5.0 out of 5 stars
Take me to the church Sinéad goes to!, 16 Aug 2014
"Songs of longings but fulfilled
Songs that don't let you sit still
Songs that mend your broken bones
And don't leave you alone"
-'Take me to Church'
After the first listen I wasn't that impressed with this record as a whole although several strong songs stood out immediately. After a few rounds the tracks I first found weak and didn't find much melody and rhythm in began to work, and the record gains structure and simply gets better and better with every listen.
What's interesting about Sinéad as an artist is that she's never afraid of experimenting and trying out new genres/ concepts. I respect that. Every album -I have all of them- is something new in a way. Not sticking to 'same, same, safe' and what is perhaps expected has it's 'risks' depending of course on what you want to achieve and experience. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't quite. This time it does!
