It's killing me but I am NOT going to listen to it until I can do it by myself. I refuse to have any family members express their opinion till I've sat quietly by myself and enjoyed every second of bliss

Overall comments... HERE BE TWINKLY! I love the general vibe of the songs... the mellowness and the focus on guitar, and the airy sound... yes, that is how I like my music produced, thank you very much. ;D
This is only a small part of Damien's 'sound' I guess... we know they left some of the rockier stuff off there, but I think there's enough of a range within what was put on to give it depth and make the individual tracks stand out. If that makes any sense to anyone else.
I wasn't sure about the track order at first, but having listened to it, it really works! Especially having Cold Cold Heart as the last track - I wanted Not Just For The Weekend at the end, but the way it is works better than what I was thinking of.
And... I think there are enough high notes on there to keep a stupid grin on everybody's face for weeks. ;D
I'm only halfway through and I don't know how much sense you'll get out of me for a while - I'm so as I listen for the first time. LOVING it so far and it's just magic to hear all this beautiful new music. Now I see exactly why I nearly blew a fuse for Beautiful the other night ahhhhhhhhhh loving it.......
So far I've flatlined /\/\/\_________________ a few times, it's all been so so beautiful...
OMG just heard those changes in Blew it All Away - God knows how I'm going to choose a favourite on this album....
I've got it, I've got it. Sanity was playing it this morning when I bought it.
OMG, Where We Land is absolutely exquisite. I knew it was going to be great but it has exceeded all of my expectations. I'm in teh coma. I just love All I Want Is You. Can you just imagine singing along to this at the concerts? In fact every song on the album is incredible including Danny Boy! I can't comment on each track individually at the moment, I'm still drinking them all in. ;D
I love how the lyrics are printed on the inside cover and it's wonderful to see "Written by Damien Leith" against nine of the tracks. And DLO and the Damienites received a big thank you from Damien.
Congratulations and well done Damien on a brilliant album.
