    Amazing, Incredible, Phenomenal, Mind Blowing!

    Magnificent and close to genius, this album evokes every emotion possible. By far the best album in years. Jimmy Gnecco is the most talented singer in the music today and his performance is a sonic marvel. This by far the best Ours record to date and truly an unforgettable performance by Jimmy and co.

    You Won't Be Able To Listen To Music the Same After Listening to This Record

    I've been a fan of Ours for 7 years and have eagerly awaited the release of Mercy for 6 of them, since they first started to work on it and play new songs in 2002. This CD is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, since receiving my copy I have listened to this album over two dozen times. I have listened to the song Mercy over 200 times itself. Despite the band releasing some tracks on their myspace through out the years, the cd from start to finish is an experience that you really need to hear for yourself to fully enjoy. I cannot say how much this CD has been worth the wait. Every second of these 6 years was worth it because MERCY is truly a masterpiece and now that it is finally released in the way Jimmy Gnecco and the rest of the band want it to be heard, it is not disappointing in the slightest bit. This is a CD that makes you love music, that makes you appreciated a talented vocalist, songwriter and musician. The lyrics, the packaging, all so emotional and beautiful. I've been near near tears listening to this music the first time and several times since my first listen, track 1 to 12 is pure genius. It's a BEAUTIFUL CD, that's all I can say, I am so speechless right now and it's a magical, beautiful thing, a great feeling to know that my favorite band, my favorite group of musicians were able to take songs that sound great live and make it a new experience on record, even to those who have heard these songs so many times live over the years. The band has finally shaped its sound into a cohesive, unique group that is different than any other Ours cd, let a lone any other band. This was my attempt to put my feelings into words and I don't think I can do the CD justice... Mercy is overwhelming, and just brilliant. I've heard these songs develop live throughout the years and trust me, this band is brilliant live, but to hear them on record thinking it was impossible to beat their live performance, I was truly blown away and you will be too. The guitar riffs compliment the vocals, each song has an introduction and an outro that creatively add to the substance of each song. The lyrics are heart wrenching at times, melancholy and hopeful and overall well written. Murder features a discrete use of a trumpet that compliments the instrumentals, and acoustic guitars, keyboards and orchestration are heard to add many layers to each song that unravel into an epic listening experience. Mercy is a timeless record.
