|Eric Avery - All Remote And No Control|
His debut solo offering is called "Help Wanted". The first release is "All Remote & No Control", which is amazing. Watch the video at right and see for yourself. Shirley Manson (Garbage, Angelfish) guest vocals on the track "Maybe". This album will end up on my revised list of top favorites. I've listened to it almost every day since I got it earlier this week, and it's mesmerizingly good. Not just his orchestration and the depth of the lyrics, but the production on this album is incredibly well crafted to boot.
Eric Avery has only gotten better with age, that's for sure. This solo debut is one of the best albums of any I've heard in the past 5 years, easily. Definitely check him out.
