Stunning. A stunning peice of magic.
Its currently 2003, and about to into 2004 and i'm reviewing this album which was released in 1997.
The voice, the music, the lyrics... just 100% top stuff.
Do I Qualify
This sold me the album and it was just the first track. One of the album's corkers if not the best track. Just cool, and funky. The lyrics are great "I may be ugly as sin and he may look like a king"
My David Hall's biggest hit. Should be familiar to the more educated music listeners. Its timeless and you won't get bored of this. The voice is once again just so soulful. The beat just goes with the heart. Superb. 10
"Hold up baby, Hold Up Girl"... are the first words .. and it instantly grips you. The tune is again fantastic. The lyrics are beautiful and honest. Its another great track. 9
There Goes My Sanity
How many times have a guy said or thought this. When a girl leaves you with no explination is the theme here. Its the first example of how Lynden sees women as mean and cruel beings, yet us men can't live without them.
"I'm in love and its killing me baby" 8
One Hundred Heart Attacks
"I pity the man that loves you, you ain't gonna love him right back, only a fool would need you, like a hundred heart attacks"
That is powerful stuff. Its a track about a woman who you love so much but really is just messing you about. Its a fantastic song. 9
Livin' The Lie
Once the tune starts up, I instantly fell in love with this song. Its a song about life and how every day is hard. But faith in god can stop you from livin the lie. Its just a great song. Lyden David Hall is producing such fantastic music. 9
The Jimmy Lee Story
Different sounding track but another top top notch one. This song is a story ...which I think you can work out! But its once again about how loving a woman comes at a cost. 10
Yellow In Blue
Another beautiful track. The first line is Lynden once again giving his take on relationships, and how shaky starts can strengthen hearts. Its such a cool song. 9
I Wish I Knew
A tale of a girl doing us guys wrong. Lynden is wondering how they've lasted this long even though the girl is treating him so wrong and shes knows she is. More powerful stuff. 9
Its a good track but i've been used to fantastic tracks on this album. Its a nice song but not as good as some of the others. 7
The title track is a kind of acoustic number. Its such a brillient and emotive song. Its one of those you just stop doing anything and just listen to the words. Its a sad song but so soulful.
Do Angels Cry
The best song on the album.
I've got many many many albums and have heard many many many songs in my lifetime... but this may be the most beautiful. The lyrics are just some of the best I have heard. Its simply an acoustic song but just out of this world. Lynden's voice is mesmerizing, and theres almost a sense of sadness about the song.
Its beautiful 10 +
There Goes My Sanity [Full Crew Mix}
Not that much different to the original. Nothing particular special.
Sexy Cinderella [CandJ Remix]
Cant beat the orginal... they shouldn't have tried!
One of my favourite albums of all time.
Soulful, beautiful and just damn right fantastic.
