“it takes a certain kind of talent to write a love song without resorting to embarrassingly schmaltzy clichés. Marvin Gaye was a master at the art. Luther Vandross and Alexander O’Neal were perhaps the greatest exponents of the “soul ballad” during the nineteen-eighties and, right now, The Phoenix Rose‘s characteristic frontman Jarvis Smith is proving himself more than capable of not only adopting the classic elements of what is arguably the most difficult genre to convincingly pull off, but also to reprise them in a manner which sits comfortably with today’s contemporary audiences.”
