The Blower's Daughter. Older Chests. Magnificently packaged in a CD-sized hardcover book filled with personal artwork, lyrics, and photos, Damien Rice 's debut full-length, O , is nothing less than a work of genius, a perfect cross between Ryan Adams and David Gray and a true contender for one of the best albums of The production is reminiscent of Songs of Leonard Cohen -- simple guitars, vocals, and then those swelling strings, all of which sound like they were recorded right in the same room.
For example, on "Delicate" the strings lift the spare folk song to the heavens at just the moment that makes the song soar -- Meltzer might call it the "folk tongue" or maybe even the "epic tongue. The gentle "Cannonball," the bright strumming and surreal feedback on "Amie," the distant piano and oceanic harmonies not to mention drowning, backwards vocals on the duet, "Cold Water" -- the entire record makes the empty highway less lonely, the sunshine a little warmer, and life a little more poetic.
Then there's the actual opera singer doing backup vocal duties on "Eskimo" -- a song of redemption that is Syd Barrett , is Skip Spence , is Grandaddy and is Mercury Rev and everything that implies.
