Michael Weston King - A New Kind of Loneliness
Label: Floating World Records
Format: CD


Unappealing and unimaginative pop-country on new album from Mancurian-based singer-songwriter Michael Weston King

It’s easy to be snide about music you don’t like. It’s easy to write bad reviews, and I take no pleasure in it. Sometimes it has to be done anyway, so here goes. This is awful. Simply awful. I’ve tried to find something positive to say about it but I can’t. Where the lyrics aren’t terminally dire they are merely trite. The instrumentation is plodding and unimaginative pop-country-lite. And the best you can say about the vocals is that the singer at least has confidence in his own abilities. This all reaches its dire apogee on ‘Saturday’s Child’, apparently an ode to the singer’s child who he won’t see now until Saturday. Anyone who can stand to listen more than twice to the chorus “Daddy, daddy don’t you cry; Daddy, daddy don’t say goodbye” is a better man than me. I would like to apologise to Mr King for being so down on him, but this is like being subjected to a stranger’s mid-life crisis set to music.
