5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 5 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Trouble (Audio CD)
It is simply pointless to attempt to compare Ray with any other artist - he is in a league of his own. I've now seen him play live twice - and both turned into one of the most powerful and amazing nights of my life. A shy, breakable figure with a mournful face that might have faded into insignificant, if it were not for his staggeringly powerful voice, that hardly seems to stem from the same mouth that whispers his painfully shy greeting. He sings from the gut - sharing his innermost thoughts and hopes.

There is not one skippable song on this album - few can failed to be moved by 'Hannah' ('I would walk one mile on just broken glass to fall down at your feet'), stirred by 'How Come', or able to identify with 'Jolene' ('I still don't know what love is'). Stand out track for me is the spine-tingling 'Burn' ('Try to ignore, all this blood on the floor, it's just this heart on my sleeve that's bleeding').

Utterly significant in today's world but with the class and beauty of the oldies. Ray's songs sound like they should be classics - whilst listening to him, it's easy to imagine that you have been raised listening to his edgy guitar chords and rousing strings.

There is not one flaw on this album, it is simply absolute perfection.
