New album by Neil Campbell and Stuart Todd
Reviewed by Alicia Rose
Campbell Todd have just released their self-titled new album and so, be first in line to know that with its release comes a listening of the shared ideal to settle back, relax and indulge in some easy-going sentiment.
Neil Campbell and Stuart Todd have graciously joined together in song and melody to bring a multifarious collection of eleven tracks which move me gently through visceral lyrics and genuinely intimate notes of classical harmony.
The artistic pairing of these two studious fellows has helped produce a laudable album that percolates. At its best this album is Sunday morning refrain, late night under song and lazy Monday afternoon acoustic. It’s ennobling on the ear and for anyone who appreciates modern classical bustle, then this album is definitely worth its six pound price tag. Tracks such as Ways to Pass Time, Dance Like a Star and Entangled are genuinely warm and compassionate and as a listener you will feel their eloquence. The album is available online through CD baby and www.myspace.com/campbelltodd and is also on sale in the Green Fish/Domino Gallery on Upper Newington in the City Centre.
