Album Name: On a Shingle Near Yapton
Artist: David Francis
Year/Label: 2011 / Monochrome Museum
Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
I’ve reviewed David Francis in the past, and his new album is a strong effort. He has a singular style and a way with words.
Dream London is a fittingly dreamy effort, Francis’ vocal supported by guitar and strings.
Song of the Earth is a sensitive, eco-friendly song that Francis and his collaborator John Mono handle well.
Shores of Inhumanity has surreal yet believable lyrics about man’s inhumanity and a tune that’s memorable.
Anthem for Green England closes the album on a good note, Francis painting a picture of a world desired.
It’s a good record and then some.
