#25 – Damien Rice – “9 Crimes” – (2006)

Damien Rice can write a haunting effing song. This song definitely hits that mark and so did his previous album. The music is minimalistic, for the most part, and the lyrics start off very soft and remain relatively soft – but they definitely build as the song goes on. The music actually sounds orchestral – which goes a long way to making this a beautiful song.
