Ben Reel – Land of Escape

Album (Brief) | B Reel Records | By Allan Wilkinson | Stars: 3/5

Ben Reel’s eighth album features a dozen new songs by the Irish singer songwriter, recorded at Ben’s home studio in South Armagh, the songs being treated to lush arrangements throughout, with Ben’s fine vocal at the helm. Soulful in places, Land of Escape provides the sort of escapism we currently crave, especially on such songs as “Some Mercy, Misty Morning Rain” and the tender “Paradise Found”.
