Just finished watching a web-cast of Damien Rice and his band perform songs off his new album, 9. While it was a first listen, it sounded solid and I look forward to getting into the whole work. It has been a bit of a wait since his last album, which was a splendid effort. His lyrics, voice, and band’s ability all get high marks. If you have any inkling of an interest in folk rock, consider getting interested in Rice.
9 is released in North America today.
