After an 8 year hiatus, Damien Rice still has the musical genius to deliver a chilling collection of songs.  My Favourite Faded Fantasy capitalizes on Rice’s ability to write dreamy folk tunes and stunning orchestral builds.  “It Takes A Lot To Know A Man” embraces a long-winded orchestral outro that has the ability to put you in a meditative state.  Following those moments of introspection, the song, “The Greatest Bastard,” grounds us, and we forget that this is still recorded music.


My Favourite Faded Fantasy was release on November 11th.  You can find it on iTunes and stream it on NPR.
