Album Review

Having performed with Corinne Bailey Rae on her European tour, Jack Savoretti released his debut album Between the Minds. From a young man who claimed he wrote poetry as a child and never even picked up a guitar until he was 16 years old, and having found that more people listened to him when he sang than if he recited poetry, it was a remarkably assured debut. 2007, however, was possibly the wrong time to release an album of acoustic ballads sung with a gruff voice — almost Leonard Cohen-ish in quality but in a higher register — for there were already a plethora of singer/songwriters in this genre, including Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne, and Ben Harper, not to mention the kings of 2000s acoustic songwriting David Gray and James Blunt producing very similar albums. Consequently, Between the Minds got a little lost in the crowd, peaking at number 70 in the charts for just one week. After four songs, all acoustic ballads with a simple guitar picking backing, the track "Without" came along and introduced strings, followed by "Black Rain," which actually sped up the pace a little, but then it was back to one man and his guitar for "Apologies" and "Soldier's Eyes," a poignant antiwar tale, and "Chemical Courage."

Customer Reviews

Sons of Anarchy

Last three minutes of every episode they always deliver somebody awesome. Instantly downloaded Soldiers eyes.

Simply AMAZING! Brilliant talent here!

There have been a lot of "almost greats" performing this kind of music for a long time, like Marc Broussard, Rocky Votolato, Ray Montagne, Ben Folds, Damien Rice... But the quality of this album surpasses them all. Soothing yet stirring, beautiful voice, impressive lyrics, amazing acoustics, just can't get enough!!!

Incredible

Finally someone who brings to us incredible lyrics that are moving and wonderous. The music is sensational and spans emotions from love to fear to loss to sense of spirit to regret to friendship. It's wonderful when music can transfer you to a different place and seem like the song was written from your own feelings. His follow up album can get the same accolades.

A minor hit on the U.K.'s premier MOR station, BBC Radio 2, it was enough to attract the attention of Corinne Bailey Rae, who asked Savoretti to join her on her European tour that year.
