Content with Divine Discontent
Posted August 23, 2007
By Consumed,


Divine Discontent was Sixpence's first album after more than 3 years. It was pretty much worth the wait. Leigh Nash's uniquely sweet-sounding voice and Matt Slocum's lyrics and musical arrangements give Sixpence None The Richer a good sound. This album starts off with the album's first radio hit "Breathe Your Name". "Tonight" is a surprisingly cheerful song about the difficulty of choosing direction. "Down And Out Of Time" sounds okay, but I was slightly bored with it. The next song, "Don't Dream It's Over", is a cover of the 1980's song by the band Crowded House. Melodic and original, "Still Burning" is next. "Melody Of You" is a highlight of the album with its worshipful lyrics and beautiful string arrangements. "Paralyzed" completely mixes things up with a very different rock sound. "Eyes Wide Open" is unusual; the band tries out a style that reminds me of The Beatles somewhat (but it doesn't quite work). The three remaining songs are smooth ballads that do deliver. This album is great despite its couple of flaws. It is not your typical pop/rock album... and that's more than okay. Sixpence injects their own unique sound into Divine Discontent. I'd recommend it!
