This album has done so much for me.
I received 'Here Be Monsters' as a gift from my brother for Christmas and was dubious. Believing as I did, that he was more of the David Gray mould (great, but not exactly my favourite). But I loved it and bought this, his second Album. (Technically his third, the EP 'Maplewood' not really an album as such.) I bought it and took it to Paris with me.
I was enjoying the album all week when I went to the Eiffel Tower and watching in the gathering gloom as the lights began to glow... There is a point in the title track "From Every Sphere" where a small explosion goes off on beat. As that happened the tower exploded itself into bright sparkling lights. From that point on my view of the world is slightly different and this album was instrumental in that.
Pointless anecdote I know, but this album is a treasure trove of emotion, musical dexterity and wonderful design. Songs like "All of Your Days Will Be Blessed" and "The Birds Will Sing For Us" make you smile, while "Bleed A River Deep" and "Sister Renee" have, literally made me cry. With samples, programmed beats, harmonious vocals, loud guitars, drums and Bass, sweeping orchestral scores and vignette creating lyrics, there is more than a touch of the Beatles about it's production but every second is never over-egged. In many places so achingly sparse you long for the baroque-esque piano at the centre of all his songs to burst into a full band.
It has served as a theme tune to my life over the last year when a lot has happened. My first long-term relationship, advancing careers and my father battling with Cancer. That alone shows the scope of the music on this album.
Ed is a songwriter born. A blessing in itself.

Last year EMI predicted the albums that they estimated would be 2003's million-plus sellers. Ed Harcourt was among the hallowed list. If ever an album deserved to elevate it's creator to superstar status then Harcourt's second album-proper, 'From Every Sphere', is most certainly it.
Following 'Here Be Monsters' is a challenge that few would relish. The Sussex singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist's full debut mixed the kind of lovelorn melodies that drew Elliott Smith and Harry Nilsson comparisons, with a darker, gothic (without the goth) edge, reminiscent of Tom Waites in his prime. If anything, From Every Sphere has taken the darker elements of his debut and run with it.
Tracks such as 'Ghostwriter' and 'Undertaker Strut' demonstrate admirably Harcourt's ability to mix true flair with the truly sinsiter. It is an edge that propells him away from the uninspired so-called 'New Acoustic Movement' and into the league dominated by artists of a more three dimensional realm. However,nobody can wirte a love song quite like Harcourt. 'Sister Renee' is as mournful a slice of meloncholy you will hear all year and 'Fireflies Take Flight' is simply gorgeous.
The beauty of this album is the staggering variety. Yes, Harcourt excels at the downbeat, sunkissed piano-led paens to heartache, but in 'Watching Then Sun Come Up', single 'All Of Your Days Will Be Blessed' and 'The Birds Will Sing For Us', he has more than matched the verve and soaring melodies reached on 'Here Be Monster's' 'Hanging With The Wrong Crowd' and 'Apple Of My Eye'.
So will Harcourt be this year's credible artist to achieve that rarest of things: critical and commerical success? Probably not.

Combining witty, sorrowful, vitriolic and sentimental lyrics with truly stunning melodies ranging from light, simple hum-along songs to soaring, multi-layered desk-thumping foot-tapping anthems (latest single Watching the Sun Come Up being a prime example), this album has something for everyone. It's true this genius is evidently inspired by the madcap experimentalism of Tom Waits, and this can only be a positive thing. This influence is most noticeable on the adventurous "Ghost Writer" and "Undertaker Strut", two prime examples of Harcourt's fearlessness and flair for the unusual. At the other end of the scale, "Sister Renee" and "Bleed a River Deep" are bittersweet ballads loaded with emotion and gentleness. My personal favourites have got to be "Bittersweetheart" and "The Birds Will Sing For Us" - sweet melodies, Harcourt's beautiful vocals, and with jazzy, catchy rhythms that stay in the head to keep your toes tapping.
As well as huge musical and lyrical talent, this young man's voice is probably his greatest asset, at times velvet-smooth and rich, at others cracked and gravelly, with immense range. Everything about this album is perfect. Once it nears the stereo there's no taking it off. Class.

Much like 'Here Be Monsters' - 'From Every Sphere' opens perfectly. Bittersweat and the birilliant All Of Your Days Will Be Blessed are album highlights along with Watching The Sun Come Up and Fireflies Take Flight. If you liked his first then you will love this. Ed hasn't gone for a 'clean' sound that he so easily could have afforded after the success of his first. Instead it sounds like he has produced this album alot more than his first yet in a way that makes it sound less produced. If you buy the album you will understand what I mean. His voice sounds distant yet every little bit as haunting as Lennons does on Anthology 2. Ed has matured whilst still keeping the style that he established so brillianty on Maplewood and Here Be Monsters. Something only truly gifted artists can do - and Ed is certainly one of those.
