5.0 out of 5 stars Charming 3 Nov 2012
By downkiddie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This tender and melodious album from this cracking band is getting some deserved attention thanks to its lead singer, "Downton Abbey" star Elizabeth McGovern.

McGovern has a most pleasant voice, strikingly similar to her speaking voice, sounding like a more mellow Debbie Harry. By turns sultry and innocent, her voice fits the music like a glove. On-screen daughter Michelle Dockery provides backing vocals.

The simple and smooth arrangements have folky and country inflections, with occasional forays into lightly smooth jazz. It's a very relaxing and pleasant accompaniment to the day. Guitar, piano and a little tin whistle and steel guitar merge to a consistent sound. The musicianship on display here is superb, and highly accomplished.

For the most part the lyrics don't seek to make bold statements, it's the simple joys of life and domestic matters which are at the fore. None more so than on "The Cow Song": being happy with a loved one, watching a field of cows... "it's nice to watch the way they chew/I'm glad you brought me here with you". These simple observations and the innocent pleasure and wholesome charm don't mire the songs in humdrum detail however - it's smooth and pleasant through and through. There's variety here though and both sides of the coin are explored.

This is a mature and accomplished album. For the most part a mellow and relaxing listen, something to chill out to and smile. The overall feel is warm and optimistic, an ode to simple pleasures and the good life. Very enjoyable and enormously likeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection! 21 Nov 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic album: pure perfection! I constantly have it playing when I'm completing University work as it has the right blend of up-tempo and more sedate music. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking feel good music! 14 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My whole family fell in love with The Cow Song, and I love Downton so had to give this a chance! So glad I did! Its my No 1 album at the moment, with me in the car, the bath, and even making the cleaning a worth while chore as I sing along to it! Everytime I listen to the album I have a new favourite but especially love The Cow Song, Nothing New, Use it Up and LA Days.
If your looking for an album to take you away from it all with haunting melodies and amazing vocals then get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than "I Can Wait" 6 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just love this album. I think it's better than the first album they made (it's a bit more "fun"). If you need something new and slightly different, go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, mesmerising and relaxing 6 Nov 2012
By Ellie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In all honesty the best way I can describe this album is like a delicious piece of pie you want to last forever. The songs are relaxing and sweet, and it doesn't at all feel like a forced album trying to impress with something it's not(I find a lot of music nowadays gives me that impression..). It's down to earth and honest. Charming lyrics. And catchy; stuck in my head, for sure.

I am absolutely in love with Elizabeth McGovern's voice, not to speak of Michelle Dockery's! Amazing performances, all blending together very well.

Just buy this album, curl up under a blanket with a cup of tea or whatever and ENJOY!

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 4 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've seen Elizabeth Mcgoven singing with the band on tv and thought she and the songs were very good and unusual. I must say though the cd is very disappointing as the sounds are weak and sound like a cd's been made on the cheap. I wouldn't buy another by this band as much as I do actually like the songs on it and know the band can sound much better than the cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening anytime 14 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw Elizabeth McGovern being interviewed and singing a track from this cd on tv. The style of Sadie and the Hotheads is very much a cross between folk and country.

Very good and I look forward to hearing more from them.

This cd is easy listening and different from the general type of music. So refreshing to hear a new sound. Hope to hear more from Sadie, aka Elizabeth McGovern.
