Matt Keating: QUIXOTIC

Matt Keating
Kealon Records [2008]

Fire Drill Review:
To be honest it has been about 11 years since I checked out anything by Matt Keating but I have found memories of his record Killjoy [1997]. So there is nothing like reconnecting to your audience and entice someone like me back by releasing a double album with a total of 23 tracks that covers a lot of ground. You get some rockers, some ballads and a whole lot of great songwriting. Keating probably is and has been one of the more underrated artists in this category and QUIXOTIC highlights that.

Key Track: "Louisiana"

Band With Similar Fire: Tommy Keane
