ALAN DOYLE-SO LET’S GO-“DOYLE BLENDS TRADITIONAL WARMTH INTO A MODERN EXCITING RELEASE”-CD REVIEW JOHN EMMS

Alan Doyledoyle cover 1

Earthy, at times moving, and brimming with just plain great songwriting Alan Doyle’s second solo album So Let’s Go may be the most cohesive work of his career.

Sure, that’s saying a lot considering his work as co-founder and lead vocalist with Great Big Sea but Let’s Go has an international feel that could translate way beyond Canada.

The title track written and produced by Doyle and Thomas Salter has a killer feel that jumps out of your speakers.

Doyle’s joyous vocal turns the track into an anthem.

That goes ditto for the infectious singalong rave up  1, 2, 3 4 written with Ed Roberstson.

If there was ever an encore song that could muscle out a Great Big Sea hit at a concert this song would be it.

Doyle gets deeper on the poignant Shine On written and produced with the talented Jerrod Bettis who also co-writes My Kingdom with Todd Clark and Doyle.

In fact, both songs show off the perfect blend of a modern mix with a traditional vibe.

Other key tracks include the working class Celtic soul of Take Us Home, Sins Of Saturday Night, and I Can’t Dance Without You.

Inspiring and consistent So Let’s Go is a winner.

Note the Album release date is Jan 20th/2015

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, Sun Media contributor, and songwriter/vocalist with Canadian roots/blues rockers THE SHAFTMEN
