5.0 out of 5 stars Depressing but uplifting...., 13 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Memory of Loss (Audio CD)
The title says a lot about what this album is about. It is a very downbeat album with NR's vocals at the forefront of the mix and the more-often-than-not acoustic guitar playing 'second fiddle' (excuse the pun). It's a very emotional album too which at times sees him literally crying out in anger, pain and loss. Some of the lyrics are very obscure and don't make any kind of sense such as on Longing and Losing, 'I'd must be a ruin, I must that I am, And don't shortsight it's worth, it comes to steal mine....'. Odd but interesting. The only other criticisms (if you can call it that) I can level at this album is that NR sings in a slightly disjointed faltering way, as if he doesn't have much faith in his own voice which is a shame because he has an amazing voice. He also has a tendency to harmonise using his own layered vocal which, to my ears sounds too robotic. It would have been much better to have used other singers to harmonise with. I am really being critical here as I really like this album. It's heartfelt and powerful and strangely, considering the subject matter, rather uplifting. Best song - You should have seen the other guy. Brilliant.
