Paul Liddell - 'The Ends Of The Earth'
Reviewed 18 August 2013
A song about Paul’s home city of Sunderland that has suffered for many years with the decline of traditional industries and the harshness of economic recessions. The song’s lyrics reflect his fears for the city but also show the great affection he has for it and the strong ties that bind him there. This turns a potentially downbeat song into an uplifting one that gives hope for the future. Paul’s emotive vocals coupled with his fine sense of melody give the song a real intensity and beauty that makes for a memorable listening experience. All in all this is a top quality song that is a worthy addition to his back catalogue and will hopefully help to bring his work to the attention of a wider audience.
