5.0 out of 5 stars Pete Murray still brilliant!, 20 Feb. 2006
This review is from: See the Sun (Audio CD)
An earlier reviewer expressed disappointment with Pete Murray's second album 'See the Sun', but I have to say that I love it now as much as the first. Both took a while to grow on me. Murray has a distinctive and consistent style which initially makes the tracks seem a bit similar to each other, but once the details become more familiar then beautiful distinctions come clear. And here we have a true range from the quiet ballad 'Lost Soul' to the joyously danceable 'Remedy'.
As for lyrics, how can one go past the full-on declaration of love in 'Remedy' - 'You will be the sun, When you rise you start my day' - or the heartfelt challenge to 'Come on, be what you mean' in 'Class A'. I admit the chorus of 'Fly With You' seems a bit banal, but perhaps only because the verses and overall story are so wise. Wiser still is 'Securities', which to me is about being trapped in too ordinary a life by the need to feel safe - 'I've been passing hours of my days, Selling books and things, I've been spending years of my life, Having securities.'
But so much of the meaning of this album is in Murray's amazing voice and the beautiful music - it seems pointless to excerpt bare scraps of lyrics here. And alas I'm not musician enough to really describe what Murray does or how he does it. But I do find it all just as heartfelt and edgy and beautiful as 'Feeler'.
If you liked or loved 'Feeler', my suggestion is to give 'See the Sun' a try, and another try or two just in case. I'm sure you'll be rewarded.
