The strength of the albums lies a great deal in singer/guitarist James Walsh distinctive voice. Very few singers have the ability to convey such depth and emotion as Walsh's, which is particularly evident on the more acoustic-based tracks, "She Just Wept" and "Coming Down." While his style is reminiscent of Tim & Jeff Buckley meets Richard Ashcroft, Walsh is a standout because of how he much he constantly sings from the heart. It's quite breathtaking. Also, an equal amount of credit for Starsailor's musical accomplishments has to go to keyboardist Barry Westhead. His contributions lend a great deal of texture to the songs, especially during "Fever" and "Talk Her Down."
If Love Is Here is any indication, Starsailor is sure to be a band that will go far and I look forward to hearing more of their music in the future.
Oasis, Charlatans, Verve, Suede, etc. as well as the new rise of the
introspective, mostly acoustic bands, Travis, Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy,
etc. Starsailor can not only top these 2nd type of bands, but can hold
their own with the Epic bands as well. When I first heard this album I
thought wow these guys are really good, then I got the chance to see them
live and I was completely blown away. Now its one of the only british cds
in heavy rotation of my cd player. Startng with Tie Up My Hands the band
immediately grabs you with the emotion in James Walsh's voice. As you go
on through their single Alcoholic, a fantastic song drenched with emotion,
through Fever and She Just Wept, you will be stunned to know just how young
Mr Walsh really is. Then as if the moody emotional music can't get any
deeper, the band turns it up an unleashes their nod to the epic styles with
Good Souls. As I have heard some friends of mine call it, the best song to
raise a beer and shout along with. Overall, while I remain a huge fan of
Travis, Oasis, Blur, etc. Starsailor has achieved a level above most of
the average Britpop albums that have come out as of late.

So I heard "Way to Fall" on a game called Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The ending was bitter and this song only captivated the emotions at the credits. Read morePublished on August 20, 2012 by Dbiii231
Worthy emotive Britpop may hinge on simplistic sensationalism, SS's debut actually warranted some of that always rabid Brit-press-instantaneous-frothing, a tightly knit collection... Read morePublished on May 18, 2009 by IRate
Interesting sound...interesting vocals...
But I liked it better the first time around...
when it was called "The Verve"!
Well, on the contrary, maybe this band was inspired by Jeff Buckley's father, Tim Buckley, rather than Jeff himself. Read morePublished on September 16, 2006 by Robert A. Borrego
I can't say more than the other people who have already written here praising this CD. What got me interested in this band in the first place is the song Way to Fall. Read morePublished on September 8, 2005 by Underhill
