Bouncing back from the adventurous, but somewhat uneven, Silence is Easy
, which involved chaotic recordings sessions with mercurial producer Phil Spector (shortly before his arrest on suspicion of murder), Starsailor opted for a more muscular, straight-ahead sound for On The Outside
. While the amped-up, guitar-heavy approach renews previous comparisons to Coldplay, the Lancashire, England-based group, fronted by emotive frontman James Walsh, still maintains its own voice on strong tracks such as the soaring "In the Crossfire" and the thoughtful, Hammond-laden "This Time."
The tracklisting for the bonus DVD is as follows:
Making of On the Outside (Short Film), Counterfeit Life (Live LA performance), In My Blood (Live At Somerset House), Tie Up My Hands (Live At Somerset House), Silence is Easy (Live At Somerset House), In the Crossfire (Video) and the 35-minute DVD also features a Photo Gallery.
Starsailor will be touring during the Fall of 06 as a guest of James Blunt. For more details click here.
