Nathaniel Roberts Portraits Of A Starving Artist Album Review
January 18, 2014

Artist: Nathaniel Roberts
Album: Portraits Of A Starving Artist
Label: Gallarage Records

Rating: ****1/2


Nathaniel Roberts takes a trip through the heart of man in this 19 track voyage titled "Portraits Of A Starving Artist". This trip begins in the stage of a misguided adult that still has not learned how to walk away from the childish games that are accustomed to youth on the introduction track titled "The Game". Nathaniel created an album that is broken in various pieces but ultimately strives to present one organized piece of art. What does it turn out to be? It's the key to mastering the affairs of the heart within an imperfect man.

This subject is visited often throughout the album as he goes deep into unnatural relationships "Memoirs Of an Angel", "Scorned", and "Dead On Arrival". He tackles the subject of deceit and intentional yet regretful errors "Lie 4 A Reason, "I lost Myself", and "Fed Up". He shares his epiphanies "Brand New Vision", "Better Half", and "Statistics". Also he confides his deepest secrets in his audience with tracks such as "Dying Inside", "Im Not Sure", "The Fallacy", and "Quotes from the Grave". The Portraits are painted vividly.

The question is what is Nathaniel Starving for? This can be found in the artwork of the album. As simple as it is we find the sketch of a complete heart. The album can be viewed as an abstract body of work but it seems that Nathaniel was going for metaphoric colors represented by each song. With these colorful songs he strives to create a masterpiece that leaves the conclusion up to the listener. Did Nathaniel's colorful past truly lead him to finally attain a mature and complete heart? That is left up to the lister to answer.

Overall the albums sound and direction is handled completely by Nathaniel Roberts excluding "4" tracks. It's a very soulful, simple, fun, and intense gallery of work. It was a pleasure to listen to and we truly recommend that you take some time out to visit Nathaniel Roberts musical exhibit titled "Portraits Of A Starving Artist".
