Draw The Line is the warm, fresh, organic sound of David Gray in a new, revitalized light. He had all the success in the world, and more, but he was hungry for more – not more success, but more feeling. More heart. More soul. More songs. More life. The formula had become a stale and worn one. Songs like "Nemesis," "First Chance" and the title song reflect Gray

Overview

Draw The Line is the warm, fresh, organic sound of David Gray in a new, revitalized light. He had all the success in the world, and more, but he was hungry for more – not more success, but more feeling. More heart. More soul. More songs. More life. The formula had become a stale and worn one. Songs like "Nemesis," "First Chance" and the title song reflect Gray's more thoughtful state of mind.

I am a David Gray fan, and this CD is as good or better than any of them. Very unique poetic images and great musicality. The songs with additional vocals by Annie Lenox and Jolie Holland were terrific.

Rarely do we have the pleasure to listen to an artist of this caliber. David Gray has paid his dues and learned his craft, he is now amongst the very best of his class, and overflows its parameters. The music is flawless, the lyrics thoughtful and occasionally just plain fun. His originality and the spirit of his performance is of the finest variety one can purchase from contemporary performers. His vocals are driven, clear and persuasive. This is one of the finest albums out there right now. David has arrived in the big time!

Draw the Line is filled with beautifully arranged, thought-provoking songs. David Gray is the perfect artist to listen to if you're in a low-key, contemplative mood. His melodic, flowing compositions are also great background music for when you're working or getting together with friends. I can't stop listening! The bonus live album is great, it has most of Gray's hit songs with the noticeable exceptions of "Caroline" and "This Years Love." The packaging is more like an elegant book of lyrics than a CD case, very nicely produced. If you're a long-time fan or new to David Gray's music this is a must own album.

Each and every song is anticipated, and well-placed. It seems I've had this album for about a year, as much as I have listened to it already (it's only been a little over a month). Then again, all of Gray's albums are that way. He has a timeless quality to his songs, and yet his music has continually developed and evolved in richness and warmth, especially as felt on his last two albums, Life in Slow Motion and Draw The Line (though not to detract at all from the brilliance of his albums previous to those). I think that him having his own full-blown recording studio and an growing arsenal of instruments has something to do with this. He is such a thoughtful musician in his choice of instruments and the sounds he and his band conjure from them. His songwriting is, as it always has been, top-notch and among the best out there. He seems to genuinely love his music, as displayed on each carefully-crafted album and when you see him perform live. Concerts don't get much better. I'm glad I live in the time of David Gray's music.
