Longshot- World Don’t Cry

July 1st, 2004

From the forthcoming album Sacrifice, World Don't Cry by Longshot (produced by Molemen) is a really chilled out track. The production makes for smooth easy listening and the vocals are calm, yet expressive and intriguing. On the enjoyable four and a half minutes, the 23 year old Chicago native addresses in verse, the world, which in the beautiful chorus consisting of sweet female background vocals he urges not to shed a tear. The finished article is moving, perhaps for the expressive tones in the vocalists voice or the simple yet affective and enjoyable to listen to production which he accompanies spot on. The flipside is an instrumental to the promising track which has left me curious to go on and find more material by this young talented guy.
