Title: Lower Reaches promotion on the net
Post by Cristina on 05/30/13 at 14:05:28
Ladies & Gentlemen,
it seems that great promotional efforts on the release of "Lower Reaches" are being carried out at this time on various net fronts, mainly on new facebook & twitter promo pages:

Also a link to the album pre-order (release date 19.08.13):

So thanks to the new record company, I guess... Just well deserved for our dear Justin!  ;)

"We" think that it's great!!!!  ;)

Really, I think it's a wonderful album, with truly great songs (and lyrics) and a really amazing singing! I find it easy to listen to as a whole though it has some pretty various styles (I even love the super country "On my Conscience"). I love the start with "Falsetto" and the ending with "Little Stars". My favourites keep changing every day (maybe "On a Roll" and "Half of Me" are at the top) but I LOVE each one of them, and it's a nice surprise to listen to the new arrangements of the songs that Justin has been already playing on his solo tours of the last few years.

So go out and get it, if you still haven't!!!!

Oh, liking it, possibly even more than TGW.  Despite all the drum machine and less slicked-up sound.  Had some doubts, till I got the CD and could really hear words & music; online audio wasn't quite cutting it.

Totally love "Little Stars."  Favorites rise & fall; as of press time, "Into a Pearl," "Falsetto" and "Half of Me" are up there.  There isn't a song I don't like.

The wordplay, the tunes, the voice..... [smiley=rolleyes.gif]

It's a great addition to a worthy solo career; I loved the low key introspective nature of What is love for?, felt Great War was too poppy for the lyrical content, so Lower Reaches is a good progression from the qualities of the two previous albums; all the lyrics here are as good as anything Justin's written before, but a couple of the tunes are a bit weak. Hope it's not 3 years for the next solo album  :'(

So until the Dels tour arrives (I still can't believe it!), why don't we start keeping this alive...  ;)
Still my favourite from Lower Reaches, and the video is so simple but so amazing!!!! Half of Me:
