David Gray – White Ladder

David Gray
Artist: David Gray
Title: White Ladder
Label: ATO
Rating: 8/10

David Gray’s voice is balm: soothing, sophisticated, and wonderfully familiar. It’s this voice that echoes trust and understanding. It keeps you listening even when you think nothing is left to hear.

Gray has it in him to play for the masses, “Please Forgive Me”, or just singing alone to us, “My Oh My”. “We’re Not Right” speaks tenderly to the soul while appealing to the mind. Gray thinks nothing of changing lives through song, either yours or his own. It doesn’t matter, just as long as you let it move you. “Nightblindness” drifts off to sleepwalking across puffy clouds rolling into a “Silver Lining”.

David Gray brings back the long lost art of songwriting, where words mixed with a great melody could really move you. There is no hot production, just a man, his guitar, a loop, and a reason.
