge music. Or maybe something Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith or similar company would consider too brash for their albums when they were making them. The Beekeeper has Banjo, drums and keyboards and sounds a little like some Fleetwood Mac tracks in its composition and chorus - think mid 70's country influenced Fleetwood Mac here though. Gradually though the noise and mood recedes and whilst Sweetheart, What Have You Done To Us has a return to the more introspective approach before horns take over.

As a second album this is a treat. Its definitely a step forward, a very interesting one too. There is an air of confidence and belief here. It will be interesting to see whether he retreats again or moves more towards the approach of drums and horns alongside his guitar. However, this is as good as the first album and I never thought I would say that.

It is an honor of the highest order to be given the chance to share in another person's most private thoughts. In Keaton Henson's case, we are being shown his broken heart - what an honor!

I have listened to this album over and over, and the intimacy doesn't diminish one little bit. He just keeps digging deeper into his pain and, in the most beautiful, painful music I have ever heard, he shows us the pieces of his heart.

In the best of circumstances he is incredibly shy - almost incapacitated by it - yet he is willing to step out into the world, in order to share the beauty of his pain with us.

While I am sorry he has suffered so in life, I am blessed to be witness to, and recipient of the resulting work of art his music is.

If you get the chance, go to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert on You Tube and watch Keaton's show. It will both bless, and break your hearts.

I must go now, I think I will listen to some more of this man's heart.

Great Album, this has some new sounds for Keaton, but I can guarantee that these are all positive changes and still has that original Keaton Henson we love.
