5.0 out of 5 stars A superb debut album Jan. 30 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sea Sew is Hannigan's debut solo album after her split from Damien Rice. Lucky for us that they parted, or else this album might never have happened. Hanningan's vocal are superb, on disc or live (check out the videos of her on youtube for proof of this). She has a very unusual sound, breathless but warm and astoundingly feminine. The face that she has an old-fashioned grace and beauty is just a plus, in my opinion ;-) In an industry that showcases gaudy bimbos for the most part she is definitely a breath of fresh air.

There are definitely a number of stand-out tracks on the record, including (in my opinion) "Ocean and a Rock", "I don't know" (the track that seems to have really broken her out), "Keep it all", "Pistachio" and "Lille" (another hit for her). Your favorites might vary from mine, but I bet they'd include some of these same songs.

Should you get this album? If you like "real" music, great lyrics, and exceptional vocals, then yes. If you prefer mainstream pap, then it may not be for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for 'I Don't Know' alone... Sept. 28 2009
Format:Audio CD
Seriously, gents, it's not often you get to hear a female sing so honestly about relationships! This song, 'I Don't Know', is the fifth track, and is terrific. The rest of the songs are lilting little ditties, and this album, while not perfect, is a true artistic expression, and I think that's all you can ask for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lisa Hannigan Sea Sew Dec 18 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was slightly disappointed the first time I listened to this. I was expecting her to sound the same as she did when singing with Damien Rice. However, after listening a few times, this CD really grew on me and it is one of my favourites now. She clearly has defined her own style, separate and disticnt from Damien Rice, and proven she is a star in her own rights. I'm glad I did not given up on this CD after the first listen, because I have come to love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lisa Hannigan; good intentions but falls short Aug. 24 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this CD. It is not that Lisa doesn't have a great voice because she does or even that the lyrics weren't good; they were good; not great. I didn't find the musicianship anything remarkable.

What I realized after listening to this CD is why I didn't enjoy it.....Lisa has worked previously partnering on some of Damien Rice CD's & I realized in listening to her own CD that what was missing to me was....heart, angst, expressions of the most intimate of feelings. Perhaps that is Damien's gift but she blended so beautifully with his work that I felt that her representations in his work would carry over into her own.

This CD felt passionless to me; perhaps it will be enjoyed by those that don't connect with passion, intimacy etc., or connect with music that isn't relating a particular story, struggle etc.

I would say it is equivalent to putting background music on when your having company that will neither annoy but not challenge anyone either.

Sorry to have to say it but this CD I would say is one of my biggest CD disappointments for 2009.....even for the last few years. Back to the drawing board maybe; sorry Lisa et all fans but I have to be honest about my critique.
