Kershaw, Mike: Reason to Believe

Multi-instrumentalist Mike Kershaw, no longer recording under the obscure name "Relocate to Heathrow," played, sang and produced everything on Reason to Believe and it's clear he's got an electronics fixation. Kershaw's distinct but often monotone voice blends nicely with the synthesizers that dominate these songs, which sometimes sound like they came from a vault housing rejects by the Alan Parsons Project. Songs like "Testament" and "Mask and Cape" incorporate greater use of guitar and reveal more depth to Kershaw's delivery, and the three-part suite "The End of Love and War" suggests a desire to move in an even proggier direction.

This is a pleasant-enough listen. But Reason to Believe lacks much emotion no doubt thanks to a drum machine and a lack of tempo changes. Plus, at nearly 59 minutes, it's just too long.

1) False Hope
