This is also the first album to feature new band members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams. The Weight of Your Love Q&A.
Produced by Jacquire King in Nashville, the album has a distinctly organic feel, as if it were recorded in an old theater. Adding to this tactile, less electronic sound is the choice to frame several of the songs in judicious swaths of string orchestration. The result works especially well on the album's handful of ballads, including "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "Honesty," helping them achieve a deeply moving, cinematic quality

I'm a man Holding the weight of love But without it my strength just isn't enough So strike down on me, on me. Everyday I pray I'm the first to go Without you I would be lost And I promised myself I wouldn't sing about death I know I'm getting boring. For a moment I felt the weight of your love It was lightning, it was lightning Strike down on me. Submit Corrections. Writer(s): ed lay, elliott williams, justin lockey, russell leetch, tom smith.
When their post-punk sound is executed with punch, as on foreboding album opener The Weight, or the big, whirling U2-style-chorused A Ton Of Love, it has the clout to match early singles such as Munich – but the attempts to branch out don’t really fare so well
