Patlansky has crafted a sonically excellent vehicle for his voice and playing, continuing to go from strength to strength.

'Perfection Kills', the latest album from Dan Patlansky, sees the South African Blues guitarist take the foundations laid with his 2015 breakout album 'Dear Silence Thieves' and build upon the success with which 2016's award-winning 'Introvertigo' was met.

Having already released a slew of albums in his homeland, with his debut album 'Standing At The Station' having been released all the way back in 2004, Patlansky attracted wider attention when Blues Rock Review voted '...Thieves' the Best Blues Rock Album Of 2015, beating efforts by Joe Bonamassa, Rival Sons, The Black Keys and more. This recognition led to a support slot in Johannesburg for Bruce Springsteen, before Patlansky was invited to open for Joe Satriani's 'Shockwave' tour.

He followed that album up with 'Introvertigo', which enjoyed the same accolade as its predecessor in Blues Rock Review, and he headed out on the road with King King and then performed an acoustic solo tour. Keeping the momentum going, 'Perfection Kills' stays within the confines of what went before, the likes of opener 'Johnny' with its Jimi Hendrix-eqsue riff and Funk guitar embellishments demonstrating the Patlansky sound well.

Not just a skilled guitarist, Patlansky has also grown as a vocalist and his gruff voice is perfectly suited to the material. He's no stranger to weaving a hook into his music either, with the repetitive 'Mayday' being a real earworm. The distorted anger of 'Too Far Gone' shows how hard he can Rock, while the clever lyrical observation of 'iEyes' is something we can all relate to.

Handling the production himself this time, Patlansky has crafted a sonically excellent vehicle for his voice and playing, continuing to go from strength to strength. It's not a million miles from his previous couple of records, but when it ain't broke, why fix it?
