Sayce, Philip: Steamroller

Philip Sayce hails from the Welsh town of Aberystwyth although he spent his formative years in Toronto, Canada. He pays tribute to his birthplace on the final song, surprisingly called "Aberystwyth". It's an instrumental, understated yet compelling, laid back yet urgent, smooth yet rough. It is by far the best thing on Steamroller. It's the best thing on Steamroller by a very long way unfortunately. That isn't to suggest that the rest of the record is bad, it's just bland. The singing is weak, the production a little flat and everything is just a bit disappointing (apart from the aforementioned "Aberystwyth" and the fiery "Stung by a Woman" when measured against the man's obvious talent. Back to the drawing board methinks.
