MRU MAGAZINE (Music Review Unsigned)
"As far as guitars go, nothing beats the acoustic guitar when it’s played expertly. Eoin Martin, from Offaly, is such an expert. He plays so beautifully and accomplished that he cannot fail to impress.
His riffs would rival Metallica and his use of harmonics is exquisite but restrained – it would be easy to overdo it. Martin is clearly a master of the instrument.
He also impresses with that other instrument, the voice. Put simply, he sings his heart out. He is also not afraid to sing with an American accent which is a throwback to Irish rock singers in the 70s and 80s, for example Bono and Phil Lynott. The lyrics are intelligent and well crafted and they round off what is a gorgeous collection of songs. This is the perfect Indie record. A flawless gem. There are no week songs or repetitions here.
It would be interesting to see where Eoin Martin goes from here, having mastered the one man with an acoustic guitar gig. Will he go electric? Will he form a band? Whatever he chooses to do you get the feeling that he cannot but succeed.
An exciting prospect.
