This review is from: O (Audio CD)
This cd is, for me, as close to musical perfection as you are going to get! Damien Rice's songs are achingly beautiful - gorgeous words threaded through uncluttered, largely acoustic arrangements, with the addition of Lisa Hannigan's haunting vocals combining perfectly with Damien's voice.
This is an album that has returned again and again to my cd player and will probably be deemed a classic album of the 'noughties' in years to come - if it isn't already. Certainly I think it is one of the definitive albums of the past 10 years and should reside in everyone's cd collection.
If you have not already heard him and enjoy acoustic songs with thought and feeling provoking words then this will reach out to you and sweep you away. Fans of David Grey, Stephen Fretwell, Kalai and Paolo Nutini will probably adore this.
I would urge anyone who does not have this to buy it, and, if you can, see him live too!
