cd the half life walking out to the wall
The third album sees the Half Life moving further into new territory. Whilst the 90s guitar rock of "The Waiting Room" can still be heard in "It's Always Going to be this Way" and "I Want You Too", the longer tracks, such as "Sparks and Hearts" and "Playing at Patience" see other influences, such as 70s prog, emerge. Amongst the highlights is "To the Wall", plaintive sax, crashing waves of cymbals, keyboards and acoustic guitars. The final song, "Almost Here" fuses a folky English sound with the exoticism of Greek bouzoukis?
