Matt Suggs returns with his sophomore solo LP, Amigo Row, and there is no slump in sight. Amigo Row is a supremely confident selection of songs and, with the able assistance of producer Brian Paulson, and his backing band Thee Higher Burning Fire (Than Kinsey, Raymond Morin, Zach Holland and John Anderson), Suggs has created an album that trumps his critically acclaimed debut, Golden Days Before They End. Rich in texture and emotion, Amigo Row conjures images of dusty backwater towns where no matter how serene and normal things may appear, something slightly off-kilter or wicked is most likely hiding just below the surface. Traces of Ray Davies or Nick Drake can be heard in the easy saunter of the vocals, and hints of Neil Young and Crazy Horse can be heard in the arrangements, but Matt Suggs is definitely his own man, cutting his own swath across the rock landscape as an emerging songwriter of considerable gifts and talent.
