Critics' Reviews

amg review
This Beautiful Mess is the second release of Sixpence None the Richer. This introspective effort shows a hint of things to come with its poetic lyrics and slightly guitar-heavy melodies. Sixpence digs deep with their songs, refusing to limit themselves to strictly "Christian" concerns, one of their trademarks that has caused some "crossover" backlash. "Within a Room, Somewhere" is one of the strongest songs of the album, with Leigh (Bingham) Nash adding sweet poignancy to Matt Slocum's lyrics. "Melting Alone" keenly expresses the pain of loneliness. This album does have some slow moments, and gets a bit long by the time the last few tracks come around. All in all, this is a good album showcasing their promising future. ~ Melinda Hill, Rovi
