David Gray – New Day At Midnight

28 10 2010

Listened: Thursday October 7

New Day at Midnight was David Gray’s followup to White Ladder. I’m sure it let a bunch of people down who wanted another White Ladder. It’s not that. The listener can almost absorb the fact that he’s in a much different place in his life with this album. There won’t be another White Ladder because he’s not that guy anymore.

I love his songs because they’re emotionally resonant songs sung beautifully. I don’t really know what’s going on in many of the songs, but I can feel it anyway. The stresses on the words seem to fall in the right place, even if I can’t intellectually figure out why.
