Due to circumstances, this CD has been lying on my office desk for quite some time and Matt Charles had to exercise some patience to read our findings. Maybe he didn't expect our review any longer, but even if it took a little time, due to a growing waiting list for the moment, I finally managed to do it.

Matt Charles is from Tasmania, which is all the way at the other end of the planet for us. Because there is so much nature and so little "occupied" world, it also means there a very small audience for his music. Like many musicians from Australia and New Zealand for instance, he moved. Very close to us as a matter of fact, Hamburg in Germany is now where he's operating from.

First and foremost, I must say that this is a very strong debut and a strong singer-songwriter, roots-rock album, full of honest, powerful songs. This group rocks....they are friends for years, and the performances radiate the fun they are having.

"Sacred Heart", is a song where the tension builds up and it shines like a little jewel. A song that grows on you with every listen. "I Will Not Break You" floats on a hypnotic beat, while "Ashes" slowly reveals the dark melody slowly around the text. "Don't Kiss Me" is equally intriguing; here is a strong songwriter at work. Assisted by the sheer force of his band, and especially by guitarist Andrew Gatenby, who is an additional asset to this really strong record.

You notice when you carefully listen to this album, Matt is a real "song smith". He proposes and weighs every word and then brings them together like pieces of the puzzle, or better said, he's like a craftsman creating a colourful, beautiful mosaic of sounds.

Music and text never get in the way of each other, which almost creates perfection.
