Greek singer-songwriter Athena Andreadis has been causing quite a stir with her live shows and her self-released EP. This debut album, first released last year, is now given a new lease of life with two extra tracks - "For This Love Affair" and "This Life".
However, neither new track eclipses the earlier offerings. Athena writes confessional love songs, though the poetic atmosphere is more Christina Rossetti than Sylvia Plath. Most moving is the ghostly Satie-esque title track, full of muted passion, which was the original set's closer; the soaring "Eden (Garden State)" is another high point, Athena's soaring soprano framed by a minimalist backing track.
