Kalei­do­scope Dream RCA

★★★★ Miguel Pimentel’s sec­ond al­bum be­gins with Adorn, and you’re hooked from the start like a big ol’ fish on a line. Tip­ping the hat to Marvin Gaye’s Sex­ual Heal­ing, Adorn swings and siz­zles. But there’s more where that comes from, and those who caught Pimentel’s Art Dealer Chic EPs from ear­lier this year will have clicked that the singer has moved to mine deeper seams. Kalei­do­scope Dream is rich, sub­stan­tial, ad­ven­tur­ous and colourful, the work of an artist pre­pared to take chances by not do­ing what’s expected of him. The blasts of pur­ple psychedelia (a strong Pur­ple Rain buzz to Do You and the ti­tle track), disco shim­mies ( What’s the Fun in For­ever) and lover­man brag­ging ( Pussy Is Mine) re­in­force the mes­sage that this is an artist re­defin­ing what he’s all about. of­fi­cialmiguel.com
