A Review from Brian Mear, on the album “New World” 29/11/18.

I’ve been listening to Ian Thompson ‘s album ” New World” for several days now whilst travelling to work and back
Ian is incredibly talented and a unique and wonderful singer/ song writer
He’s from Liverpool and now resides in the Isle of Man
The thing that stands out with this album for me is the quality and melody of the songs ( jointly written by Ian’s brother Jimmy )
You can’t help making comparisons with the Beatles with that standard of writing
There is rock, pop, jazz and classical influence s here
I hear shades of Van Morrison, the Beatles like I’ve already mentioned, Chris rea, Level 42 and even Madness
The diversity of each track and the craftsmanship is breathtaking
We live in an age where art like this seems to have so little monetary value
When you consider how much, time, effort and emotion that’s been invested here
This track ” Your my Liverpool ” has really affected me this morning
To me it’s a song about loss, about missing times past and loved ones especially parents
It conjured up my Mum straight away and I felt she was sat beside me in the car this morning as tears poured down my face
A stunning incredible album by a fantastic musician.
Beautiful.                                           Purchase album here
