RockmusicRaider Review - Passenger - Whispers - Album CoverAfter all that harder Metal  stuff I reviewed lately, it is time to get to something a little softer and more reflective. What better choice than ‘Passenger‘ with their newest 2014 release and 6th studio album ‘Whispers‘ or more Mike Rosenberg with his latest and best, made with some studio musicians.

Similar style (or kind of, at least) than its predecessor ‘All the Little Lights’, the music is quite varied and somewhat different from each other, but of course and as usual, the melodies are of lesser importance, but more focus are on the texts – he is a story teller.Got hooked?

RockmusicRaider Review - Passenger - All the Little Lights - Album CoverIt was one of these ‘interesting, tell me more’ experiences that got me looking into the British gig  ‘Passenger‘, which basically consists of Mike Rosenberg as lead and studio musicians. And indeed so – he basically runs this outfit more or less on his own after the official break up of the band back in 2009. 

Little chipmunk voice seemingly coming from the Master of Nerds letting off steam over everyday issues, sometimes of the trivial kind, sometimes with more substance, but not really getting up to speed with his music. Right?? Not so fast! 

The fourth 2012 studio album ‘All The Little Lights‘ is laid back, quiet Folk Rock or simply Folk, interspersed with Pop, not quite assaulting my ears in the way I am used to (compared to the Metal fare that is often blasting out of these loudspeakers).
