Morning's Coming Album Review by Ian Cripps of Fatea

Morning's Coming Album Review by Ian Cripps of Fatea

"Their music seeps into your soul, it calms, it lifts and encourages. In this day and age, for me, that's priceless."

Thank you Ian for this fantastic review ...

Ian Cripps of FATEA

February 2021

Excerpts ...

Somethings only get better. "Morning's Coming" the new album from those masters of melody Vision Thing is indeed a case in point. Recorded over eighteen months during those periods when we occasionally managed to escape lockdowns their new album is their most accomplished to date.

Warm finger picked guitar opens the title track before heart wrenching vocals from Cherlene Walmsley tell the tale of lovers separated by distance and unable to contact each other. Sadness, yearning, frustration and love all come across in the space of three and a half minutes of pure magic in which David Windsor's restrained violin complements the emotions of the song perfectly. Truthfully, the title track is incredible.

Pete Cunliffe (acoustic guitar and vocals) takes the lead on a tale of transportation of a labourer whose stole to put food on the family table ("Australia"). It is one of the ten tracks all written by the band which is completed by Paul Cunliffe on bass guitar, acoustic guitar and amicus.

Romantics will love "Another Life" as Vision Thing explore the concept of souls that in each lifetime seek their true love and find them throughout the ages.

Micah Hampson guests on trumpet adding a mournful Gallic feel to "Le Verre a Pied" , a picture painted of a traditional café in the Latin quarter of Paris which hasn't changed over the decades. The portrait is so vivid you feel you are there soaking in the atmosphere.

Vision Thing have produced in "Mornings Coming" their strongest set yet of texture based songs that compel the listener to engage. Their music seeps into your soul, it calms, it lifts and encourages. In this day and age, for me, that's priceless.

Ian Cripps
