“The Grapes sway from spoken word poetry on ‘Brother Don’t Cry For Me’ to more upbeat folk-rock numbers like the heart-wrenching ‘Mama (Why You Hurt Me)’ and epic ballad ‘Cowboys And Indians’. There’s a 60s psychedelic feel that leaks onto almost every track but suddenly screams out in ‘Ride On Lonely’.
The guitar tones on the track are pure 60s folk rock, with that crunch and reverb so synonymous with the era. Rich takes the lead vocals and sings of bringing gold, whiskey and diamonds to her lonely cowboy with a dreamlike lullaby quality to her voice that’s mesmerising and hypnotic.”
Rated 7 out of 10
