Album review

Entrance - The Kingdom Of Heaven Must Be Taken By Storm

Twenty-one-year-old singer/guitarist Guy Blakeslee is Entrance, and his debut would have been labelled acid-folk and lauded as an 'outsider art'cult item if it were released on a private press label 30 years ago. Blakeslee wails in loopy, unfettered fashion over idiosyncratic acoustic guitar and seems not unfamiliar with Marc Bolan. Entrance also delight in deconstructing Skip James and Bob Dylan, invoking echoes of early-Zep acoustic excursions along the way.
