Hand Built By Robots

Album Review

Newton Faulkner's PR is clearly to be applauded as the kinds of people who think Joss Stone can sing soul, that Jack Johnson is sunny fun, and that James Morrison is a sensitive songwriter, all seem to have become aware of this talented guitarist. Unfortunately, it's all so bleurgh... Bland, pretend music that sounds like a computer synthesis of local radio drive time singer songwriters, sung by... is it Hootie? It sounds like so many Blowfish songs, it must be... In truth, Faulkner is a lovely guitarist - tone, technique, style - and his voice is technically very good. But both lack soul, and having chosen a soulful singer songriter direction, it should all come together better than this. Unfortunately, Asda's shelves will overflow with this mediocrity, and it will be all over the radio... Hand Built By Robots will be played to you with enthusiasm by your nicest mates, and we're all going to have to learn to tune it out if we're not to go mad.

Rating 6/10
