V - The Revelation Is Now TelevisedBBE Records
After a handful of 12" releases for the MAW and its subsidiary labels over the past couple of years, V finally delivers his debut album. Produced by Jazzy Jeff at his A Touch Of Jazz Studios, 'The Revelation Is Now Televised' is largely a down-tempo soul affair. As you would expect the production and vocals are strong throughout but for me the set lacks a standout song. The groovy 'Confess' and 'Who Will I Be' are the better cuts but unfortunately the album omits the killer 'Confusion' which appeared on the recent T.R.I.N.T. 4 track EP.
