Fake Books finds the Moving Pictures four years after their debut album with three less members and eight new songs. The long-anticipated LP from a group not known for a continuity of sound might surprise new listeners with its congruity and coherence in their most Traditional rock n roll output yet. Traditional in the sense of an exacting guitar tone as the ultimate guide. Traditional in that this iteration of M Pix consists only of one person, in this case a poet and his guitar. Through this lens we watch a reel of familiar concepts- flowers, books, loneliness- repeat themselves reverberated through the artist’s singular voice.
