The Heart & The Broken Compass

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another decent rock group barely known outside America., 22 Dec. 2011
Purchased their last album Under the Silver of Machines for a few pound in a closing down sale and while it didn't blow me away it was solid with a handful of stand out tracks. Saw The Heart and the Broken Compass was being released and decided to take a chance on it, partly because I liked the name and the album cover and figured they wouldn't have strayed too far from their original sound. In fact this is a much better album, heavier than their earlier outing by and large with two or three genuinely decent ballads, although nothing too slow or maudlin. Most of their music sounds kind of anthemic. High lights for me are More Than You Know, Yellowbelly, Where We're Going We Don't Need Roads, and Arrows. The lyrics are stronger and most of the songs fairly short and direct. Anyone who thought Thirty Seconds to Mars last album was worth a listen would do well to take note; this is better without trying so hard to make fairly pointless and obvious statements.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Damn Shame., 26 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Let It Break (Audio CD)
Amidst a slew of vocal imitators and poorly written saccharine sweet female artists with nothing whatsoever to say Gemma hayes stands head and shoulders above the by and large mediocre crowd. At her best she is fit to rub shoulders with the likes of Aimee Mann and Shawn Colvyn to name a few of those rare female writers who actually write songs rather than pen pointless pop jingles. While her second album is still her best and most consistent effort this runs it a close second. Here we have more diversity than on any previous album save perhaps Night on my side, which while having several highlights was a little uneven. Stand out tracks are Keep Running, Shock to my system, and the best song on the album Ruin. A better effort than Hollow of the Morning and songs which deserve more airplay, and an artist who deserves more publicity. Maybe if she wore a meat dress and stuck a phone on her head people would take more notice; what a stupid world we live in.
