A powerful, emotional album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sea [Digipak] (Audio CD)
I bought Corinn Bailey Rae's two albums after listening to her on BBC Radio 4's Mastertapes.
The first album is joyful, happy, full of sunshine.
This is completely different. Here are songs of pain, of loss, of grief. At times the raw emotion is almost overpowering (I'd Do It All Again, for example. But the album grabs you from the very start of Are You Here? to the end of the title track, The Sea. And within, there are songs that, to me at least, show hope for the new future.
This album has really grown on me with repeated listening. Agood addition to every collection.
