Mike Marlin : Grand Reveal review

His revelatory Wolverhampton tour opener was sensational.

Now Mike Marlin – a former child prodigy, physics boffin and city whizzkid – releases a rock and roll album that may well be a contender in those year-end polls.

Lyrically astute but boasting user-friendly rock guitar, the likes of Grand Reveal and Giving It All Away nod to Leonard Cohen, while Skull Beneath The Skin could be a Queens Of The Stone Age out-take.

But it’s David Bowie to whom you’ll turn for the keynote, both War To Begin and Amazing among the best here.

It'll have to be a good album to better this in the coming months.
