CD Reviews

Topley sets you free
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a fan of The Blessing since 1991, when the first album, Prince of the Deep Water was released. Since then, I have tried to buy everything of the Blessing I can get hold of, and it is strange that I was only able to get the second album, Locusts and Wild Honey, last week. This was after I had had William Topley's first solo effort, Black River, for a year. Obviously, something's gone wrong with the marketing of these absolutely first-rate products, and I am only thankful that I was fortunate enough to notice the wonder of this music before it passed me by. I am absolutely enthralled by the passion, hunger, thirst, soul, drama, melody and power of William Topley's music. Just his voice alone is something that is so enrapturing, that together with music and lyrics like that, there is no equal. Quite why The Blessing never became one of the biggest bands in the world I don't know, but I am very grateful for that, because William Topley's music seems to be evolving naturally, as it should be, in fact getting better in its change. If this music doesn't conjure up images of tropics, pirates, slaves, hardships, love and loss, then nothing will."

"This CD captures your attention through William Topleys distinct and wonderful voice but as you get quiet and truly listen to the lyrics you become fascinated with the talent not only for his musical abilities but for his awecome lyrical content.I am collecting all of Topley's work...."
Very Good Album!

"This album, "Locusts and Wild Honey" is an mature follow up to one of the most powerful albums I have ever owned. Filled with some very listenable tracks as well as a few that will simply take time to "grow" on you. Vivid lyrics bring to mind times when the islands were not accessable by airlines, but by Barquentine ships. While not as generous an offering as, "Prince of Deep Water" this album is filled with a distinct Jamacian flavor and strong songwriting. A definate buy when available."
