"Ethno-techno-spiritual-progrock-pop" is how Don Himlin helpfully describes his new album 'Basket Full Of Holes'. It is undoubtedly the prog side which he leans most towards but nevertheless there's some lovely moments of clarity amidst the shape-shifting sounds and Christian sentiments. Quirky minimalist melodies can be discovered on 'Nothing In The Way Of Love' and 'These Here Days' whilst 'How Many' offers a more direct and likeable take on the work of Yes. Throughout, Himlin's vocals are pleasantly understated and even the six-part 'A Joyful Noise (Suite)' is almost worthy of its ambitious title. In lesser hands, this could have been a work of folly but Himlin's unusual arrangements are always imaginative and occasionally even uplifting.
