The intro's...

The intro's overkill of vocal reverb was a shame. Compared to, 'Hurt the one you love' (a track that uses equilibrated reverb in combination with the guitar), this track is overkill. Nonetheless, you can say that Dutton is exploring different styles, which creates tracks with a wide musical variety. 'So softly we speak' has lovely a chorus, but this is comprised by the reverb mess. Nonetheless, this song has got strong character and an unique style and it's really not too shabby at all.

'Hurt the o...

'Hurt the one you love..' is moody, sullen and gloomy but so beautiful. Phil Dutton's track has some magnificent and peaceful guitar, delicious reverb singing intertwined within this dark track. As for the lyrics, they are very romantic and you can indisputably hear Dutton's vocal passion. The production quality is top-notch, as keeping that metallic twang of the guitar fits so well with the aforementioned reverb. 'Hurt the one you love..' is truly a great, soft yet dark track that is most certainly worth a listen.
