5.0 out of 5 stars God Machine - Scenes from the second storey, 8 May 2006
This review is from: Scenes from the Second Storey (Audio CD)
This is the first album from a 90s group that are crying out to be rediscovered. The music is a sublime mix of orchestral violins, dark and sometimes powerful guitar work and vocals aching with unrequited emotion. Moments of beauty, angst and melancholy have never been so exquisitely melded and presented. This is both hypnotic and mesmerising stuff and is best listened to as an entire album, rather than individual songs (even though the songs are of fine quality). Their next album, 'One last laugh in a place of dying' had moments of beauty that compared with the first one, but never quite made it. The loss of the God Machine's guitarist may well have taken a toll on the Machine's power. You would not regret purchasing this album...

Jimmy was the bass player, not the guitarist, and they had finished recording their second album before he so sadly died.
I agree this is the better album, but it has nothing to do with Jimmy's death.
Met Jimmy quite briefly after a gig, just a lovely guy, and I still feel so sad.
One of the best live bands ever, intense, and so so powerful, the gig in Islington will always stay with me.
