Album Review
Be Sharp
Reviewed 2018-09-26 

The cornerstone of this record is Marlon Williams’s remarkable voice. It is most certainly professionally trained, has a wide range, and includes both a falsetto & vibrato that must be compared to Roy Orbison’s. The songs tell the story of a relationship from beginning through breakup. All songs are written or co-written by Williams (lyrics inside cover). Accompaniment is guitars, keys, bass, drums.

FCC in #4

1 * Slow. Passionate love song, full of yearning. Elegant guitar & strings. (3:16)
2 ** Mid-tempo. Sweet, flirty, a bit retro. Strikingly like Roy Orbison. (2:42)
3 Very slow. Fallen hard & in deep. Extraordinary singing, but a so-so song. (3:31)
4 (FCC: fuk’n) Fast. Hints of infidelity; a threat. Goofy, off-putting Farfisa effect. (2:34)
5 Very slow. Eerie sounding. Separation, anxiety, and hints of a jealous love triangle (3:49)
6 Very slow. Sad novelty song w trite lyrics & falsetto. Synth’d trombone is awful. (3:13)
7 * Mid-tempo. Somewhat ominous & mysterious. Lyrics seem symbolic, but I can’t claim to understand them. Singing is very good and accompaniment is quite stylish. (2:36)
8 * Mid-slow. Stately, grand, moving. Very well sung: his lower range is as good as his high one. The band is superb here. (4:02)
9 Slow, dreary ballad. Falsetto. (4:31)
10 * Mid-slow. A lovely, male-female vocal duet: their voices mesh wonderfully. (4:59)
11 Very slow. Simply dreadful. (3:57)
