delicate, volcano, blowers daughter

Damien Rice showcases a mastery of the simplicity on this album. Most songs feature Damien, his guitar, a brush drum kit, and an upright bass. String sections float overtop here and there, and vocalist Lisa Hannigan joins in for a few songs. The instrumental ability of Damien and his studio musicians is superb, and it makes perfect background music for Damien to spin his beautiful stories.

 

His songs transpose emotion into a sonic experience that pulls you in. You find yourself both sympathizing and empathizing with the feelings and experiences of Rice and the personas he creates.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like Ben Howard or Pearl Jam.
