On first listen one maybe a little bemused by some of the tracks, although on subsequent listening the album takes on a deeper perspective.
“From the Ground Up” brings Darryl Beaton’s ideas to life, delving into all sorts of magical, mystical moments that meld together to present a ménage of his musical talents.
The Darryl Beaton Band has a sound like no other, boasting a personnel list that reads like a who’s who of Sydney’s finest and showing Darryl’s extreme individualism to its best advantage.  His lyrics provoke food for thought, particularly on “My God is Better Than Yours”, and his voice is has a distinctly unique quality.
Be prepared for soul, funk, disco, reggae and more, with hook-laden, catchy melodies abounding throughout.
Do not dismiss this album, rather, take the time to experience the message that is “From The Ground Up”.DarrylBeaton-sings
