Soulsavers - Broken (2009) Retail CD
More splendidly gloomy stuff from Messrs Machin and Glover
and their estimable collaborators.
Dark, funereal and strangely uplifting on occasion, 'Broken' is
music for a night in with a good bottle of red wine for company
( a Romanee-Conti or Richebourg would do nicely ).
Ideally the wind will be lashing the rain
mercilessly against your windowpanes.
Opening track 'The Seventh Proof' is a beautifully
constructed instrumental overture.
The tolling bell is an inspired little detail.
The reflective prelude is swept away by the violently raucous
mayhem of 'Death Bells', a composition redolentmore… of Nick Cave
in one of his big, bad evangelical preacher moments.
You can almost smell the fire and brimstone !
Mr Lanegan, though clearly leader of the pack, is not alone
in providing some marvellous moments within the 13 tracks
comprising this largely gloomy (in a good way) collection.
Red Ghost's duet with him on 'Rolling Sky' is a richly layered tour de force.
Richard Hawley's contribution to 'Shadows Fall' also deserves a special mention.
There is an almost cinematic quality to many of the songs.
Songs for sinners and saviours and imaginary westerns.
The fiercely emotional intensity of 'You Will Miss Me When I Burn' is almost
unbearable. "When you have no-one no-one can hurt you" - Ouch indeed !
'Praying Ground' has garnered some criticism for Ms Ghost's performance. I loved it.
So too her rendition of final track 'By My Side',
a very moving conclusion to a very fine album.
Almost certainly a strong contender for inclusion in my top ten albums of 2009.
