Songs of Solomon
Ari Shine's new album is a harp, melodic effort. "Ninety Nine" deals with being one of the regular people, and seeing the future go straight to hell while the privileged
ones gather what they can.
"Almost alright" is a harmonica-laden song with an evocative lyric and a nicely delivered vocal. "Goddamm Glorious" is an up-tempo song with a powerpoppy mood to it.
Shine's gift for writing these types of songs is obvious. "Welcome to the Biz" is another strong song, Shine penning a sharp observation of modern life and setting it
to a catchy tune. His new album really reflects a post financial crisis society and he's got a clear view of how things work. It makes this album really stand out.
