The first album was an absolute joy, but for my money had a couple of tracks that filled, in amongst sheer genius, and it became 5 stars purely for the fine Acoustics versions. This effort however flows more consistantly, and is dark haunting and poignant throughout. Stand out tracks well, really hard to say as they all have their moments when their come to the surface. the album was a 4 star for me until I saw them live and thereafter the album has been on repeat and gets status as a 5 star effort.
It is one of those rare breed of albums where theres no need to press skip !!!!
My personal favourite tracks are Again, Missing and the evocative Arise with its inspirational yet haunting refrain.
A band that desrves so much more recognition this side of the pond, and Laceys vocal is fragile, ethereal and brutal in equal measures.
