Editors' Notes “Holy Father, we need to talk/I have a secret that I can’t keep.” Though it’s the first line of the fiery standout “HIM,” it’s a sentiment that sets the tone for The Thrill of It All, a diary-like album that has all the power and intimacy of a confession—as well as the catharsis that follows. Smith’s voice sounds as impressive as ever throughout. “Burning” is a spare, piano-led ballad inspired by the personal struggles that accompanied his breakthrough success. “Pray,” another gospel-informed stunner, soars with an uplifting choir and handclapped groove courtesy of Timbaland.
