Drops the curtain to expose a more romantic side in this, his fourth album. Like a nature walk through a forest of emotions. Love and spirituality are tenderly explored with an assortment of light rock and pop songs.
Singer/songwriter Brad Belt’s fourth album, Painted Eyes, steps (or maybe plunges) into the murky waters of human relationships. Another twist in the rope, Brad brings additional pages of life experiences to the lyrical and sonic scenes. Painted Eyes visits the beaten and weathered topics of love and companionship – but with a tender touch that is as refreshing as it is raw. Sprinkle in some spirituality, the love of motorcycle freedom and standing on an isolated mountain looking back in time and you have a full listening experience.

"Painted Eyes" by Brad Belt is an enjoyable adult rock album that speaks of faith, life experiences and companionship. Brad has a very nice, soothing voice with a great "storyteller" quality to it. You'll also notice a touch of country in his delivery. This is a romantic album with simple, but complimentary arrangements. Everything comes together very nicely. The production quality is very good and the lyrics are right up front and very clear. You certainly hang on every word while listening. The songwriting provides memorable choruses. Highlights include "Painted Eyes" with a rebellious electric guitar riff and a nice boy meets girl story. "Some Days (Are Meant For Flyin&rsquo" features a quirky country/blues arrangement and has a ton of personality. "Only Me" has a nice piano progression and a nice vocal performance. If you enjoy adult rock with relevant, real-world lyrics and memorable songwriting, you’ll enjoy this excellent CD.-William and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
