CD Review: Lee Penn Sky - Prelude To Hindsight
Lee Penn Sky - Prelude To Hindsight
2006, Lee Penchansky
The term Americana is applied to many variations on styles in music that is has become almost meaningless. That aside, Lee Penn Sky offers his own home-backed slice of Americana in Prelude To Hindsight. Featuring strong bluegrass/folk styling on the acoustic guitar, Lee Penn Sky adds his rootsy voice to primarily mellow songs. Solid songwriting and professional production values culminate in a highly listenable Prelude.
My favorite track here is One And The Same, which has a bit of southern rock flavor to it. Best Will Show is also a gem. The rest of the album for me is pleasant and well done, but just doesn't stand out to me as highly original or unique. Fans of mellow, country-tinged Roots music will find this quite enjoyable. I give it a positive recommendation.
Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)
