Sixpence None the Richer
Sixpence None the Richer



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 13 tracks: 50 minutes, 45 seconds
Street Date: 1997


This album is amazing and original. I have never heard another album quite like Sixpence None the Richer. There probably isn't another album out there that's quite as epic and theatrical, yet simplistically beautiful. This album is the album that defines who Sixpence None The Richer really is. If you're only going to buy one of their albums, this is the one to get. And that's not just because it contains hits like "Kiss Me," "There She Goes," "I Can't Catch You," and "Love," but because the whole album works together to paint a beautiful picture of the ups and downs of life.

The self-titled album has a very distinct and powerful sound using violins, piano and guitars to craft rich melodies. Matt Slocum has made a wonderful piece of art here. Even though Sixpence None the Richer shines through both lyrically and musically, it doesn't really do anything complicated; it's just right in every sense with Leigh's beautiful vocals perfectly matched by hauntingly wonderful yet delightfully simple melodies. It's as if Sixpence's career was leading up to this significant climax. I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves great music. You won't regret it.

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


A defining point in Sixpence None The Richer's amazing career. Although they'd been making music for years before this album's eventual release (following regretful label hassles), this record put them on the map. Artistic, melancholy, and lovely, this one's memorable indeed. - 1/16/07, John DiBiase
