Product Description

World Waits is in a completely different territory than anything SDRE ever recorded. It consists of mostly slower songs featuring vocals softer than one would expect of Mr. Enigk. He plays guitar (acoustic) on most tracks and uses an assortment of backing rhythm section. The production is quite stellar, with his voice always taking center stage. The occasional organ/piano flourishes blend well with the rest of the music. Highlights include the second track 'Been Here Before' and the second last track 'Dare A Smile', which is a bit more somber than the other tracks.

While it wasn't the whole world waiting patiently for Jeremy Enigk's follow-up to his 1996 solo debut Return of the Frog Queen, a healthy fraction has followed the Seattle artist's work since Sunny Day Real Estate and through the Fire Theft. And most will find the wait for this one well worth it. Enigk's voice is close to perfection, blanketed by resonating melodies and bold arrangements, and although his lyrics can be difficult to decode, they flutter beneath the swirling guitars and calming keyboards in a near fragile state. "I cannot change any man's hate/But I can make known forgiving waters have flown," Enigk pleads in the self-forgiveness song "River to Sea," which rivals the immensely personal "Dare a Smile" and spooky "Damien Dreams" as the album's best tracks. The latter is one of several on World Waits written nearly a decade ago, some intended for another Fire Theft record. That, apparently, remains on the back burner, while Jeremy Enigk's solo career is out front. --Scott Holter
