Not even close by Fair Haven
I've waited a bit with this review for two reasons, first I was busy ;) and second I wanted to give them a second chance because right after listening to Full Time Joker I was still in a different sphere ;)
Fair Haven play more Modern sometimes even Alternative Rock, which I normally like a lot, but even though the album is solidly produced I couldn't connect and no song took me in completely. However, there are two songs which do stand out and which received 5 stars. 'Anything' the last track on the album, a ballad with a subtle but carrying tune and 'Kings of Empty Castles' which also opens quietly and melodious but then slowly intensifies to a powerful finale.
All in all I could glimpse potential within Fair Haven, so it would be worth checking and seeing what they are up to.
