Review by Steven Digman
Using the playing knowledge of set hand positions (the musicians), and the voice passion position of condensed vocal energy, Singer/Songwriter Lesley Curtis has musically achieved a well-rounded (sounded) CD state of musical alignment.
This musical “SHOCK DELAYED” equilibrium begins with “Why Am I Still Waiting” (Co-written with Andy Nicholls). ‘Hear’ Curtis sings all the required information (the lyrical elements) into a complete singer/listener relationship, with all instruments played (please take note)… by Andy Nicholls.
“I Hold The Earth” (the ninth-track) features the guitar and keyboards of Nick Livesey, and includes a good form of sung lyrical adjectives, with the singing emphasis of well-controlled angular expression.
The final track “Natural Place To Be” is her best song, which has the best part of the song hidden in a harmonious arrangement at the end. A wonderfully crafted ballad of good Folk Blues that features once again – all instruments played, by Andy Nicholls.
Produced by Andy Nicholls and Lesley Curtis, SHOCK DELAYED is an eleven-track harmonic analysis of musical depth psychology that explores the Universal Life Force of Listening Pleasure…And it is, Vocally Reiki (Curtis is also a Reiki Master) – Good!
