Reviewed by Mike Rimmer

Singer Trish Pye and multi-instrumentalist Geoff Smith finally release an album of enticing jazzy songs after much was promised on their debut EP I reviewed some time back. Grown up music with distinct jazziness is the best way to describe this and it's also designed to be taken beyond the walls of the Church. Devoid of the usual Christian lyrical cliches Pye's lyrics are poetic and intriguing with a dash of humour which is bound to connect with a wider audience. It's the immediacy of the fun songs like the upbeat "Old Man Shuffle" and Trish's tender tribute to the addictive nature of "Chocolate" that immediately grab attention. However there is something deeper that is captured here which is worth investigating where issues of life and faith are intermingled on songs like "Casting Stones" and the bluesier title tune. The synergy between singer and instrumentalist makes this a delight with Trish's beautiful bluesy, jazzy voice meeting its match in Geoff's subtle accomplished accompaniment. The result makes Trace Elements' debut album the perfect thing if your soul is weary with plastic music.
