Best Album of the Year
on 21 November 2010
Unruly Child are back and it has been far too long. Marcie Free sounds amazing and their unique sound remains.
As soon as the opening track starts, you know exactly who it is and the following tunes are just fantastic. The band retains what made them great while still giving us something new; genius!
I've been through the album at least 10 times now; this album has depth of such beauty it beggars belief. Marcie free has a God given talent, with a voice layered with power and emotion; this album is just so sweet.
Song 1: A nod to their previous album and to their fans which gets better with every listen.
Song:2: Reeks of their sound, with an initially James Bond feel, again gets better with every listen.
Song 3: Balls and a killer harmony ridden chorus.
Song 4: A touching balled showcasing Marcie's voice. A killing chorus and OMG these guys are amazing.
Song 5: The song's rhythm reminds me of the 80's computer game Spy Hunter, but the song gives many glorious tingles throughout.
Song 6: The title's name-sake song is a slower grower (not a slow grower, a slower grower, relative to the other songs.) keyboards pound with a stupendous modern overtone, which is just treacle.
Song 7: This is possibly my favourite and at first it reminded me of Hotel California, but that changes quickly. Marcie's vocal sounds truely amazing, and is perfectly matched to this beautiful song; it reminds me of so many other things.
Somg 8: This song is my least favourite, it's dark and pointy, but is still bloody great. If the (personally speaking) weakest song on the disc is great, you can't go wrong.
Song 9: A Capella hoo-hoos start the song, followed by Marc Cohen/Vanessa Carlton-esque sounding piano. This track is a melody extravaganza, with emotional tingles left right and centre, so cool, and sweeter with every listen.
Song 10: Big rhythm to start; a more country feel kicks in, and it sounds GOOD!
Song 11: Melody comes early and continues into...loads more, plain beautiful, love it! Love all of it!
Song 12: A very AOR beginning brings an acoustic camp-fire tune.(A campfire tune performed by geniuses).
Invest in this album, because that is what it is, an investment.
