Ray Wilson - Makes Me Think Of Home album review
Thoughtful aching reflections from ex-Genesis singer Ray Wilson
The ex-Stiltskin and Genesis frontman has been busy, with steady touring schedules alongside this, his second album release of the year. Anyone familiar with his previous solo work, especially the most recent Songs For A Friend, won’t be surprised at the very personal, even confessional nature of many of the lyrics here. Vague Genesis stylings and the hard rock edge of some of Stiltskin’s material are largely absent, with most of the tracks being acoustic guitar or piano-led pop rock. The real power resides within voice and lyrics – a voice as reassuringly characterful and warm as ever.
