Album Review

The veteran band Spirit of the West (this is their sixth release) goes for more of a rock edge with Faithlift. It's an evolution not unlike fellow Canadians Blue Rodeo. The act still injects a healthy does of Celtic influences, though, on songs like the sprightly "Sadness Grows" or the lazy "Sincerely Yours." Lead singer John Mann's lyrics are amusing, insightful and, yet, down to earth. He's adept at writing dark moody pieces like "Bone of Contention" or "Mum's the Word." The latter is a somewhat jarring track, featuring the clever, heartbreaking lyrical twist on the song's title and a tortured guitar solo from Hugh McMillan. Mann also shines on lighter fare like the sweetly romantic "And If Venice Is Sinking" with the music building to a joyous, horn-tinged stomp and a lovely singalong on the final chorus. Literate and melodic, Faithlift is worth a listen for listeners who appreciate a healthy dose of substance but want some pop-sense style, as well.
