The Grand Reveal
Mike Malins third album, titled Grand Reveal.. And grand it is! Sprouting up from the spring of 2013, this is an album worth taking the time to listen to. With vocals compared to that of David Bowie and distinctive tones of Leonard Cohen and the Psychedelic Furs echoing out from this heart felt album, Mike Malin graces us with his own unique take on a combination of all these influences..
With Marlin, the Listening Post Blog believes that its a case of either getting him or not… The Listening Post read a review and chose to quote from that review as it summed up their thoughts exactly:
“On an initial listen Grand Reveal comes across as a competent affair musically and in lyrical terms borders on cliche. Even at this point though, the listener retains some sense that there’s something there and with repeated listens the album opens up and becomes a much more rewarding experience. After the first couple of tracks the album really begins to take hold. From ‘War to Begin’’s urgency, ‘Amazing’’s expansive refrain or ‘Giving It All Away’’s infectious vocal the album transforms into one of real quality and depth.Read more: http://music.thedigitalfix.com/content/18726/mike-marlin-review.html#ixzz2wDz5q1My”
