Fade into this
on 13 June 2013
I bought this rather than the first volume as it was slightly cheaper and it has the beautiful tracks Fade into you sung by Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen and Ho hey sung by the Stellar Stella sisters. Frankly it is worth the price just for the first track as it is is just a hauntingly brilliant duet. Ho hey is lovely and I suspect I am not the only one who thinks that the Stella sisters will be huge.
The rest of the tracks are all good, although I personally do not like Gun for a mouth but that is not a criticism of Sam Palladio who sings it well, it is just not my cup of tea.
If you like Nashville I would recommend this album, if you like country music I would recommend this album, if you just like good tunes beautifully sung, guess what, I would recommend this album.
July 2013 Edit: Having listened to this quite a few times now, it just gets better and better. "Gun for A Mouth" has grown on me, it provides a strong contrast to all the slightly softer haunting songs. Jonathan Jackson's song "Let There Be Lonely" (well to be honest his voice)is also growing on me. I think Hayden Panettiere does a great job on "We are Water" and the slightly harder "Nothing In This World Will Ever Break My Heart Again". For me everything by Clare Bowen is utterly compelling, equally personally I feel Connie Britton's songs are the weakest on the album but they are still very good. This is just a fantastically talented group of artists with some really good songs, from a fabulous show, hopefully there is lots more to come.
