J.P. Kallio Puts Out A Beautiful Record Full of Life on The Call

J.P. Kallio’s fourth record is one of the most compelling things I’ve heard this year. The opening track alone is enough to hook even the most jaded of music fans, as the guitar work ushers you into a whole new world of music. It’s a good guitar ballad of sorts, and it begins a record that has incredible lyrical elements and emotion that you don’t always find in a lot of releases. There’s a certain honest that comes through from the beginning and flows through to evoke a fine mix of songs that you’ll have a hard time putting down.

“Call Off The Angels” is one of the best songs on the record, but the movements forward produce even more for the listener. “On His Way To Hell”, “No Safe Bets”, “Watch The Rain”, and others filter through this record that produces a good sense for what J.P. Kallio has to offer. The acoustic, rock, and blues structure is felt throughout here, and there’s a lot of raw emotion that bleeds through the songs, making it a standard. It’s hard to find any missteps on this record, as it really feels so complete, and full, which is a testament to the artist’s adherence to honest music.

As far as acoustic, alternative, this is one of the best records I’ve come across. There’s so many layers to this, and it’s definitely a promising record. It transcends the simple song writing that you hear, with complex topics and ideas that hit home as you listen. You will go through several emotional rides through the tracks, and you’ll have to listen to it again, just to keep up.

J.P. Kallio presents a fin record with “The Call” and it truly is one of the best records of the year. It’s simple at times, it’s complex musically in others, and throughout there’s an honest relationship between song and lyrics that definitely permeates. It’s a beautiful type of record that deserves a lot of attention.
