Play 90 second soundbite of 'Dog Days' @ 'CD quality'
The techniques used, melding old with new, to record this excellent album result in a warm and rich sounding work that allows just enough 'live' reality into the equation making this a truly believable and totally reproducible album. Speace delivers with awesome presence and yet retains a wholesome, ordinariness that sounds like she could be singing to you and you alone. Supported by her trusty long-serving band, The Tearjerks, Speace nails this beautifully - there's emotions running rampant through this brilliant album and cleverly those emotions are made to feel as personal to the listener as they clearly are to the musician.
Speace's ability to reach deep into your heart with her beautiful songs is quite amazing; if the haunting music doesn't get to yer the lyrics certainly will - this is breathtaking stuff!! And, song quality and musical proficiency apart, 'The Killer In Me' has been recorded, mixed and produced with real feeling and understanding; listen to the brutal honesty and haunting qualities of the magnificent 'Haven't Learned A Thing' followed by the beautifully controlled and eerily punctuative backdrop of the brilliant 'Storm Warning', then find the earhty grit in the disturbing and poignantly harsh 'Dirty Little Secret' - and so it goes on, track after track, song after song.....absolute perfection!!
'The Killer In Me' by Amy Speace is a truly brilliant piece of work; thirteen glorious tracks of modernistic folkish nu-country with softly-rockin' nuances and a wonderfully commercial under-belly. Absolutely sensational stuff this - it just doesn't get much better than 'The Killer In Me' by the amazing Amy Speace! Fanbloodytastic!!
