Smalltape - The Hungry Heart (2021)

The third album from this German project.

Smalltape is Philip Nespital on percussion, guitars, keyboards, electronics, piano and vocals.

He got help from a small army of guests who has provided strings, woodwinds, bass, drums, vibraphone and backing vocals.

I really liked the 2017 album The Ocean and was looking forward to sink my teeth into this album.

Smalltape/Philip Nespital gives us a full range of music on this album. From elegant pop to neo- prog and jazz. There is also some musicals here.

This is a 2 CDs album and the second CD is mostly taken up by a twenty-two minutes long opus.

The sound is very good and so is the vocals.

The music flows and ebbs. There is always a new theme around the corner and the music is very varied. Varied but never dull or less than good.

The music is really elegant and Philip Nespital is surely one of the bigger talents in today's scene.

Check out this very good album.
