5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it... Buy it now... NOW! 8 Nov 2007
By Sera69
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're here you obviously have a taste for impassioned, emotive rock. Music with depth, feeling and quality. The kind of music that stays with you past the first listen, past even the 20th listen. The kind of music that becomes an indespensible part of your life.

This is Puressence.

Only Snow Patrol and Radiohead at their best come close. And it's a crime of the greatest magnitude that this band's name doesn't trip off the tongue as readily as "OK Computer" "Run" or (God help us...) "Coldplay" when those "best of..." lists come round.

This, their fourth album, eschews some of the open and melancholic soundtracks of previous releases and ups the ampage to produce a superb, almost wall-of-sound effect. It washes over you with James's voice a shining diamond in the barrage. It's a unique voice, to be sure, but utterly spellbinding.

Please, if you're even a little tempted, just take five minutes and look at the reviews and stars for Puressence's previous three albums.

They are:
Only Forever
Planet Helpless

This is not advertising or sloganeering, this band have been the BEST band in the country for almost ten years. Be warned though, if you buy one you will buy all four.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic! 9 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
While bands like The Stone Roses are hailed for producing one great album, Puressence produce classic album after classic album and remain virtually unknown. Whether this will change with the release of this album is anyone's guess, but it's clear from the first crash of windswept opener 'Moonbeam' that this is another classic. Puressence excell at epic despair and widescreen emotion and make bands like Coldplay suddennly seem...well, a bit silly. Buy this, let it grow, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure essence of WOW! 11 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Eh, I do have the previous albums from these guys but to be honest I forgot a bit about them and assumed they had split up years ago, in view of lack of success. So I was pleasantly surprised to read a few weeks ago they had released a 4th album last year. This week I received it and since then: I'm in love. This must be their most balanced work so far, with 40 minutes of passion in rock. A wall of sound, James' beautiful voice, magical guitar, great production; this album has it all. Epic indie rock in best practice mode. So forget about The Killers, Coldplay etc. and give this one a try. You will end up with the WOW-feeling, definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't forget to remember....well, quite 18 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Whether the album title is an impassioned plea to bands fans, or a lover, i don't know. But, of course it equally applies to both...
This, their fourth album, is for me their finest to date. Jimmy's vocals definitely improve with age, especially on the slow-burning 'Brainwaves'.
Also, particular highlights include the gorgeous 'don't know any better' and 'sold unseen'
No, there isn't a weak track on here, and as mentioned below,the band remain virtually unknown while inferior rockers soar up the charts..
Maybe lead singer James should hook up with a movie star girlfriend, to get the coverage they desperatly need!
Well, it works for the increasingly irrelevant Coldplay.
But, for all the wonderful songs the boys have recorded over four albums, they still haven't released that instant killer single to propel them into the top 40.
Nevermind, keep up the good work, and let's not have to wait five years for the fifth album eh?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Barrage - Simply Amazing 30 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
Having come to the band late (early 2007), I was stunned and disappointed I'd not been introduced to them before - they are truly a massive band in waiting, and please don't anyone mention them in same breath as Coldplay or Radiohead, they are so much more interesting, exciting and engaging than those artists (who bore the pants off me) - if I would compare them to anyone it would be the brilliant Secret Machines. This album demands to be replayed the second it finishes and anyone of a certain age will grin like an idiot at the keyboard refrain in Palisades - I'll say no more, suffice to say you'll be thinking of a childhood character in a yellow tartan scarf.
For that alone I'll forgive James for leaping off stage in Brighton last year and whacking me in the stomach for heckling him - when it was some guy behind me, mistaken identity!
Please buy this album, you'll not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best 'Unknown' Band Ever 26 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
Five years on from their last offering, Failsworth's finest return with another set of blistering tunes, anthemic choruses and songs that are just instantly memorable. From the commerciality of singles Pallisades & Drop Down, to the harmonic beauty of Sold Unseen & Brainwaves, through to the power-laden Bitter Pill and Life Comes Down Hard, this album should be on everybody's indie hitlist for 2007. If you like this album, then the band's back catalogue is essential listening. Once heard, James Mudriczki's quite beautiful voice will haunt you forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning 20 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
I bought this when it first came out months ago but have just got round to reviewing it now. This, the fourth Puressence album, is compelling evidence that the band just gets better and better. To witness them live in concert is an amazing and moving experience. This is music which could move mountains, a wall of sound that stirs the soul and reinvigorates the senses. It's criminal that Puressence appear little- known outside their native Manchester (although they are massive in Greece). I first caught seem supporting The Chameleons at Summer in the City in 2001. Since then the four album releases have never been far from my CD player. Buy this, then go buy the back catalogue! You really will thank me for this.
