Alone W/Everybody ~ Richard Ashcroft
Alone W/Everybody ~ Richard Ashcroft
It'd be difficult to top, or even match, the quality of the last Verve album, but Ashcroft comes pretty close. The elements that made that album so great are here -- lots of wah-wah guitars, dramatic string arrangements, the country-rock touches -- but the clarity that marked "Urban Hymns" seems a bit lost, and the melodies are not quite as poignant (though still very good).
Nevertheless, this is a very strong album, and in the end it's extremely difficult not to be moved by Ashcroft's raw, heartfelt vocals.
