Customer evaluation for "Polyphonic Prayer (CD)"
7 Feb 2018

Pray hard

First impression from the cover - this boy don’t look well; looks like something I used to buy from 4AD back in the day. Still, it’s the platter that counts: 10 songs at 58 minutes and 2 things are apparent; Eric’s not bothering with a vinyl release, and still hasn’t got his head round “the single” edit, though a mighty cover of ZZ Top’s Waiting For The Bus is under 4 minutes (the only track). Eric has though got his head round the heavy pedal, but I think Eric’s bus must have been built by Caterpillar, not New Flyer.
Of the 10 tracks, Waiting For The Bus is one of 6 covers, Muddy Waters’ She 19 Years Old and B B King’s It’s My Own Fault should keep Blues purists interested, but done in the Gary Moore bombast style. Tim Wagoner’s Make It Rain is good, but a little overlong; should have been either Hammond or Guitar solo - both is a little over-indulgent when it’s Eric doing the playing.. More satisfying, and left-field, is the choice of Robin Schulz’ Unforgettable. A good swing has been taken at Donny Hathaway’s We’re Still Friends, Eric tapping back into Michael Burks. At least Etta James’ has been avoided.
From the originals, Tennessee is the stand-out. Picture Frame and Through Your Eyes are fine ballads, but too samey side-by-side. Can’t Go Back is another heavy track, but is very uneven; it’s sounds like the solo is the music equivalent of photo-shopped on, and not very well.
Overall, some good flashes; Eric is a good writer and dynamic player- keyboard and guitar but to my thinking, needs to work within a group or with a producer for discipline rather than allowed to give full rein to his indulgences.
