Album Review: Paul Turner – Another World
Release Date: September 14, 2010
Record Label: White Lotus
Paul Turner’s second album, Another World, was recorded in the U.S. with Larry Crane (Elliot Smith, The Shins) at Jackpot Studio in Portland, Oregon and Russel Pilling in Sydney Australia. The production of this album is crisp, clean and the instrumentation is well balanced. The production team has a very good sense of how the music should sound. Turner himself is a gifted vocalist and guitarist. His finger-picking, on songs like “Keep Fighting” is a real pleasure to hear.
This isn’t simply just another singer-songwriter album. Turner has an interesting style and manages to make big impressions with subtle changes. On the track “Heaven and Earth,” Turner conveys a very modern pop-rock feel that easily could make its way onto many radio stations. Then on songs like “Impossible” the feeling is more traditional, while never dated.
It’s rare to find an album where each track is an enjoyable piece to hear. Paul Turner has create just that.
