Pat Buchanan



Buchanan is a phenomenal guitar player, be it electric or soaring bottleneck on a trusty old acoustic, describing his latest album as like "acoustic XTC meets Pet Sounds".   It is beguiling, Beatle-tinged stuff, even if his gentle voice is overshadowed by his playing. 
Colin Somerville, Scotland on Sunday

A classy collection of contemporary power pop and crafted tunefulness, reminiscent of early solo Paul McCartney and even XTC.

For all of his leaning toward country, this fantastic solo outing is more in line with the pop genius of his former band Idle Jets, although not leaning so heavily on the power-pop guitar action.   Great melodies with Beatle-esque flourishes, incorporating rootsy elements, run throughout.
