Greece - Full Moon 129 - 04/02/07
Memories from a Dream
Honest Touch consists of Sammy Elgazzar and Fofi Maridiaki. Their debut is a lush, cinematic work of mostly instrumental songs.
"A Lonely Ride" is a sweeping, sad song seemingly fit for the soundtrack of an epic movie. "Dancing Under the Moon" features a bit if wordless soprano singing set to a grand backdrop. "And A Time For War!" an ironically entitled passage is effectively plaintive.
"Luce Lonatana" is a song that features some of Mariadaki's finest piano passages. The album ends with a nice version of Abba's "Lay All Your Love On Me". Honest Touch have crafted an impeccable debut.
