It took five years for Nashville-based Sixpence None the Richer to shake free from the legal wranglings surrounding previous label Squint's bankruptcy, and despite the ever-angelic demeanor of lead Leigh Nash's delicate voice, Divine Discontent can't help but contain more than its share of melancholy moments. It's actually refreshing to hear the sextet reaching beyond the sunny strains of signature hit "Kiss Me" in thoughtful cuts like the orchestral "Tension Is a Passing Note" and strummy "Down and out of Time." Of course, there's also the expected assortment of uptempo jangly jewels, foremost is rapturous first single "Breathe Your Name" and dreamily layered "Tonight." Fans of Sixpence will count their blessings—there's new maturity and depth here, but enough familiarity intact to stamp the set with Nash's infectious individuality.—CT
