Review of the Hank Mobley CD Hi Voltage

The exceptionally talented Wind creative person Hank Mobley have released him cadmium entitled Hello Voltage. I am very confident and happy to denote that I believe Hank Mobley fans, and Wind fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Hello Voltage Hank Mobley's artistic excellence is on full show as Mobley have once again delivered a superb aggregation of paths that could very well be him best work to date.

The cadmium boots off with an outstanding track, High Voltage, that I surmise will be heard on radiocommunication stations everywhere, and deservedly so. It really is a very nice track.

Hi Voltage is a nicely varied, premix of 6 paths that are very well written songs by this clearly talented artist. With many of the songs displaying a batch of the sort emotion that brands for a really great listen. Clearly drawing from what I can only conceive of are him have personal experiences. At different points touching on the most existent emotions like love, heartbreak, pain, failed human relationships and unachievable romance. They're all here.

Overall Hello Voltage is first-class from beginning to end. One of those CDs that after a few listens the songs are just etched into your memory. A must have got for the Wind fan. Really dramatic from beginning to end.

While this full record album is really very good some of my favourites are path 2 - Two And One, path 3 - No More Goodbyes, and path 6 - Flirty Gerty

My Bonus Pick, and the 1 that got Sensitive [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is path 1 - High Voltage. Great track!
