High - The Sky Is The Limit,
This review is from: High (Audio CD)
As the Blue Nile have repeatedly proved in the past with beautifully crafted songs like Tinseltown In The Rain, the end always justifies the means; being the enduring wait for a new release for adoring fans who are in the meantime sustained by the three previous albums, A Walk Across The Rooftops, Hats and Peace At Last. The real essence of their magic is the depth of feeling Paul Buchanan is able to inject into the songs with a few carefully chosen words, often sung with a haunting quality that only adds lustre. A Blue Nile album is a rare thing of beauty and High doesn't disappoint. Stand out songs include I Would Never, Because Of Toledo, High (my personal favourite) and Stay Close.
