Gary Maginnis And The Like, Waiting On The Flood. Single Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

There are times when you look at the world of art and you wonder why nobody picks upon the ideals or the imagery laid down by American poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau; the natural world, a place where the scene of the pastoral and the thought of unexplored sexuality and regret can go hand in hand but not be seen as overbearing or tasteless, instead like Thoreau be seen as gentle, the quivering in the stanza reflecting a need to have a simpler life, one where beauty is celebrated but not overtly pushed or alienated.
