5.0 out of 5 stars David Gray - Melancholy and Fresh, June 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mutineers (Deluxe Version) (Audio CD)
I've loved listening to David Gray for many, many years. Some of his older stuff is my favorite and this takes me back. David gave a recent interview on NPR and said that he took the process through a radical overhaul. He worked backwards from lyrics to music. He said, "I wanted a spiritual renewal" and that is evident in this new album.

Mutineers has a slightly softer edge and even though he is known for his soulful tones, (and this doesn't stray far) he considers it upbeat by his standards. Even his daughters tell him to "jolly it up dad". But it wouldn't be true David Gray if it wasn't a little downbeat.

'Back in the World' is an upbeat track and probably one of my favorites. There are other slower, more melancholy and one or two with that running beat he uses. Having the live discs from London are like having a greatest hits album included and his performance is wonderful (makes me want to seek out tickets for this year's tour!)

This won't disappoint old fans as well as new-to-David listeners.

Hi Joyce, I believe I call that one out in my review as upbeat. "'Back in the World' is an upbeat track and probably one of my favorites. There are other slower, more melancholy and one or two with that running beat he uses." I like that one a lot too.
