      But not as good

      I have to say that I'm quite bored of these one man acoustic acts who play a mixture of folk and normally tell dull little love songs. The genre has been pillaged of late and a quick listen to slicethepie will confirm this by showing that 1 out of 3 artists seems to be performing similarly sounding songs.

      Unfortunately Ben Taylor's music fits that category, fortunately the lyrics are much better than his contemporaries.

      Ben Taylor comes from good stock, his father is of course the legendary James Taylor whilst his mother Carly Simon isn't too bad either! Whilst not as good as either of his folks in my book, he's definitely one of the better acts in the American folk pop genre and is reminiscent of Jack Johnson when he was really on form.

      Gentle guitar accompanies Ben Taylor's soft vocals, the guitar playing is nothing to write home about but the lyrics are rather witty and I enjoy the likes of "Wicked Way" purely because of this.

      This album is quite poppy and therefore should have had more success than it did,the name may have been a little offputting, making it sound like some odd Japanese brand of folk music, it's nothing of the sort - just standard acoustic fair with a smooth sound and above average lyrics, the kind of music you expect to find gracing bookshops and cafes in the near future.
