“LIZ CLARK : Path of Dreams. (http://www.planktonrecords.co.uk/) Writing with producer Paul Mcllwaine, the pair of them certainly know how to bring the best out of each song. Multi instrumentalist Mcllwaine is a gem of an artist, and his guitar playing, first class. ‘Pure’ is a simply beautiful song, with Liz’s exquisite vocals leading you through some brilliant instrumentation. On ‘Holy Rain’, the song almost breaks into mainstream pop, and there are some really nice rhythms included too. Quieter songs such as ‘Whispers of Love’ fit nicely in the track listing, while the more radio friendly ‘Only You’ rounds off this album of faith songs. If you’re expecting something in the mould of Moya Brennan or Joanne Hogg, then think again. Liz Clarke provides something a little out of the ordinary for you to meditate on. 8/10.”
