Ron Pope – Calling Off the Dogs
This career-enhancing piece of brilliance from Pope is full of delightful feelings of musical euphoria in songs such as “Lick My Wounds” and “Empty Page” before switching to delicate masterings like “Explain” or “Silver Spoon”, each of which could respectively silence an arena. It’s music wizardry and Pope’s vocals stand on par with the greats that have been years before.
It’s easy-listening, soft and could easily become the soundtrack of your year. With build-ups and breakdowns, it’s evident that Pope has found his niche. And damn is he good at it. Mark Dunn, GiggingNI.com
