DANIEL O'DONNELL RETURNS TO RELIGIOUS / SACRED MUSIC FOR HIS LATEST ALBUM, THE FIFTH SUCH ALBUM HE HAS RELEASED IN HIS CAREER (NOT COUNTING LIVE ALBUMS).
DANIEL HIMSELF DESCRIBED THE ALBUM IN PROMOTIONAL INTERVIEWS AS "A COUNTRY GOSPEL ALBUM" AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU GET.
THE SONGS ARE ESPECIALLY WELL CHOSEN AND MADE THAT MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE GIVEN THE CRYSTAL CLEAR VOCALS THAT DANIEL SEEMS TO GIVE ON EVERY RECORDING HE MAKES.
MANY SONGS WILL BE WELL KNOWN TO US IN THE UK SUCH AS "PEACE IN THE VALLEY", "PRECIOUS MEMORIES" AND "I'LL FLY AWAY" AND THESE SIT WELL ALONGSIDE PERHAPS LESSER FAMILIAR TITLES SUCH AS "MANSION ON THE HILLTOP" AND "FAR SIDE BANKS OF JORDAN".
IF YOU'RE A FAN OF DANIEL O'DONNELL OF COURSE YOU'LL LOVE THIS BUT IF YOU'RE ALSO A FAN OF RELIGIOUS MUSIC OR JUST EASY LISTENING MUSIC IN GENERAL YOU SHOULD ENJOY THIS.
This is Daniel's BASS album. It's all bass. It's all him playing bass. Some is solo bass, some is layered, multi layered bass. It has been described as Metal Box meets Stars Of The Lid. Jah Wobble said that this is the most important bass album ever made. Listening to it with my £86,000 B&O active speakers this album certainly does rumble sonically. The vinyl album version is even better. On my £22,000 tweaked Linn Sondecker Mark VII it can make the room shake and cause local earthquakes. Daniel is a master at bass playing and he got Tony Visconti in to produce this bassifficly thunderful album which on the last track produces "the brown noise" so watch out for that and have a bucket beside you. Very good deep album by the man who is a master...Thee Master...thee man who is thee bassis for bass.
