The Closer You Get The Better I Look
Twanghead Records

Alan Galloway and Mo Blishen make up Galloway on this minialbum. He has a deep, appealing voice that is well complimented by her sweeter tones.

"Waiting on a Wave" is a suggestive opener which ahs them singing to a nice tune. "I'll Rescue You" sees the pair getting quite poppy and also having some amusing Bonnie and Clyde references thrown in. The romanticism implicit is cute. "Wonderfool" is quite moving, Galloway singing of love to a light tune while Blishen supports him well. This is a most appealing record.
