After three albums fronting alt rock band Ours, Jimmy Gnecco's first solo album is arguably the most personal and affecting work of his career. Self-produced and titled 'The Heart,' it's a watershed work which sees Jimmy drop his guard and raise the bar. We all have to reckon with loss and the events that have shaped us sooner or later, and this record is Gnecco's compelling attempt to do just that. Though Jimmy plays every instrument on the album, it's his evocative, soulful voice that takes centre stage, creating 15 songs with a potent mix of intimacy, integrity and beautiful melancholy.

If you passively listen to his music, you're likely to be underwhelmed.
Listen to the whole album, on repeat, a few times. I like listening to it in my car, by myself.
He produces beautifully cathartic music.
In this acoustic strip down, it's his greatest instrument, his voice, that becomes the carrier for all the emotion.
OURS was a collaborative effort, with a changing lineup, with many hands producing the final work, led by his vision.
This time, it was a self contained work, deeply personal, and it shows.
There are no elaborate metaphors, no flowery poetry, in the songs he presents here.
It is the honest and true emotion he can convey with his voice that makes his simple lyrics shine.
'it wasnt about inviting anyone in'
if you have 12 minutes to spare, his video on the album encapsulates a lot of detail on the creation of his album.
(plus, his half-grins are the essence of adorable)
Jimmy Gnecco is talented and gifted in the vocal cord gymnastics. This album sounds very personal, dark, deep,
and yet positive. I can't say enough about his voice. See for yourself on many of his songs, especially, the song
"The Heart". "Light on the Grave" is sentimental and beautiful. I'm now awaiting the Heart:X Edition.
I received this CD in the mail within 2 days of ordering, quickly and in a neatly packed shipping envelope.
Thank you :)
