Robert Lane – Only a Flight Away

Album (Brief) | Self Release | By Allan Wilkinson | Stars: 3/5

With commendations from the master of English song writing Ray Davies, Robert Lane exercises his craft once again in this third release, an album of self-penned songs ranging in style from the folk/pop leanings of “The Instigator”, to the rock solid band arrangement of “Man of the Moment”. Impressive in its scope, Only a Flight Away is almost a compendium of styles, all of which demonstrate Robert’s versatility as a songwriter and tunesmith. The bluesy “Baby Knows” could not be more different from “Hoping for Anything (But You)”, yet they’re both distinctly Robert Lane through and through.
