5.0 out of 5 stars Richer, deeper and adorable, 2 Feb 2010
This review is from: The Sea (Audio CD)
Whereas CBR's first album was put in the 'pop' category by many, with its bright and breezy tunes, this album is so much more mature and weightier in emotion. For me, it's better for that, more heartfelt and personal.

CBR draws on a greater range of musical influences than previously so there's more to engage with on each listen. In places her voice rises and swells effortlessly and in other places it is entangled and caught in painful undergrowth. This contrast only increases the albums authenticity and connection with the listener. The emotional journey reaches its peak on Love's On Its Way which builds to a great crescendo. There's more noticeable percussion and guitar work to admire on this album than on her debut and the string arrangements where they appear are just delicious.

Given the turbulence of CBR's last few years this is a courageous album that cannot fail to stir the listener. I hope that 'The Sea' reaches the end of 2010 as an album of the year.
