Several songs on this album bear the hallmarks of the poignancy of a real situation and are clearly autobiographical.

Billed as the debut album of the brand new outfit The Tyla J. Pallas Band, this is a double album featuring electric versions on the first disc and acoustic versions of the same ten new and original songs written by Tyla Pallas – front-man for the Dog's D'amour – on the second. Whilst it has to be said this material has more in common with Pallas' solo work than his work with the DD, it has to be suggested that it appears trouble and strife brings out the best creatively in this relevant Bard, "Twas ever thus" perhaps with the human race. There's the added bonus of artwork and prints of hand-written lyrics by the main man, he being famous for his illustrations since the days of the Dogs.

Several songs on this album bear the hallmarks of the poignancy of a real situation and are clearly autobiographical, particularly 'You Made Your Bed', 'It's Too Late Now' and 'Spell Is Cast'. Dripping with authentic regret, when taken with songs like 'Frozen In Time' and 'When Love Turns To Hate', it's pretty clear the main theme is lost relationships and human tragedies, the stuff of fascination since well before Shakespeare.

Even with songs ostensibly about historical figures (for which Pallas is known) like Guy Fawkes when he debates limbo and demonification, it feels like he casts himself in the starring role. The feeling and authenticity of the work comes out in Pallas' voice and this is arguably his best solo style work for a while.

While there are differences, the contrast between the versions of the same songs on the two disc may not be as stark as perhaps expected, maybe Pallas put out both precisely because he couldn't choose between them. Whatever, good songs extolling the human condition have application to all of us and the more the merrier (or sadder perhaps). On this album we can tell he really means it. So it is with all good art.
