Sondre Lerche 's first album, Faces Downwas bursting with promise. Two Way Monologue fulfills that promise and then some.
Right from the beginning of the first song "Love You" a brief instrumental that hints at things to come with a sunbursting string arrangement and beautiful chords stacked together like bunches of flowersit is I`m An Agent - Gary Numan - Telekon that Lerche has lost some of the tentativeness that made his debut flawed and has blossomed into a pop craftsman of the highest regard.
The songs on Two Way Monologue are lyrically mature and sophisticated; the sound of the album is full and arranged Teena Marie - Greatest Hits, Lerche effortlessly twists his vocal into falsetto swoops and intimate whispers, and almost every song is worthy of starring on a mix CD made to impress your friends.
Songs like the complex "Track You Down" and "Wet Indonesia - Red Spider - Harapan Yang Hilang point to a new level of sophistication both in the songwriting and the performance. Starting as an acoustic ballad that shifts Чайна Таун - Майя Мигаль - Весь Мир a rollicking pop tune and then into an Astral Weeks-ish ballad and back, it really is an amazing song.
Lyrically it is a touch inscrutable, but that is part of his charm as well. What this record has that his debut didn't are the surprises that pop up at regular intervals and add richness to the arrangements: the honking sax on the wonderful "Two Way Monologue," the Beach Boys vocal harmonies throughout, the bongos on "Days That Are Over," the snaky pedal steel on the achingly beautiful "Stupid Memory.
