Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Although not as hipster-sanctioned as kindred spirits Elliott Smith and Mary Lou Lord, this long, lanky singer/songwriter inhabits similar territory, unspooling smart, seductive tales that are alternately guileless and knowing. As a teenager, Dunnery fronted prog-rock outfit It Bites, but there's little of that pomp in evidence on his solo records--although the clever arrangements do include colorful snippets of brass, accordion, and even mellotron. This, his first outing since leaving the major label ranks, is probably Dunnery's most incisive collection yet, with sardonic gems like "Crazy Is a Pitstop" and "Give Up Your Day Job" guaranteed to elicit a double-take with every listen. --David Sprague

It's not often an artist is caught on tape in such fine form. 'Lets go do what happens' is a little inaccessable at first, but on further listening explodes into a beautifully constructed sound-scape. this his third album sees Francis mature; taking a more witty experimental approach in tracks like 'Crazy as a Pitstop' & 'Give up your day job'. The songs are weighted with complex layered sounds and an infectious positive message - the perfect antidote to an attack of the blues. Listening to 'Revolution' you get a real sense of sincerity on the artists part, through a mix of clever lyric and an emotional delivery. This is an album with a Lennonesque message for the 90's, to love yourself, believe in yourself and be yourself. This man has talent. Francis Dunnery has always been known for his exceptional skill on guitar, on 'Lets go do what happens' he shows us he is also a skilled singer/songwriter. I just can't wait to see what he'll come up with next. Buy it now.

This album did not live up to my expectations. Instead it hurdled me full-throttle into a new realm of consciousness.
Grasping for words to express the beauty of this album, I'm left to just say that Francis Dunnery knows his s***. Without a dull moment, Dunnery takes the listener on a wild ride to the moon and beyond life and death with a dazzling array of musical styles and grooves.
Dunnery is not shy about making Music That Matters. While most artists that attempt this come off as snobish, Dunnery's confession-style wit is delivered without a trace of pretense. The message, is overwhelmingly "you are what you believe you are." To Dunnery, misery is optional, and this emphasis on spirituality is terrifically infectious. The message is aptly mixed with unusual imagery to keep you listening and entertained.
Do yourself a favor and go get this album.

Forget for a second about the new age, self-help lyrics Francis Dunnery thorws-- though they are very good. Let't Go Do What Happens is filled with great music.

Basically rock songs, the album is rich with grinding guitars, thick synthasizers, and brass that alternates between jazz and soul. Dunnery's music is not particually complex, but is textured, layred, and most important, genuine. He is a rocker, but one who can make his rock swing, loop and happily hollar. There is not a ballad on here, but these cookers have the melody and bouyancy of the best pop.

Look at the cover, and you can tell Dunnery is an eccentric who does not give a witt about what you think of him, but you can't help but love the nutty optimism he exudes here.

Great album

If you are familiar with Francis Dunnery's other albums --- all of them well worth getting --- this is another one that you need to add to your collection. Although I wouldn't rank it as high as his first two albums ("Fearless" being my favorite), or the excellent "Man", there are still some brilliant moments to be heard on this CD.

Once again, Dunnery's distinctive voice dominates, serving as the perfect "instrument" to power these guitar-based tunes. He is both a skilled lyricist and has a knack for writing songs with hooks, yet not ones that don't aren't overflowing with too much pop sweetness. There is grit and gravity in those hooks. To my ears, Dunnery is one of the most consistently good, yet underrated singer-songwriters in the past couple of decades. He doesn't record a lot of albums, but the quality is always high. This one is no exception.

Perhaps you can either make great music or grow older and get comfortable with yourself. The latest release by Dunnery, the gifted British songwriter/guitarist, positively reeks of contentment and self-acceptance. Witness this line from "Perfect Shape" - "I want you by my side to throw that perfect shape inside of me . . . together, together, together, so we can be free". Those familiar with "Tall Blonde Helicopter," his brilliant 1995 release, should prepare themselves for some initial disappointment.
Unfathomably, the disc leads off with some of the hardest yet weakest tracks. The intent seems to be to position Dunnery as a commercially viable pop guitarist. The result is to demonstrate how hard it will be for the man who wrote "I Don't Want To Be Alternative" to grow beyond the noncommercial niche he has created for himself. The music stands up fairly well, but the lyrics are derivative and unengaging, creating an artistic imbalance. On second thought, maybe it does stand a chance of commercial success.
Not until the fourth track, " Crazy is a Pitstop," does Dunnery display the combination of quirky lyricism and high-energy musicianship that defined "Helicopter".
"Jonah," a passable if uninspired ballad, is followed up by the goofy and airy "Riding on the Back." The disc really takes off with "I'95," a guitar-driven rocker that offers Dunnery at his best - a raw, accessible sound with infectious riffs and lyrics worth your attention.
