Music of the Spheres

4 out of 5 stars
I haven't got this album (of 2001), but it has mysteriously come on our work stereo several times this week and I am enjoying it muchly. I'm too busy working to pay attention to it enough to choose a favourite track or two. But F.E.A.R. is a good opener.

Coldplay revoo

3 out of 5 stars

I'm sure this has been done absolutely everywhere else. But I'm curious to see people's verdicts. I've had a bit of an overdose of it on Radio 1's Coldplay day and Kerrang's NOT Coldplay day * snigger * and I am warming to a couple of the tracks, but I still think there's that something missing. I think it's Swallowed in the Sea that has a familiar sound to it, not that it sounds like another song, but I agree with Will and Guy (who appeared in an interview with Steve Lamacq on the Monday) that it does have that kind of feel that makes you think you might have heard it before.

Overall so far though, not as enthralled as I hoped I might be

Time to actually use this feature

4 out of 5 stars

I often forget that you can actually choose "review" as opposed to just writing an entry about it.

I've not listened to this album for absolutely ages, but when I was really into my geetar playing, and also into sleeping soundly (my how I miss those days), I thought it was amazing.

Jewel is an American actress/singer/wannabe poet and it has to be said that when I read stuff on the inlay, I was really quite scared. Disturbing descriptions of herself and such, and even the lyrics are a tad worrying in places.

However, in terms of overall feeling that I get from the album, I really really enjoy listening to it. Not only is it great for singing along to, but I love the blend of acoustic guitar and piano….I don't think I hear any other instruments all the way through.

Aside from the worrying lyrics, there are also some really mundane ones, such as "let the phone ring, let's go back to bed".

All in all her voice is quite haunting, kinda ethereal in places, and it makes me feel very relaxed.
