SONIC JIVE RADIO REVIEW

CUMBRIAN MUSICIANS CUT TO THE BONE aka (DEAN) recently released album,continues to demonstrate a fine blend of Rock,Funk and Latin music,with other miscellaneous surprise influences thrown into the mixture throughout. The album is a comprehensive example of a musical world view,the percussion section offers a tightly syncopated series of funk patterns,complemented by befitting bass lines while the guitars both rhythm and  solo fill out the bulk of the albums rock and funk influences. The album itself shifts the mood throughout the lists between tracks,each song in order of the mood.

..................................

DEAN A MUSICIAN ALWAYS WORTH LISTENING TO,DEAN professes a kind of swash exuberance. More importantly though,as sole producer and writer DEAN shines with his compositions.The result is a beautiful and convincing achievement. The new CD is shaped with his eccentricity free overtones over all the boldly swash choruses.With amazing themes and contractive passages pertaining to life and humanity.Even more the composers free form technique appears to be rooted upon a complicated but never the less discernible layout.This release is a captivating enterprise gorgeous.
