Ray Lamontagne scores again. I love this album even more than his first album, of which I am a big fan. If you loved his debut, this is even better. If you have never heard him before, Till the Sun Turns Black is an excellent place to start. Ray Lamontagne continues with his soulful voice and independent music and, in my opinion, reaches even higher in his sophomore attempt. The album manages to be different enough from the first that it is like discovering Lamontagne for the first time, yet it is at the same time like hanging out with an old friend. I think Ray Lamontagne is an artist that will appeal to men and women equally, both romantic and masculine. The sound quality of the album is excellent - like being right next to him as he sings only to you. Ray LaMontagne is so original, that even if you have heard many albums int he same genre, this is like a breath of fresh air, a new take on the old style. There are enough tracks on the record to make it worth buying, becuase you are bound to love several, if not all. of them. Try these tracks and tell me you don't love it: "Be Here Now, ""Empty, " and "You Can Bring me Flowers".
