Brian Cline Band Releases New Album
I developed a keen interest in Brian Cline's musical career last year when I reviewed his band's first CD, "Hold the Keys." I pointed out that all of the twelve tracks on that album are "of a soft, classic, folk-rock genre masterfully written, sung, and arranged by Brian" and in a later writing, "Brian's passion for music can be traced back to when he was five-years-old" and that "one day [he would] become a musician of excellence."
Now comes "Within Without" and there's a new twist: A little metal has been expertly provided by lead guitarist, Rob Sherman but not to the extent that it would compromise the band's original unhardened, beautifully performed folk-rock efforts. Everything's the same as before except now, it rocks! Aside from Rob's noteworthy distortion licks, Paul Batres' complicated drum timings are impeccably rhythmic and they've been masterfully enhanced by Andrew Lion's well-balanced blend of bass patterns.
Brian's vocals have also risen to a new level of professionalism in this CD project. A good voice is nothing unless the vocalist has the ability to convince the listener that he or she means it. Brian has no problem with that. His vocal outputs are very convincing.
"Within Without" is six well-written songs with real verses and bridges! This is where a lot of aspiring artists miss the boat. They spend too much time on effects and turn their backs on the mechanics of song writing . . . good melodies, cleaver verses, and strong, catchy hook bridges which repeat the track titles. Brian Cline and Company figured this out a long time ago and have become masters at it!
Tracks: Day to Day - Believe in Me - What's on My Mind - Sea of Lies - Within - In Slumber
