Another Vampire Masterpiece!
With Blood & Smoke, Mike Bennett has followed up his amazing work in Underwood & Flinch. Unlike Underwood & Flinch, Blood & Smoke captures Lord Underwood's history, as gleaned from a series of recordings he made and his journals. While Underwood & Flinch almost felt like a dramatic reading by a cast of performers given Bennett's virtuosity with creating voices to match the characters, Blood & Smoke has a more limited range of characters. The sole misstep of this series is Bennett's portrayal of an African in Colonial times. As Bennett himself acknowledged in one podcast, he simply didn't growing up listening to the voices of Africans, so he just hasn't mastered it as he as those of the Spanish, Russian, Irish, and British characters.All told Blood & Smoke is another triumph for Mr. Bennett.
