FYFE DANGERFIELD

Fly Yellow Moon

2010-03-06

This is the first solo release from Guillemots front man, Fyfe Dangerfield. I didn't want to like this, simply based on the guy's name; but the opening track blew me away. The catchy, piano-driven pop of "When You Walk into the Room" has "hit" written all over it. As far as the rest of this goes, it is sometimes quiet pop, such as "Firebird" and "High on the Tide". Sometimes it's mid-tempo stuff like "So Brand New". Sometimes it is a little more rock, like "She Needs Me" or the Coldplay sound-alike "Faster Than the Setting Sun". Overall, this is catchy pop rock, featuring nice production and Fyfe's sometimes shaky (though not in a bad way) vocals. Rebecca Ruth
