ALBUM REVIEW NOVEMBER 2005 Mitch One Good Reason (whatchila records) You can hear the influences immediately. Thats the only real criticism of Dubliner Eamon Mitchells Debut. Its a minor criticism though, And for most part of One Good Reason is a confidant, Rounded and absorbing record full of catchy radio singles and comfortable in its skin as an old school rock album. So then, Tom Petty is all over one-man show; Bob Dylan and the Boss jump in and out of one good reason; The Verve and Oasis lurk in the backgrounds of Breathe; and Elvis Costello keeps rearing his head. All this is fine, but Mitchell is absorbed in his influences that there are times an American tinge to his vocals. That aside though, One Good Reason rewards repeated listening. Throughout, the record thematically Delves into loss, absence, age and the past. Home doubtlessly Written during Mitchells years spent in Scandinavia, Aptly distils what the record is about that sense of feeling lost and trying to suitably find oneself. Particularly, it hints at the rapidly changing face of Ireland to the returning immigrant. Though quite introspective, One Good Reason is an up beat record that, like all the best albums, hides its true colours just below the surface. Lets hope Mitchell gets more of sense of himself next time round. 7/10 Steve Cummins Hot Press Ireland 2005 Mitch review The Hub Dublin Reviewed in Hot Press Ireland Switching comfortably between electric to acoustic/mouth organ style songs Mitch play a strong set of impressive original material. With the bombastic high energy drumming On songs such as 25 years; Breathe they turn it up full before the tell us their going to do a cover of their favourite artist .who shall it be, we wonder; Elvis Costello, Billy brag, Bob Dylan? then the proceed to bash out Richard Ashcrofts song for the lovers Shows what we know then.
