Their decision to collaborate was taken at the beginning of 2006. Prior to that, both had performed as solo artists at open mic nights but utilised the other as a backing partner.

Product Description

The captivating third and self-titled album from Angus & Julia Stone featuring the single ‘A Heartbreak’ is the best record the siblings have ever made. A record born out of chance and spontaneity with the help of legendary producer Rick Rubin. It when Rubin heard Angus and Julia’s music playing at a friend’s party, he quickly decided he had to get in contact and invited them to LA to work on a new album at his Shangri La Studios in Malibu. Unconvinced they should break from their individual plans, it was after spending time with Rubin over a few months that thoughts about getting back together started to form. Four years on from their last joint effort, Angus & Julia have delivered an album that defies expectations. Call it a coming of age or a re-invention, but the new self-titled record is their most exciting, visceral listen yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Good 6 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is some great music around at the moment.... but this is something really special. Angus and Julia Stone under the influence of Rick Rubin have produced an album that sounds like an album rather than a collection of singles. The production values are superb and the music its just fabulous. What does it sound like well.... Hope Sandoval meets Paulo Nutini meet Dylan meets Neil Young. If you like real melody with great vocals then you will not be disappointed. I am a big fan of The War on Drugs recent Lost in a Dream album but this runs it very close for my record of 2014 so far. Angus and Julia Stone play a couple of venues in the UK in December i will definitely be there.

Everything I was hoping for and then some, this album is ethereally perfect. Don't leave the free mp3 download unchecked, there are 3 extra tracks on there and they're wonderful.
I can't imagine my life without Angus and Julia ♡

By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Angus and Julia Stone, the brother-sister duo from Australia, debuted in 2007 with their "A Book Like This" album, reminding us of other indie-folk bands like the Weepies. With their next album, 2010's "Down This Way", the Stones expanded their musical landscape beyond just the folksy-intimate sound, and with great results. Now, after what seems like forever, the Stone siblings finally return with their third album.

"Angus & Julia Stone" (13 tracks; 60 min.) opens with the pleasant "A Heartbreak", with Angus and Julia's voices juxtaposed in perfect harmony: Julia's dreamy, at times angelic, voice against Angus' deeper, at times baritone voice. I love it when they sing together. "My Word For It" reminds me of Aimee Mann. "Grizzly Bear" has that certain SoCal Laurel Canyon vibe to it, and in fact that is true for a number of songs on here (check also "Get Home" and "From the Stalls", among others). If it's not clear by now, the folksy sound from the debut album has pretty much disappeared by now ("Wherever You Are" is the only song that is somewhat reminiscent of the early sound). The album closer, an epic 7 min. "Crash and Burn", even leans towards the bluesy side. A great way to finish things out. Maybe it's just me, but the album is a bit too long for its own good, and it would've been fine by me to leave off "Please You" and "Main Street", both of which drag on way too long.

Bottom line, despite perhaps being a bit too long, this is nevertheless a very fine album. When a band or artist releases a self-titled album years into their career, it's usually to try and reintroduce themselves to the outside world. This album is by far the most accessible of the Stones output to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Foul language is unnecessary 30 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album not unlike the Civil Wars first album but with one big flaw.
The track 'Other things' has some completely unnecessary foul language, it is just not
in keeping with the rest of the album. Therefore you cannot play it to your children or your parents.
An embarrassing mistake.

2.0 out of 5 stars A handful of good tracks. Little diversity on the album
A handful of good tracks. Little diversity on the album. Massively overhyped and a little mediocre. Coquettish female vocals cringeworthy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprised
Simple songs that are well crafted and interesting. I was surprised I liked it but I do. Perhaps the novelty will wear off though.

A 70s reboot for Angus and Julia. Today I prefer the more vulnerable sound of earlier albums and find the guitar effects a little intrusive, but I'm sure this album will grow on... Read more
