Aural Pleasure Review

Nick Shan: 'Music Therapy Vol. 1'

Photo: , License: N/A


Even at its weakest (the first four tracks, filled with chorus-less songs or tracks that are nothing but aimless choruses), Nick Shan’s seven-track solo debut EP is a strong statement that’s all bark and bite. This funky, catchy little gem of pop is one of the best sounding local albums I’ve heard (credit goes to producer Ace 1) and confirms Eggshan’s Nick Pacheo (a solid singer, he also plays all live instruments) as a vital, groovy SA talent. Key tracks: “Chicken Laid Grenades,” which manages to kick ass even though it begs for a strong chorus, and “Smell a Rose” and “Take me There,” both deserving of videos as strong as the songs themselves.
