Album Review

This Beautiful Mess is the second release of Sixpence None the Richer. This introspective effort shows a hint of things to come with its poetic lyrics and slightly guitar-heavy melodies. Sixpence digs deep with their songs, refusing to limit themselves to strictly "Christian" concerns, one of their trademarks that has caused some "crossover" backlash. "Within a Room, Somewhere" is one of the strongest songs of the album, with Leigh (Bingham) Nash adding sweet poignancy to Matt Slocum's lyrics. "Melting Alone" keenly expresses the pain of loneliness. This album does have some slow moments, and gets a bit long by the time the last few tracks come around. All in all, this is a good album showcasing their promising future.

Customer Reviews


This is the album that made me a permanent Sixpence None the Richer fan.

It's been rather hard to get these days because of Sixpence's constant label issues. Glad to see it here for future generations to discover. I can't think of a song on here that didn't speak to my soul at one time or another.

Classic Sixpence

I've been listening to this album for years now, and it never gets old. Beautiful lyrics and beautiful music. One of my top five favorite albums ever--don't miss it!

A true work of art

This is by far their best album. How i wish they could get this lineup back together for a reunion concert. Their sound hasn't been the same since.

Initially a trio rounded out by bassist T.J. Behling, the group recorded a demo before signing with R.E.X. Records, a label that previously specialized in Christian metal. Their debut LP, The Fatherless & the Widow, appeared in 1993. With the addition...
