Whilst Polaradio isn’t a name you’re probably familiar with, the man behind it, Dusty Hughes should certainly be no stranger, as this is the third album Indie Launchpad has reviewed, from this creative artist and certainly a slight direction change from the last Dusty Hughes solo album, So Familiar.

Whilst this has all the familiar hallmarks, it’s on the whole a much softer rock album. One thing I love about Dusty is his very distinctive voice, which is such a great match for the music he plays, whether it’s an out and out rock song, or something more gentle.

There are 13 tracks on the album and they all knit together very well. Whilst I love Dusty’s harder edge, I do love the light relief that comes with tracks like “Float” and “Don’t Look Back” and in fact the second half of the album seems to take the more mellow approach, which is fine with me. My favorite track on the album would have to be “Better Day”, but both the previously mentioned two track and “Hymn” are also right up there.

Conclusion : Whilst I enjoyed Dusty’s previous album, this certainly feels like a much more polished offering. Really great stuff.
