Customer Review

on 8 November 2007
If you're here you obviously have a taste for impassioned, emotive rock. Music with depth, feeling and quality. The kind of music that stays with you past the first listen, past even the 20th listen. The kind of music that becomes an indespensible part of your life.

This is Puressence.

Only Snow Patrol and Radiohead at their best come close. And it's a crime of the greatest magnitude that this band's name doesn't trip off the tongue as readily as "OK Computer" "Run" or (God help us...) "Coldplay" when those "best of..." lists come round.

This, their fourth album, eschews some of the open and melancholic soundtracks of previous releases and ups the ampage to produce a superb, almost wall-of-sound effect. It washes over you with James's voice a shining diamond in the barrage. It's a unique voice, to be sure, but utterly spellbinding.

Please, if you're even a little tempted, just take five minutes and look at the reviews and stars for Puressence's previous three albums.

They are:
Only Forever
Planet Helpless

This is not advertising or sloganeering, this band have been the BEST band in the country for almost ten years. Be warned though, if you buy one you will buy all four.
