Rome, The Dublin Session, 2019

rome - the dublin sessionBack in the player is Jerome Reuter, a.k.a. Rome. With an album he recorded in ehhh Dublin with friends and local talents. If you have read my previous review of Rome, you will know that last time he impressed me with that album.

As it is always tempting to compare, I reckon I should view this for what it is; an album made with friends, focussing on lots of traditional instruments like banjo, bouzouki and uilleann pipes. And still there is that mighty voice and the acoustic guitar. And songs that sit very comfortable in a folk setting. So they are never overly complex, but thrive on melody and energy.
But the best thing for me, having never really been a fan of folk music, is that Rome manages to trancends that genre and again deliver something I enjoy listening to.  Bravo!

Besides the album, I also received the Hinter Den Mauern Der Stadt (Behind the walls of the City) single. Not sure where the 2 tracks are from, but by themselves they are also worth a listen, even when I found the lead track to be a bit repetitive.
