Peter Galperin

This Burning Sun

Review by Gary Hill

Combining elements of 80s pop music with Americana and more, this is an entertaining set. Some of the lyrics get quite topical, but it never loses its sense of fun musically. This stuff is catchy and accessible. It's also interesting.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Normal to You
Organ leads things out here. The acoustic guitar rises up, and we're into the cut and the album. This is a mellower kind of Americana based tune. It's pretty and accessible. There is an 80s Euro-pop vibe to this, too. There is a cool keyboard section at the end.
King of You and Me

There is a trippy kind of weird vibe to this. It's part psychedelia, part jazz and part folk music. This is fun.

I Been Told
This is a catchy kind of soulful jazzy number. It's fun stuff. It has a lot of that 80s vibe to it.
On Higher Ground

This is bouncy and fun. It's a bit like a folky rocker.

Don't Look Back

A bit harder edged, this is another classy mainstream rocker.

Hey What Can You Do
Bouncy and a bit more on the pop side, this is fun. The lyrics are quite political.
Lost Our Way
Another topical track, this is a cool Americana styled rocker. It has some great slide guitar.
One More Smile
Another classy rocker, this combines a lot of the musical elements from throughout this release. It's solid stuff.
