It's as if he’s in on the joke, and he’s letting us in track by track.
Having teased an album for a bloody long time now, we’re finally getting a glimpse of what’s, potentially to come from Matt Maltese, and it’s sounding impeccable.
Only someone with the air and confidence of Maltese could position God as a comedian for what he does to us as humans and our taste for love. For a twenty-something year old, Matt certainly sees the world in a different way.
Riddled with affirmations of longing, ‘Greatest Comedian’ relies upon the relaxed swagger of the bass and guitar to keep it strutting, while Matt’s vocals pack a yearning quality that’s self-realised. It's as if he’s in on the joke, and he’s letting us in track by track. Steven Loftin
