Album Review: "Haunted Streets" by Davie Furey (8/10)

Producer: Martin Quinn

Davie Furey’s latest offering has so much to keep the ear dazzled that you are compelled to keep listening. With its masterful and pristine production, the album is chock-full of diverse and sensual elements, from gripping percussion to wistful references to his Irish roots. Thoughtful, well-crafted lyrics sung with care and conviction permeate, with messages that are reflective but never brooding. There are a couple of bonus tracks towards the end of the album, and they either serve as the forerunner to the finished versions or are a different take on them, which could have been left off as the fuller band versions are more than enough.
