Honesty
15 June 2019 | by karlmacnioclaisSee all my reviews

Anyone familiar with LWIII's work will verify the brutal honesty which define his lyrics, sharing his trials and tribulations with those who want to listen. This is a magnificent piece of theatre, intimate, honest, funny and embellished by Loudo's tongue in cheek style of narration. But also present is the rich prose of his father's writing, juxtaposed with his son's singing. Well worth a watch.
