I don't like to do this very often, but perhaps a song-by-song review of this album would help people decide whether it holds anything of interest for them:
The Holy Hour: 8/10 Not a bad introduction, rather minimalist, strong focus on the bass guitar running through a flanger. I like the lyrics.
Primary: 7.5/10 One of the singles, not my favourite but by no means a bad song. It is a little more 'upbeat' than some of the other tracks on this album.
Other Voices: 8.5/10 The other of the singles, and the better one. Slower, more structured, more of a build up of intensity.
All Cats Are Grey: 9/10 This track I enjoy, particularly late at night with the lights out and candles going. It's just so gentle, you can close your eyes and be taken away by the music.
The Funeral Party: 9/10 Much like the previous track. Gorgeous lyrics, minimalist yet so lush.
Doubt: 7/10 ....and just as Robert begins to lull you to sleep, he smacks you in the side of the face with this jagged, crude and jolty little nightmare. By no means a bad song, just seemingly out of place straight after two beautiful, keyboard-driven slow songs.
The Drowning Man: 8/10 Depressing. Those who indulge in their own problems on a regular basis should be advised to skip this track.
Faith 8.5/10: Again, depressing. But then again, so is this album.Read more ›
