CD Review: Erick Macek - Just Right

Erick Macek - Just Right
2008, Erick Macek

Erick Macek is a great pop songwriter. It's clear from the opening notes of Just Right, his second CD due out in September 2008. Depending on the song Macek can sound like a 1970's Singer/Songwriter or a current day troubadour. Apparently one of the adherents top a modern less-is-more school of songwriting, Macek uses bare arrangements to display fine lyrical ability and strong melodies.

Hard To Call My Home is a great, upbeat tune. Aries Man is a songwriter's song. Macek is apt at developing a compelling narrative in under four minutes. Home Is A Sweet Song and Be My Answer are major mix tape material. Also be sure to check out Just Right, Papa, Be Mine and Live, Love and Learn. Just Right certainly is. Erick Macek has crafted a powerful and beautiful album that should be a harbinger of great things to come.

Rating: 4 Stars (Out of 5)
