    Album of the Week: The Henry Girls - Louder The Words

     

    This weeks album of the week is Henry Girls Louder Then Words and here is what MusicandEverything.com had to say....

    The Henry Girls have been around for quite some time despite the recent peak in interest, possibly spawned by the increased popularity in folk music. Names after their grandfather, the Donegal sisters have been performing together for more than a decade, with their first release “Between Us” gracing the Irish music scene in 2002.

    This month sees the release of their 5th album ‘Louder Than Words’ , a warm, ten track album that comes across polished and professional, without succumbing to an overly commercial sound.

    On the whole, this is a consistently strong album with a few tracks that stand just a little further out than the others. Reason To Believe is particularly notable; a soothingly harmonic track in which the sisters vocals intertwine beautifully, it is a signature of their light and airy sound.

    The harmonies are what really sell this album. There is something wonderfully perfect when siblings sing together and this is especially true in the case of the Henry Girls. The Light in The Window and Here Beside Me are rendered magical by the heart wrenching harmonies; the former instilling some fantastic traditional Irish musicianship in the form of a fiddle and bodhrán.

    This is an exquisite album with highs and lows in terms of tempo, mood and vocals throughout. It is compelling and moving; masterful in the sense that it truly draws the listener in to the atmosphere of each song. If you have not yet heard The Henry Girls music, this album would be a great place to start
