I was very pleased to say the least to receive this CD to review. It's been a long time in the musical wilderness for Mr Eisley, and this album sees his welcome return to the melodic rock scene. Most readers will be aware of David's past associations with Giuffria, suffice to say this guy is basically a vocal 'god', with his vocals set very much apart from most others in the AOR genre, offering up a breathy, earthy style that never ceases to amaze. This current project features a host of seasoned musicians, but the most pleasant surprise is that the man himself does a bit of a Jeff Cannata, by playing most of the instruments himself, and a mighty fine job he does too. David handles production himself, and in todays climate an admirable result is achieved, with a very full lush sound, dressed up by the layers of swirling synths ever present in the background.

The Songs
Basically, what we have here is an inevitable cross between Giuffria and Dirty White Boy. There is a mixture of styles that are at times hard hitting, like 'Stranger From The Past' and 'Can't Call It Love', and on others it becomes mellow and stripped back, like the ballad 'Sing Brother'. In between we find stunning tunes set in the same vein as the second Giuffria album 'Silk And Steel'. Just listen to 'Don't Turn Away' to see what I mean. On some of the tracks you get a blues rock based feel, but this should in no way detract from any fans of DGE.

In Summary
If you are a fan of the man, then I recommend this heartfelt piece of music being given a place in your collection. The more I listen to it, the more I like it, and the subtle genius of Mr Eisley is unmistakable.
