A sublime 'sleeper' album
on 10 July 2000
Glimmer is an album that grows on you until you can't understand why people don't rave about it on a first hearing (even though you didn't yourself).
Over a period of time you find yourself choosing new favourite tracks. It doesn't immediately stand out commercially but the quality of the songwriting, the musicianship and the overall distinctive sound are evident straight away and the album gains an almost hypnotic hold through the sublime music.
Glimmer is a good word to sum up the music's effect. The overall sound is like a subtle, sparkling glimmering which becomes more and more attractive and eventually you end up happily playing the album over and over again.
A real 'music' album. A real songwriter, a real musician. Wonderful.
