Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE DREAM LOGIC

My Black Arts

2014-07-27

  The Dream Logic is basically a trio, but for its second release, My Black Arts, they had a little help from their friends. Notable guests include Vernon Reid (Living Color), and Eric Krasno (Soulive and Lettuce). The musicianship is exemplary on this guitar-driven blues album.  The guitar solos are tasty, yet tastefully short. The percussion, bass, and keys are spot-on without stealing the spotlight. My only problem with this is with Charles Compo's lead vocals, which come off as nasally and short of range.  I would like this quite a bit if it were instrumental or if Compo would give up singing and let drummer/backing vocalist Camille Gainer take over. The Dream Logic is promising, but it could be oh so much better.   Rebecca Ruth
