This Delicate Thing We've Made review

Double contribution into the pop-music collection

Darren Hayes, the ex-frontmen of the world-wide popular Australian duo Savage Garden started his solo carreer in 2001. In spite of some sceptical opinions of this step, his dedut album Spin, released in 2002, was a sound success. After INXS and Kylie Minogue he became the most popular Australian singer. In 2004 his second solo album proved that Darren Hayes came to the pop-music world not accidentally and for a long time. Becides, Hayes managed to demonstrate at last that he is not a "mere Savage Garden ex-member", but a self-sufficient singer-songwriter. Like Sir Elton John, the talented artist appeared to be of unusual sexual orientation. But he disclosed this secret only in 2006 on his official web-site. Following the same example of the celebrited English musician, Hayes married to his long-time boyfriend Richard Cullen the same year in the UK. By that moment Hayes was working over a new creation. On August 20, 2007 Darren Hayes released his two-disk brilliant album This Delicate Thing We've Made.

This Delicate Thing We've Made: work worth of praze

It often happens that artists release double albums with one of the parts being nice and the other one so-so. Or some great songs are interchanged with mediocre compositions and remixes on both parts. This is not the case of Hayes' last achievement. All 25 songs from the album deserve to become hits. One can only ennumerate some, that are at least worth of listening. Who Would Have Ever Thought is a beautiful ballad about love, found after many years of waiting. How to Built a Time Machine is one of the most exciting compositions with powerful lyrics. Hayes sings about going into the past and correcting and the wrong of his life. Step into the Light is one more haunting ballad about the happiness of being in love, so is The Only One. Bombs Up In My Face is an upbeat and very personable composition, in its sharp lyrics Darren Hayes speaks of a certain president. The track is also memorable by the unusually sounding vocals. Words is possibly the best love song that the artist has ever written. Maybe is a very deep track, in which Hayes speculates over the role of possibilities and conincidences in everyone's life.

Darren Hayes: pop-music genius with huge potential

This Delicate Thing We've Made is a real masterpiece. It is not an ordinary pop album, which sounds similarly good from the beginning to the end. It is strongly felt, that Darren Hayes worked hard over every song, because all 25 tracks are unique and amazing both in lyrics and music. This work discloses all the depth of the Australian genious that made the world speak about him. This Delicate Thing We've Made has all kinds of music: upbeat danceable compositions, mid-tempo and slow romantic songs with wonderful poetry and artistic vocals of the singer. The creation has several musical nods to the pop celebrities that inspired Hayes during the songwriting. They are Madonna with her electric Ray of Light (especially in the song Listen All You People), U2 and their unforgettable Achtung Baby and the king of the dancefloor, Prince. Savage Garden was good, nobody disclaims it, but only solo career gave the chance to Darren Hayes to manifest his incredible talent on its full strength.
