NOT as good as O

Some great songs, but this album is certainly not as good as O.

There is no singer-songwriter yet to have existed, that can pour as much melancholic passion, angst and raw emotion into any song and make it sound so intricate and beautiful. Damien Rice, thus far, has achieved this on every song he and his band have ever made. Unequivocal perfection. Bliss to the ears and to the soul.

Probably one of the best singer song writers of his generation, if not of all time. If your a true music lover you must have his two albums in your collection. He does'nt churn music out every couple of years, he creates master pieces !!

Better than o

I first noticed Damien Rice while watching closer, when i first heard the blower's daughter-been hooked ever since. Really rate the first album, but feel this one goes a step further. Much more raw and much more emotional-Damien's voice gives it away much more in this album. My favouite is accidential babies-stirs memories in a way other music just cannot. Must have album for any music fan.

Not quite as good as O...

... but still a good CD! 9 Crimes is a beautiful song, I also like Rootless Tree. Got it for £2.99 so really can't complain!! Definitely worth what I paid!

A more complete album offering from Damien
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 18/09/2008 23:21:55
This album took me long time to get used to but when it finally clicked, i fell in love with it. I think you have to be in the right frame of mind to listen to it. Its got the feeling of an autumn/winter album and is relaxing to listen to. So whats different about this album compared to "O"? Not much as its more of the same but i do think Damien surpasses himself. His emotions are so vocally strong in these songs especially rootless tree which i never got on the first listen but i think its his best offering, if you see the video i doubt you will see a song sung with so much emotion. Other than Rootless tree its not got another really strong song unlike "O" which had Cannonball and Blowers daughter. But the songs flow more on this album and they dont fade out after 5 songs like on "O". Lisa again is great harmonising with Damien (its a shame they have parted ways now) and you can even hear a piano in these songs. Its a must buy for those who loved 'O' but be patient or the album will be lost on you.

not as good as 'O' but still great. his songwriting is amazing however i dno what happened with the choros of 'Rootless Trees'. You'll understand if you've heard it.

9 Reasons to buy this album...
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 05/05/2007 18:06:11
1 - It is full to the brim with emotion.
2 - It's an album that you can really connect with the music.
3 - Damien's voice is as good as ever.
4 - His lyrics mean something, they're not just thrown together.
5 - When you're in a mellow mood their is no better than this.
6 - The perfect successor to 'O'.
7 - Lisa Hannigan. The female voice you've probably heard in '9 Crimes' is the perfect companion to Damien's. Adds more depth to the music.
I can't think of an 8th or 9th but seriously it is a really good album. Perhaps not on equal footing with 'O' but his voice is beautiful and he is showing what he has to offer for future albums, which is a lot by the sounds of it.
