Melancholy Good
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Church always seemed to sound a bit "Spooky", and in the 1980's that was not a bad thing in the Music Industry.
Marty Willson-Piper was the Guitarist that helped to texture the overall sound of that band greatly. But "Rhyme" proves he had much more to say and it's a overlooked gem of a CD.
This 1989 release features 12 finely crafted tunes that owe much to the man's musical roots. Marty can be much more upbeat than The Church and he does know his way around a Pop Song quite well. A liitle bit jangly (The Byrds), as Melancholy as Ray Davies or Brian Wilson. The Production of Rhyme sounds larger than the People involved, listening to a tune such as "Say" is quite moving.
This is a timeless music and I feel lucky to have stumbled on to it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Songs That Don't Make It On To Church Albums

"As the guitarist for the Church, Marty Willson-Piper has been in and around the fringe of music since the early eighties. What is different about his solo records is how quiet they are. This is by far his strongest solo release. His last two efforts seemed a little too much like Church outtakes. The songs on this record are intimate and you can luxuriate in his guitar work. He sucessively creates an atmosphere in songs such as Whisper and you can picture him sequestered somewhere in a studio in Stockholm. I'm not even sure if this is still in print but it is definitely worth seeking our in a used record store if you like the Church, or more specifically if you like Marty Willson-Piper songs on the Church's albums."
