CD Review – Graydon James and the Young Novelists
By Jade Sperry
This double CD offer titled Good Night was too good to pass up and so I embarked on a musical journey about life from a different perspective. The first song “Country Kids” immediately caught my attention with its infectious melodies and slighty fuzzed guitars. Well written and mixed this song has biting lyrics under the happy music. All 40 songs are for the most part good songs but it could have been a single CD of 12 or 13 really good songs. Another song “It Seems to Happen All the Time” is folksy and whimsical in its melodies. The vocal harmonies really work well with this song. And the acoustic guitar work is solid. All in all when you’ve got the time this outing is worth at least one listen through before making any decisions.
