Review of “Breakthrough” -John Scargall

My first encounter with John’s music was when I heard the catchy “A Little Bit Of Lovin'(If You Dont Mind)” and subsequently played it on my UK show in April. Now John has included this alongside 9 other tracks (some have been made available prior to launch) on his new debut album “Breakthrough”

Best described as ‘Country Rock’, the album achieves what many struggle with-engaging songs and positive messages. A case in point is “Live Out Loud”, where he declares ‘If I’ve Got One Life To Live/Gonna Live It My Way’ over a soaring electric guitar. The title track ballad continues the same theme while asking ‘Why Do You Dreamers Live Underground?’ While reflecting ‘Victims Holding Other Victims Down’, John clearly has a feel for challenging the listener with lyrics!

The album also achieves the difficult task of growing on you with each play, rewarding each time! I found my foot tapping with each listen! This album will stand the test of time and is a great introduction to a great new talent!
