He's back and asking for more and, much to Phil Lewis's delight, his new single 'Just One Kiss' has landed in my hands!
After re reading my previous review of Phil's album 'Movements In Space' all the exact points that were pointed out are re-appearing in this song but no where near as offensive as before. Yes, it's The Feeling but this track has got a charm of it's own. The added moodiness to this track works extremely well against Phil's darker vocal and with The Feeling steering away from song's like this, it seems original enough to the ear.
Moving on to 'Let's Play', the adding of keyboards and energy pumps some guts into the melody. As before in my previous review of Phil, the same problem occurs where his vocal just doesn't suit up beat, fast paced songs as it just remains anonymous.
Phil's got it right when it comes to performing relaxed songs where his vocal goes from being flat hearted into adding a depth of power that turns it into the leading the song. Phil please stick to songs like 'Just One Kiss' because if you continue to do so, your hit the spot every time.
