NAME: Stephen Dale Petit
ALBUM: The Crave
LABEL: Universal Music
FIVE WORD REVIEW: Impressive guitars but little else
LINE UP: Stephen Dale Petit
WHAT’S THE STORY?: Although ‘The Crave’ is undeniably well produced and it contains some fantastic examples of Blues guitar, there seems to be a lack of direction in the album. Some tracks feel like out and out blues numbers, others with their gospel choirs feel like soul music, there are jazz numbers, while other tracks feel like classic rock. Though this attempt to bridge genres is admirable the lack of cohesion makes the album feel extremely disjointed and not all these genres are competently accomplished.
SOUNDS LIKE: A collection of singles designed to demonstrate Petit’s versatility rather than a record that flows.
YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You like to be impressed by guitar riffs and the other musical components are less integral to your enjoyment
