Editorial Reviews

Product Description

As an album title, Lost in Transition seems apt. For Sixpence None the Richer, it's a reminder of the struggles and uncertainty the band endured over the past few years, before ultimately finding their way again. Since forming in 1993, the Nashville-based band has released four albums, scored several hit singles (''Kiss Me,'' ''There She Goes,'' ''Don t Dream It's Over'' and ''Breathe Your Name''), appeared on seemingly a million soundtracks, landed a platinum record and even earned a few Grammy nominations. But the band amicably parted ways in 2004, shortly after releasing their last full-length record, Divine Discontent. The ''transition'' had begun. After a few outside ventures and solo albums, the band reunited five years ago. But putting together a new, original full-length record was never necessarily in the cards. For one, the band had to wade through various label and business issues; fortunately, they were able to find a new found musical freedom by partnering with the independent music distributor The Orchard. Transition also features a stripped down sound; the end result is a gorgeous mix of pop hooks, piano, acoustic guitars, a bit of country and a new found and beautiful simplicity to the songs.


Sixpence None The Richer have come SO far from their 'She's All That' soundtrack days, and the band sounds JUST as sweet and catchy as they did back in the day!

Sixpence is back with all that made them a great band before, and more life experience to tack on.

Sixpence None the Richer is back, and their return is sure to be welcomed by many of their old fans. This album marks Sixpence None the Richer's first full-length album of original tunes in nearly a decade after another wave of label troubles pushed back its earlier release date. After all of the changes the band went through to get to where they are now, the title of the album, "Lost in Transition", certainly seems appropriate.

The album starts off strong with "My Dear Machine", a horn-driven rocker with lyrics that seem to be a metaphor for the band's attempts to make music together again. The album then flows through several somber, melancholy tunes before "Should Not Be This Hard" shakes things up in the middle of the album. The rest of the album rolls along with more ups than downs, ending on a hopeful note with "Be OK". (The MP3 download features a bonus track "I Do".)

Fans of the group's 90s hits such as "Kiss Me" and "There She Goes" may be disappointed that nothing on this album quite captures the radio-friendly luster the band managed back then. However, fans of the band's sophomore effort "This Beautiful Mess" will find sparser arrangements reminiscent of when Tess Wiley was part of the group, and fans of their 2002 work on "Divine Discontent" should find plenty to appreciate in the arrangements and songwriting. Some of the songs on the album also aren't entirely new. Those that picked up a copy of the digital-only EP "My Dear Machine" will recognize three of the songs, and those who follow the band online will recognize "Failure" and "Safety Line" as tracks the band shared with fans last year after the album's release got pushed back yet again.

Here on this album is a band familiar yet different.

Remember the winsomeness of "Kiss me?" Well, Leigh Nash's voice is as fresh and sweet as ever--but real fans of Sixpence know that Kiss Me was never really what their sound was about, or at least all that their sound was about. They had a knack for surprisingly complex and deep guitar-work, a solid whole band approach to musicianship, and a commitment to real song-craft that made much of their output so much better than merely pop. Divine Discontent was a great album, and I was saddened to hear that they had a lot of label issues that kept music from flowing from these guys. I'm really pleased to say that fan of SNTR are going to be very happy that the maturity has continued, and makes this an exceedingly strong album. Yes, there are songs here that could be radio hits--the opener, "My Dear Machine" in particular has an infectious horn section, and "Should not be this Hard" is quite peppy--but this doesn't feel like an album made by a band that is chasing a hit, but rather a band chasing a good album, a cohesive whole. That makes me very happy indeed, and I am glad to welcome Sixpence back with this fantastic new album. Check it out.

Format: Audio CD
Sixpence None The Richer's new CD opens with the rocking "My Dear Machine" with fuzzy (and excellent) guitars and triumphant horns, but don't let that fool you, the rest of the album is mellow; sweet but mellow.

"Lost In Transition" is their first studio album proper since 2002's "Divine Discontent" (there was 2008's Christmas album "The Dawn Of Grace") and much of it is a natural progression from that effort. "Radio" is a lovely chugging chiming piece with Leigh Nash's sounding as soft and charming as ever. It reminds me of "Blue" from Leigh's solo debut but more upbeat.

Other highlights are the groovy ballad "Give It Back" which touches on doubt in one's faith ("You're everywhere in every time, and yet you're always hard to find"), the emotive ballad "Safety Line", the enchanting slowly waltzing "When You Call Me", the bouncy Country-tinged pair of "Should Not Be This hard" (with ghostly harmonies) and "Go Your Way" (with strummed guitar and harmonizing accompanying Nash's vocals), the haunting ballad "Stand My Ground", the affecting "Sooner Than later" (inspired by Nash's recently deceased father - "When it's my turn to fall, you'll catch me sooner or later"), and the sunny jangly closer "Be OK".

It's a more mature and wiser pair of Nash and Matt Slocum here and it shows. Beautiful, heartfelt, and well worth the wait.

"Lost in Transition" is the first real Sixpence None the Richers album since 2002s "Divine Discontent". Problems with their record label made in 2004 key members, songwriter and guitarist Matt Slocum and singer Leigh Nash temporarily disband the group.

Leigh Nash released in 2006, her neglected masterpiece "Blue on Blue", which had song contributions from Matt Slocum, but also showed Nash herself as a very competent songwriter. This album can only be recommended in the warmest, and it measures the absolute with the best of Sixpence None the Richer; most of the songs actually sound like Sixpence recordings.

Fortunately Slocum and Nash reformed SPNTR in 2008. An excellent download-only EP, "My Dear Machine" was released and soon after came a Christmas album "The Dawn of Grace" with among other great songs included a fine version of Joni Mitchell's "River".

New problems and delays unfortunately turned up again and the release a new album, originally intended to be called "Strange Conversations", was constantly postponed. Now finally the songs are out now released as "Lost in Transition"; a title that makes good sense.

Since the release of "My Dear Machine" I have eagerly awaited this release, which is now thankfully turns out to be worth waiting for. They have wisely chosen to include the song "My Dear Machine" in the original 2008 version. This is simply a great song. To my ears, the song has everything a hit needs, that is one with lasting qualities. A catchy melody, great riffs (horns), intelligent lyrics which leave room for interpretation and a perfect vocal performance by Leigh Nash. Should be a hit. A classic for the group.

Two other songs from the 2008 EP are found here in new recordings.
