Combining the modern folk-tinged lyrics with electric rhythms, loops and occasionally strings, is Pete Beat’s trademark and this continues with his second album.

He uses parochial phrases in his lyrics which make it clear that he is from the North East; there is also that Geordie sensibility and humour which percolates throughout Nothing Is Perfect. Each track is a musical journey, a story in its own right. Rather than follow any pop song formula, the listener is presented with the world according to Pete Beat. Even when he gets political in Capitalism Must End he is charming rather than shouty, suggesting that there is an alternative to life as we know it.  

Nothing Is Perfect is a delightfully charismatic collection of musical episodes.
