Until Tomorrow, Then...,
This review is from: The Beautiful Lie (Audio CD)
When a new Ed Harcourt album comes along, the word "predictable" can never be used to describe it. Each collection of beautifully-crafted songs fluctuates between light-hearted joyousness, cracked heartbreakers and epic soundscapes that take the listener's breath away.
The Beautiful Lie is as glorious as Harcourt's small army of devoted fans hoped it would be. Standout tracks include the jawdroppingly beautiful "Rain on the Pretty Ones" and "Braille", a charmingly shambolic "I Am the Drug" and the sumptuous "Revolution in the Heart".
Harcourt's talent positively pours from this album, which captures the energy and atmosphere of his wonderful live show better than any of its predecessors. Buy this album. Dim the lights, sit back, and enjoy.
