The Millennium

5 A.M.

Song Review by

An unexpected Top Ten hit in the Philippines, of all places, "5 A.M." went on to become the closest thing to fame that the Millennium ever achieved. A gentle, yearning folk-style chord progression melts with a beautiful pop arrangement, which is buttressed by the band's always well-executed harmonies. Lyrically, the feeling of the pre-dawn hour is rendered in a nearly magical style here, and makes it one of Sandy Salisbury's shining moments.
