David Martin - Something in Your Eyes Review

.
For singer songwriter David Martin it's all about the song and his song are borne of his experiences in life. His album Something in Your Eyes is an album of 10 original songs tells of profound live and deep devotion for someone special. Like Richard Marx, David Martin uses his music to profess his feelings for that someone special in his life. But the songs also show a devotion to something more his faith. Yet this is not an outright in your face testament, but a subtle profession that is there for those listeners who pay close attention.

On his album credits Martin thanks legends of the seventies and eighties Billy Joel, Sting, Bono, Sir Elton John, and Barry Manilow. While Martin's songwriting styles reflect some of those great artists, his music is very much a reflection of the bands of the eighties and what was called power pop. The hard rock feel of the music is tempered by Martin's voice.

Martin uses his voice and the lyrics to carry the songs, while the instruments drive the song. At times the lyrics seem to get a bit repetitive but then Martin's beautifully crafted music takes over.

Overall Something in Your Eyes is a nice album and David Martin has a pleasant voice making the album an enjoyable play. Fans of Enter the Haggis may find Martin's voice very similar to the band's fiddle playing singer Brian Buchanan.
