Biography

AQUALUNG

Aqualung's Matt Hales thought he had it all figured out. In 2007, the British singer/songwriter told a London audience that he was retiring. "I'd had enough of it at that point and thought I might just be a teacher or do something else."

However, the stellar batch of tunes that make up his new Verve album, "Magnetic North," came calling and they ... Read more in Amazon's Aqualung Store

I bought Aqualung's follow up LP expecting it to be merely an extension or olive branch from what the debut gave us - melancholic, reflective and beautiful piano melodies. Of course, it delivers perfectly once again in this area of the album structure but there's certainly a difference in the sound of the two albums. 'Still Life' sounds like Aqualung from the core elements of the music, but its clear Matt Hales has decided to tinker with his winning formula by adding a bigger sound scope. More guitar elements, drums and other instrumentation help make this a much more diverse record than the first. I never thought they'd better the self titled debut, but they've quite possibly exceeded all expectations by delivering something fans of the old material will love whilst attracting a new legion with the progression they've made.
'Brighter Than Sunshine' is the perfect opener, a great pop song which has a great chorus and extemely uplifting. 'Left Behind' is perhaps the loudest part of the album and its here where you begin to see the diversity on offer. Matt sings the chorus here very passionately and its a song which develops to a mid-pace rock out. 'You Turn Me Around' and 'Easier To Lie' are next up, and in my view the best two tracks on the album. You Turn Me Around brings the sound back to a softer tone and features quite possibly the best lyrics on the enitre record. It's a beautiful, powerful piano led song and needs to be heard to be beleived. Easier To Lie however will lift you back up, it has a wonderful sweeping chorus and melody that just has the ability to make you feel good. '7 Keys' and 'Breaking My Heart Again' are the other stand out tracks and see the tone return once more to where Aqualung feel most at home.

I think this is every bit as good as the first record, in fact I prefer it. Yes it's different in places, more upbeat at times, but the space is still there and the songs are still beautiful. I agree It doesn't slap you around the face the first time you play it quite like the first one did, but it does on the second play. I really wish some of the reviewers here had taken time to give this a good listen to instead of judging it on what I suspect was a quick listen (probably in order to get their reviews on here asap).

Second album time for Matt Hales, and it's time for him to prove he's not just a one trick horse. "Strange and Beautiful" was both strange and beautiful, but the rest of his self-titled debut was ok at best; although on occasion it reached the brilliant intimacy of the single, most of it felt distinctly half-baked.
So, has he managed it? Brighter Than Sunshine kicks things off nicely, and the lingering doubt that this will just be another Volkswagon Advert will dissipate as soon as "Left Behind", easily a match for anything Coldplay have done, kicks in. It seems Hales has discovered the wonders of the recording studio; as well as a lusher accompaniment of strings to his piano, strange and often compelling sounds litter the album. But it is far from overproduced- the man knows where to draw the line, and everything melts together perfectly. "Another Little Hole" and "Take Me Home" are brilliantly numb break-up pieces; Hales shatters his voice at the beginning of "Breaking My Heart Again" for almost uncomfortably intimate effect. And what is that sound at the beginning of "7 Keys"? It sounds like a wave breaking gently against an electronic beach, or the world's friendliest TV snow. Either way, it's a fitting opening for a defiantly cheery song.
Matt Hales is both a musical talent and a master at break up albums. It's time he's recognised as such.

I bought this CD on the strength of "Brighter Than Sunshine" which is a fantastic opener to a thought-provoking CD. Matt Hales is clearly a talent to be reckoned with as far as writing heartfelt, emotional tracks is concerned, although a few struck me as a bit durgy. Standout tracks for me are "Easier To Lie", "Another Little Hole" and "Left Behind". Unfortunately, the album finishes on a bit of a sour note for me (hence the four stars), but is still a sound purchase, and great for a cosy night in.

I liked the first album but found it to be quite varied. It has some moments of greatness and some disapointing songs at the same time.
Still life seems to be a more complete album and has some beautful songs. The arrangements seem to have taken a step up this time and his songwriting skills are as good as before.
If you liked the last one you should like this one. If you didn't like the last one then give this a try, it's more complete and probably more accessible as well.

A perfect second album, different enough to remain interesting with more upbeat songs like 7 keys and and still beautiful enough to be able to recognise the beautiful piano skills and lyrics of matt hales. With a cheerful song to welcome you in and a peaceful quiet song to send you to sleep feeling at peace and wishing you could write as beautifully as matt it has a variety of songs for a variety of feelings. Defines Perfect

Aqualung is, and will continue to be a fantastic songwriter.
He create sublime and enchanting piano riffs, polished off with his distant singing melodies.
Whether you like this album all depends on wether you get bored with this sort of music. I you only like your music to give you a good beat, then forget it, this is what I would call a musicians musician. Technically its fabulous.
