Album cover.

Azure Ray is the debut self-titled studio album of Azure Ray released on 2001-01-16 and produced by Eric Bachmann and Brian Causey. The album's music is primarily indie dream pop.

Several songs from the album were used in television shows and films starting even before the album was released and continued for years after, including Felicity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cold Case, Winter Passing, and The Devil Wears Prada.

Personal

I learned about the band because my friend Kimberly, whom I met at a Rilo Kiley concert, told me about another band from the same published called Azure Ray. I downloaded a couple of their songs, all of which came from this album, enjoyed them, and later bought the album. Due to it's ethereal sound and heavy lyrics, I only listen to the music when I'm in the mood for it, but, when I am in that mood, I appreciate the music especially. This is my favorite album by the band.

Status

I own this album on CD.

Track Listing

All songs written by Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink. The album also credits both equally for vocals, but I believe Taylor sings lead on the majority of the album's tracks. I'd like to fill in the column with the lead, but I can't discern their individual voices well enough to do so. If someone who is more adept is able to do so, please offer help.
