Sight And Sound - Chris Von Sneidern
Sight And Sound
Sight And Sound is described as "genius pop, ...continuing the pure pop tradition of Big Star, Raspberries and Badfinger" and for once such as description is befitting of the music. From the joyous power pop of Gemini to the sad Never Again, My Love, the quality of Sight And Sound never waivers, even over 15 tracks (with one instrumental). This is all the more impressive considering that Sight And Sound was recorded in Chris Von Sneidern's home studio. Other highlights include the haunting melodies of Somedays and the 12 String Merseybeat of Annalisa. These are the type of songs that some artists spend their entire career trying to capture. Chris Von Sneidern, is quite simply a natural, up there with the likes of Charles Jenkins (Icecream Hands) and Michael Mazzerrella (The Rooks). And still I get the impression that his best work is still to come.
