Album Review

After toiling in relative obscurity in the Christian pop ghetto for several years, Sixpence None the Richer suddenly exploded on to the pop charts in 1999 on the strength of "Kiss Me," an utterly irresistible slice of swoony guitar pop that, once heard, is impossible to shake loose from the brain and could well turn out to be this generation's "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." The rest of the album may not be quite as memorable, but that's not to say that "Kiss Me" is the only thing worth hearing. "Anything," with its fruity chord progression and string sweetening, is almost Beatlesque; "The Lines of My Earth" draws subtly on country influences. Then there's the Pablo Neruda setting. There are moments when the wispiness of Leigh Nash's voice isn't adequately offset by sturdier accompaniment, but overall this is a very winning album. Those who are offended by religious messages in their pop music don't need to worry — there are a few here, but they're pretty subtle.

Customer Reviews

I am not sure about the review but......

Sixpence is a tremendous group who suffered from the successful hit "Kiss Me." People got sick of the song and dismissed them as a one-hit wonder. Even that song though, gets short shrift. It has a very deep message....it is not about human kissing. As always, their best songs are not on the greatest hits album. Sixpence is a little too deep, both musically and lyrically for kids. Listen closer. Listen to other albums. No they are not the Beatles, but I think even they would be offended by such a comparison. They have also weathered great storms, from their fans accusing them of selling out or from struggling with their labels. Give them another listen.

Not the best

Although we all probably only know 2 or 3 songs from this band, the album is great to listen to when you're looking for something to do.

What?

I don't think this is the right album review. Hello, anyone there?
