Format: Audio CD
From the opening sublime strums of the title track,to the final haunting shuffles of "In My Arms", this album is sumptuous in it's smoothness. The music weaves intricately on guitar, piano, bass, drums and strings over which the frail beauty of Emmett Tinley's voice soars. Highlights include the heartbreaking beauty of "It Hurts To Lose You", the romantic swoon of "Dark Green" but "Dead Flowers" stands out in the way it builds up to an emotional climax.
Along the way encounter the frail angst of "Saved", rollercoaster rumbles of "Balance", the sultry "Soon The Stars Will Steer Me", the stomping power of "Paralysed" and the angry unrequited surge of "Was This Love". The running order is perfect and makes for an album that demands every twist of melody and each loaded lyric to be listened to.
This import version loses the weakest track off the 1999 original and makes it a more consistant and compelling masterpiece this sadly overlooked Irish band, who have been together for more than 10 years now. If you like "Astral Weeks" period Van Morrison, soulful tunes and the simple virtues of timeless, well crafted songs then this album is for you.

One of the greatest albums to come out in years. Emmett Tinley masterfully floats through each song carrying us along with him. The prayer boat have put together a timeless album that can be meaningfull to all who listen. Polichinelle is melodic, dramatic, and displays pure talent. A must buy for true talent hunters.

The Prayer Boat are never going to be the type of band who will play sell out shows at the Point or sell out 10,000 capacity tents ala Radiohead. This is not such a bad thing though. For one reason, their music is too precious to work as well on such a large scale. This record is much more suited to the intimate surroundings of a smoky Whelans on a Friday night.
It twists its way through 11 broken love songs. At times we see Emmet Tinley's ability to carve out a wonderful tune, for instance on the radio-friendly Polichinelle or the grooves of Slow Down, however unfortunately it may not be enough to force a spot on the playlists of day time radio, and perhaps the band will never get the recognition that they deserve for this record.
At times though Tinley manages to create some of the most beautiful love songs imaginable; sad, moving and often dark lyrics combined with sweetly sung vocals on tracks such as Saved create images of the emotion and commitment one would associate with Jeff Buckley. Musically though the band adopt a more stripped down approach, with light spinning acoustic guitars.
The feelings embedded in the album run right through all 11 tracks and It Hurts To Lose you seems to glisten with its melancholy and sadness, and it's centred on Tinley's emotive lyrics, which are steeped in regret.
The sweeping Dark Green and Balance weighing in at just under four minutes also possess the melodic edge perfect for radio, however, unfortunately this album is almost certainly going to go unnoticed by most. This is a beautiful record that seems to take you deeper into Tinley's troubled life and pain each time you listen to it
