Life in Slow Motion

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: David Gray (Musician); Producer (group): ATO

Life in Slow Motion, indeed, but David Gray’s seventh CD does ingratiate itself after repeat listens, in an Astral Weeks-like way. Unfortunately, the hypnotic drum-‘n’-bass beats that augmented his earnest singer-songwriterdom on White Ladder are gone, leaving us with…earnest singer-songwriterdom. Your brunch pals will not flee in horror from this omelette-enhancing soundtrack, nor, most likely, will they rush out to buy it.
