Got a CD of pedestrian blues rock business here from Tom Williams & the Boat. It appears to have angered our post-it sprinkling stockroom goblin who simply says "Bluesy R6 rock, Gomez meets oh fuck". Gomez is a fair comparison, as are Razorlight in the crunchier moments (particularly Williams' vocal inflections). Keane would be another one.

Got a CD of pedestrian blues rock business here from Tom Williams & the Boat. It appears to have angered our post-it sprinkling stockroom goblin who simply says "Bluesy R6 rock, Gomez meets oh fuck". Gomez is a fair comparison, as are Razorlight in the crunchier moments (particularly Williams' vocal inflections). Keane would be another one. This is strident radio pop with big "ooh-ooh" backing vocals and big sweeping arrangements full of guitar, piano and violin.   The big, tuneful, emotional sound is making me think of Deacon Blue actually, and there's a couple of moments where he has a nicely flowing almost chatty delivery in the verses that nearly wins me over on a couple of occasions before he ruins it by bursting into an overwrought chorus. Fairly consistently I'm finding myself enjoying his quiet, mumbly moments and then being put off by the radio-rock cliches as soon as he picks up the pace.   The irony is that the things I can't stand about this are probably the same things that his fans will love; it's uncomplicated, catchy blues rock with a big polished sound.
