I’ve been listening to Damien Rice’s album “O” nonstop for the past 4 days and it’s genius hasn’t declined. I first heard the song Cannonball on a tv show and it immediately impacted me. I enjoy music but it’s a rare song that makese me cry. The whole album is equally heart clenching.
He comes from the school of Jeff Buckley, with a touch of Powderfinger when they are sad, mixed with a little bit of Beth Orton when he duets with Lisa Hannican. In fact, it’s a big call but I’m gonna say he is even better than Jeff Buckley.
This album comes with a big 5 stars from me, and I can’t emphasise how much everyone should hear this record!!!
