by Sixpence None The Richer, pop (1997)
Squint, ASIN B000006FAV
I'm told that if I'm a fan of 10,000 Maniacs, I should get a hold of a Sixpence None The Richer CD. Since I love the Maniacs, I can't help but to buy this, SNTR's debut now re-released to coincide with the success of songs Kiss Me and There She Goes.
Well, I'm going to sound really unsophisticated but I think the two pure pop exuberances of Kiss Me and There She Goes are the best thing in this CD.
SNTR's band of Christian folk has wonderful lyrics, but gosh, they all sound the same. Jangly guitars, silent drums, and Leigh Nash warbling. After three songs my eyes start to cross. I can't distinguish any melody, any chorus, and on some songs Leigh Nash sounds as if she's either suffering from clogged nose or she's singing with her head under water.
I can't be having a bad day. I've been trying to listen to this Grammy-nominated CD for three months now and still can't fail to get sleepy somewhere around Track 6. Oh well.
