Darker, deeper, more mysterious than Richard Davis' previous album, this creation is really something unique. Here with "Details", it nearly sounds like litterature, a storyteller using beats, violins and his broody voice.

In "Safety", the mood was quite airy (even the titles of the tracks were full of life and light like "In The Air", "Breathe", "Colours", etc). But here, the atmosphere is made of dust, nonchalance, indifference. Melodies are plaintive and dramatic, and the lyrics throughout the tracks are an anti-hedonistic thing. "Nothing you could say, will bring me closer", "I can say what I want when there's no one around, I feel no pain, no anxiety, I'm empty', "Don't be excited all the time, I don't care, I don't care". Interesting, really interesting.

I don't like comparing artists in general, but if you like Lawrence's aesthetics, you may like this album. Indeed, in some tracks like "Empty", "Details" or "Bring Me Closer" for example, there's a foggy, haunting, romantic similar mood, but with a different tone. While Lawrence's music is snowy, greyish, Richard Davis sounds more like a warm red light in a dark room at night.

All in all, "Details" is a perfect synthesis of groove, intelligence and romance, where there's no bad track, and where tags and borders don't exist anymore. It is not house, not techno, not pop. It's just the expression of a talented soul. Yes, it's Art.

Richard Davis is the king of what I call adult oriented deep house. His first album Safety was filled with incredibly good tracks/songs and has to be regarded as a classic in this genre by now. So expectations for his follow up were high and Davis though not delivering another classic doesn't let us down.

Details is a collection of fine midtempo house songs that are equally far away from any wave-your-hands-in-the-air club hedonism as from radio friendly pop stupidity. With an air of melancholy here and there they are best suited for home listening. Details works well as an album, but apart from the two year old Bring Me Closer no track immediately springs out and grabs your attention like at least half of the songs on Safety did. With one or two more killer tracks this would be a contender for album of the year, so it is a mature piece of work. Well done Mr. Davis.
