Review: Nine Stones Close-One Eye On The Sunrise

Nine Stones Close was conceived in 2008 as a solo project by Adrian Jones. He independently released the first album, St Lo, to critical acclaim and this led to a follow up, released in 2010, Traces. This was an album made with a “proper” band comprising, Adrian Jones (guitars), Brendan Eyre (keyboards), Marc Atkinson (vocals) and Neil Quarrell (drums). This new release. One Eye On The Sunrise, from the band shows further changes to the members of the group. Former members Brendan and Marc rejoin Adrian, and they are joined by Peter Vink (bass) and Pieter Van Hoorn (drums).

Just before starting the review, it is also worth mentioning the stunning artwork for the album, carried out by Antonio Seijas.
One Eye On The Sunrise is a 10 track album with tracks varying in length from the short track 10, “Sunset” which lasts for 1:28 minutes, to the penultimate track, “Frozen Moment” which stops the clock at 13:34. In total, the album has a running time just short of 60 minutes.
