Sixpence None the Richer - "Lost in Transition"

As an album title, Lost in Transition seems apt. For Sixpence None the Richer, it's a reminder of the struggles and uncertainty the band endured over the past few years, before ultimately finding their way again. Since forming in 1993, the Nashville-based band has released four albums, scored several hit singles (''Kiss Me,'' ''There She Goes,'' ''Don't Dream It's Over'' and ''Breathe Your Name''), appeared on seemingly a million soundtracks, landed a platinum record and even earned a few Grammy nominations. But the band amicably parted ways in 2004, shortly after releasing their last full-length record, Divine Discontent. The ''transition'' had begun. After a few outside ventures and solo albums, the band reunited five years ago. But putting together a new, original full-length record was never necessarily in the cards. For one, the band had to wade through various label and business issues; fortunately, they were able to find a new found musical freedom by partnering with the independent music distributor The Orchard. Transition also features a stripped down sound; the end result is a gorgeous mix of pop hooks, piano, acoustic guitars, a bit of country and a new found and beautiful simplicity to the songs.
