||I first became aware of UK artist Maria Daines a few
months back. I knew a new CD was on the way and I was not
disappointed with the arrival of "Treebone".
Normally, I am not to big a fan of records were the artist
alternates between styles too much as I feel it breaks the
continuity and detracts from the listening experience. Not so with
this album. This is mainly due to Maria Daines' outstanding voice
control. The only other female artist I know that has this ability
to do this so well is Bonnie Raitt. However Maria Daines does not
sound like Raitt. This album is a perfect blend of rocking country
and blues rock, electric and acoustic songs.
|This album is consistently strong throughout. I do
however have some personal favorites. The beautiful ballad "Bring
your love along" is for sure one. The hard hitting "Tear down the
walls" is another. A real smoking rocker. My absolute favorite
would be "Too bad Henry". Another brilliant bluesrocker. But as
already stated this is one strong album from start to finish. This
album is not all Maria Daines though. Paul Killington does an
amazing job playing all the instruments on the album.
This album comes highly recommended by this reviewer.
