5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected treasure..., 13 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Kill the Last Romantic [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
I have to say I hadn't heard of Easyworld before I saw the video for ''Til The Day' on some music channel, and the song stuck in my head and wouldn't leave.
One of the most satisfying aspects of this album are the lyrics and the delivery. There are some brilliant lyrics here, clever without being pretentious, heart wrenching without being cliched, and Dav Ford's voice is an impressive instrument itself. Don't get me wrong - the music and instrumentation are great also, with some uncommon instruments sounding perfect for the brilliantly composed songs they are played in (the electric slide guitar in 'You Have Been Here' and the organ and subtle harmonica in '2nd Amendment' are just a few).
The song 'Tonight' stopped me dead in my tracks. It is possibly one of the loveliest songs I've heard in many years.
There are songs of many different styles here - all out power-pop-rock of '2nd Amendment', to the late night lament of 'Tonight' to the country twang of 'You Have Been Here'. Thankfully, it doesn't sound messy having so many different types though - everything gels together very well indeed.
The bonus disc is a nice inclusion and offer different perspectives of the original tracks, though I think I prefer the main disc (although the casino version of 'When You Come Back, I Won't Be Here' is cheesily brilliant).
I have changed the stars for this a few times whilst writing from four to five to four etc (and I've given loads of five star reviews of late - something I never thought I'd do as I'm usually a little more critical!). But, I'm going to be generous and give this FIVE stars - if only to show what a great album I think it is.
Enjoy!
