ALBUM REVIEW: "Wounds & Whispers" 

Wales Road

"Wounds & Whispers"

Spun Records

walesroad.com

The hurt is palpable on this new CD from Wales Road. But the way Tommy Wales deals with it in myriad manifestations of anger, rage, and sadness, offers a way out for the listener and himself. Wales is a holy rock 'n' roller who leans heavily on secular influence when it comes to the guitar. The sound here is dark and heavy, veering frequently into straight-up metal territory. The unfortunate end to Wales' marriage weighs heavy in the man's lyrical content on this CD. This is easily some of his best, most concise guitar playing to date. In the end, it's what will save him. Chin up, daddy-o.
