Home, Land and Sea – Trinity Roots

Home, Land and Sea Trinity Roots

Home, Land and Sea

(2005), 8.5/10
With a marked growth in artistic maturity, Trinity Root’s second album showcases more interesting lyrics and a more diverse musical approach. Without ever feeling hurried, the album’s nine songs gradually ebb and flow over an hour, among washes of gentle Fender Rhodes, gently strummed guitars and a fluid rhythm section, all minimally arranged for maximum effect. There are still grooves like ‘Longs I For You’ and ‘Way I Feel’, but they feel stronger when they’re surrounded by more diversity. The opening ‘Aotearoa’ feels like a short pōwhiri for the album, while the concluding title track – a straightforward tribute to New Zealand – has a directness and grandiosity that makes it stand out, providing a climactic conclusion without abandoning the subtleties of the remainder of the record. A few more great individual pieces would elevate this record to even greater heights, but as a mood piece Home, Land and Sea is all but impeccable.
