fantastic chill out album,
By A Customer
This review is from: No Name Face (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the strength of the fantastic 'Hanging by the Moment' single, and I was expecting a full album of songs like that. So when I listened to the cd for the first time, I couldn't help but feel under whelmed by so many slow, chill out songs. But I listened to it a few more times, and it started to grow on me, and now it's one of my favourite records. It's easy to miss the heart felt vocals, deep lyrics and wonderful melodies after just one listen, but if you persist then you really start to uncover each songs hidden beauty. And you'll be thinking 'this songs pretty good, how come I never noticed it before now?'
The album is very strong, the best songs besides the obvious 'Hanging by the Moment' are 'Simon' and 'Unknown', but all the tracks are extremely impressive, especially for such a young band, making only their first proper release.
So rock fans expecting a rock album, be aware that the only really rock song on this record is 'Hanging by the Moment' the rest of the album is a lot more laid back. But in this case, that not a bad thing.
Overall this is a great record, but it’s not the type of record I first expected it to be.
