Editorial Reviews

Entrance is the moniker of 21-year old guitarist/singer/songwriter Guy Blakeslee, former bassist of Baltimore's The Convocation Of... His debut has a very intimate feel and cavernous sound. The addition of minimal percussion, keyboards, organ, and piano provide an additional element to Entrance songs not found at his live shows. For fans of Leonard Cohen, T. Rex, Bob Dylan, and Skip James.

Entrance, real name Guy Blakeslee, is a rock prodigy and the most genuine artist since I can't remember when. His music is influenced by the old delta blues, such as Robert Johnson, but unlike other artists who simply try to imitate older music, Entrance keeps his influences in the back of his mind and lets his soul write the music. All the raw emotion packed into his tracks explodes from the radio and will overwhelm you. I would relate Entrance and his style, retro lyrics, and original guitar playing to that of the White Stripes. But, to be frank, Entrance blows Jack White out of the water. Entrance is who Jack White wants to be, tries to be, but never will be; he is a better, more innovative guitar player, better, more genuine songwriter, and has a much better voice than Jack's by far. This record is a must for anybody into the new rock scene of the Strokes, the White Stripes, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs and for those into classic rock and blues. Also, although the album is great it is nothing compared to Entrance's live performances, so an Entrance show is a must-see. Enjoy.

In an age of rock/blues revivalists such as the White Stripes, Entrance is like a breath of fresh air between so much that is artificial. From the beautiful yet bewildering opener of "Valium Blues," to the irreverent cover of Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," (here renamed to "Tommy Thumb's Summertime Blues,) this album is brooding with a mix of raw emotions.
With vocals that fall between Jeff Buckley and an all night speed binge, and some of the most original guitar work heard in years, 'The Kingdom of Heaven...' may not be an instant classic, but will surely be appreciated for years to come.

Guy Blakeslee's debut solo effort is, in a word, substantial. The album is undoubtably one of the best combinations of legitamate blues with a subtle folk influenced undertone. The music is all fairly unique, the guitar stye displayed here is very atypical, and very gripping. The lyrics on the originals are mostly a pleasant surprise, both clever, relevant, and wholly introspective. The cover songs are also very good, and are both at least as good as their original incarnations(if not possibly more interesting at times). Some say the singing is harsh, but I see it more as a mellow and heartfelt yelp, and I rather like it. This album is recommended mostly to fans of early delta-blues, but would also be recommended to fans of folk music(protest folk mostly). Conversely, I dont really recommend the album to those of an exclusively mainstream radio taste, this is not for you.
