Richard Hawley has gone… astral. The familiar warm and tender growl has always been at the forefront of his sound, but with his sixth studio album Standing At The Sky’s Edge it becomes part of the mix and the heavy use of echo means it mostly sounds as if he’s singing from the depths of a cave. Lyrics definitely take a back seat.
The album plays with psychedelia, space rock and ragas, with heavy riffs and raw, visceral guitar solos thrown in, confirming that Hawley is, as everyone knows, a superb guitarist.
But the overall result is not altogether satisfying: some of the tracks seem overlong, as if the temptation to thrown in just a few more special effects has taken over from crafting a coherent piece of music., although that’s not to say there aren’t some really good moments. …
