Album Review

Three years is a long time to wait between albums for a singer/songwriter, especially when you're coming off the back of a very successful debut in 2004 and wait until 2007 for the follow-up, but that's exactly what Lucie Silvas did with her second album, The Same Side. People quickly forget, or others come along to fill the void, and that is what appeared to have happened to her. Her debut album, Breathe In, just missed the Top Ten, but where were those buyers when The Same Side came along? If anything, The Same Side is a progression from the sound of Breathe In; it has a fuller, richer feel with strings and orchestration rather than relying on a simple piano melody line. The trouble is the songs themselves, which don't stand out as being anything special. Silvas has written them with feeling, from experience, but there's nothing that grabs the average listener. The tracks "Place to Hide," "Right Here," and "Counting," however, revert to minimalist piano tinkling and showcase her voice better than the full orchestral tracks. The album hit the charts at number 62 and remained there for just one week. She did save the best til last, as the final track, "Stolen," was another of her simpler songs with an occasional piano chord backing quite a beautiful song. [A U.K. version was also released.]

Customer Reviews

The Carlsberg of Singer Songwriters!

Lucie Silvas is without doubt a wonderful singer/songwriter, possibly the best in the UK today. Whilst she clearly enjoys the success of two albums and several singles, I don't think she's rewarded with the level of success she deserves, maybe Lucie needs to think hard about the people around her if she wants achieve her best. Whoever's responsible for her marketing has done a pretty poor job. With regards to this album, its good. From a creative point of view its very good, from a commercial point of view it lacks a little direction.

Who wrote that rubbish at the top of the page?

The only thing I agree with in that nonsense written at the top of the page is that yes this album is a progression from Breathe in, Maybe not as much of a chart friendly album, and by that I mean catchy pop tunes left right and centre. However if you are a fan of Lucie and artists like her this album is great and you will be glad you bought it. Also just to say, there will always be space for Lucie Silvas in the music industry no matter how many years she takes between albums. She is a brilliantly talented songwriter, singer and musician. Compare her to the amount of God awful songs and wannabe's that have the cheek to call themselves artists and are currently filling up the charts with their mind numbing nonsense I'd say theres not only space for her but a need for her!


Had this album years ago and just never tire of it.Superb.....just wish there was another Lucie album to download that is new material.My favourite tracks The Same side and Something about you.x
