I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Background
Listening to a Kyle Vincent album is like opening a time capsule buried away in the early '70s. Dig it up, break it open and you'll find dusty 45's by Seals & Crofts, Looking Glass, Gallery, The Carpenters and Bread, as well as memories of cherry popsicles and the smell of freshly mowed lawns on a hot hazy summer afternoon. Vincent has always had a knack for writing great pop conjuring up reflections of the above and not forgetting his work on the amazing and shamefully still not on CD 'Whatever Happened to Fun' album with the group Candy, but on 'Where You Are' Kyle has exceeded all expectations with his best album to date.


The Songs
From the first bars of 'It's Gonna Be A Great Day' I'm in a better place with economic recessions, traffic jams, annoying co-workers and other life issues flying out the window. Beautiful stuff, swirling in colours and warm feelings with 'The World Is Upside Down' as uplifting as it gets with shades of David Gates at his very best and I really can't say enough about the title track which comes off like Bobby Goldsboro updated for a new century. Vincent seems to have an encyclopedic knowledge of what made mellow gold of the 1970's so very special, shaking up his influences in the bright sunshine and setting it free. Cleverly, Kyle splits the song listings with a side one and two and I love the falsetto and The Four Seasons take on 'It's A Lonely World', but for those who think this album is purely a 'me decade' exercise/time trip will find solace in the song 'On My Ride' which is pure Air Supply and just one of the many highs on a disc that every household should own.


In Summary
Three months into the year, but I'm certain 'Where You Are' will easily slide into my top ten of 2009. Now, if only someone will reissue the Candy album.
