Another grower from The Hours,
This review is from: See The Light (Audio CD)
The Hours kicked off in magnificent style with their debut album Narcissus Road. An album full of incisive and cutting edge songs with great tunes and better lyrics.
Suffice to say that with See The Light, I was really looking forward to hearing how they'd moved things forward. Sadly, I am not sure that they have, instead they've kind of stayed in the same kind of territory, but with songs that don't quite have the clout of Narcissus Road.
I have listened through the album 4 or 5 times now, which might not sound like much, but bearing in mind the average number of listens to most new purchases is, er 1, I think I am in a position to judge.
Now, months after having writtin my first review, I have to say that as usual the quality of The Hours songwriting does start hitting the mark and that, surely is the best sign of quality songwriting. It is a strong record that gets better and better and I hope that in time, they get their just desserts.
That is to say, the success of a great band.
