Starsailor - Love Is Here download album
Love Is Here (CD, Album, Promo). The four guys have an average age of 20 and singer/composer James Walsh sings with a disarming intensity about love, hope and all the drama of life. The band is influenced by the 1970s, especially by singer-songwriter Tim Buckley (the band name is a reference to one of his albums) and Of Morrisson.

It's less lilting than Coldplay's Parachutes, and frontman James Walsh's aching vocals shape his angularity as a singer/songwriter
In 2002, Love Is Here was certified as platinum in the UK. Upon its release, Love Is Here received critical acclaim.
If you could see the lover in me And we could join our hands together If you could see how good it could be We'll sing these stupid songs forever. Love is here It has never been so clear You can't love what you have not So hold on to what you've got. If you could see the aching in me I'd change my name in case you lost me Trembling down to my knees I've got to leave the world behind me. Can you feel it? Love is here It has never been so clear You can't love what you have not So hold on to what you've got. Submit Corrections. Writer(s): JAMES WALSH, JAMES STELFOX, BARRY WESTHEAD, BENJAMIN BYRNE.

Love Is Here isn't bad, and its prospect for radio play is far more appealing than, say, Train. The four just don't have the depth of their admitted influences- Neil Young, Van Morrison and Tim Buckley (the band is named after one of his albums)- though they have much room for growth. Most of the songs sound too similar: a brooding verse matched by a bombastic chorus, and Walsh's "fall" imagery doesn't seem so much conceptual as it does repetitive. as they did in the . they've got that whiny doleful sensitivity that appeals to the masses. But I don't get the cathartic release they're aiming for. Instead, I just feel like falling.
Since getting this album shortly after it came out, I find myself often listening to it. The foursome from England may turn some away, while others will really enjoy this album. The singer of the group has a definite Jeff Buckley-type influence and the songs themselves are rather standard folk/soft rock type songs. The album may not be entirely unique, but it is definitely a great piece of work with many emotional songs and some memorable songs. Think: Coldplay or Travis, but without much of the uplifting feel. Tracks: 1. Tie Up My Hands 5:46 . Love Is Here may sound like it's full of repetetive material on first listen, but after a few listens, it becomes apparent that each song is great by itself and all help to complete the album. Therefore, I’d give the album about a: . /5.
