Biography

Singer-songwriters are meant to trade in whimsical pleasures, in the soft strums of a guitar, in worlds so delicate and small they could shatter at a single touch. Martha Wainwright doesn't trade alongside them. Back with a second record that's both tender and tough, beautiful and brutal, and simmering with invention and confidence, Martha forgot to read the rulebook. Either that, or ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marmite Factor ( I Love It ! ) 7 Dec 2012
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Martha Wainwright is never going to be everybody's cup of tea. She wasn't
born to surf the mainstream and has always been comfortable in her own
distinct musical territory; an uncompromising artist whose deeply personal
muse sometimes touches nerves which we might wish were better left alone.

Then there's that voice; guttural, rough and ready (in the best possible way)
and with the capacity to make your hair stand on end if you'll just let it in.
Powerful, emotional and ready to reach into the darkest corners of the soul
in the service of authenticity. A Marmite voice if ever there was one and love
it or hate it (I love it!) it's an honest, affecting and unique instrument.

'Come Home To Mama' is the third album of her own compositions (with the
exception of the beautiful 'Proserpina' written by her Mother Kate McGarrigle)
and contains some of her strongest material. Producer Yuka Honda is another
maverick at heart and brings a rich immediacy to the recording. The voice is
always well-forward in the mix; the instrumental arrangements serve the music
well with their occasional judicious use of electronics to enhance a remarkably
diverse sonic palette. The collaboration has clearly been a fruitful one.

From the blistering opening bars of 'I Am Sorry' with its foursquare pounding
percussion and grinding electric guitar riffs; through the upbeat, almost
radio-friendly melody of 'Can You Believe It?', sporting some fruity honking
sax decorations and the sublimely winding vocal line of 'Leave Behind', we sense
a songwriter working at the top of her game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime!! 15 Oct 2012
By Kiss73
Format:Audio CD
This is Martha's fourth album (third of original material - her last album was a Edith Piaf "tribute") and the striking thing about all four albums is that each one stands on it's own, with it's own sound and being somewhat different from the last, but very much reflecting a natural progression of age, beauty and maturity and all being undeniably Martha.

In an age where there are some very good but very unoriginal sounding female vocalists, her voice is one of the most compelling there has been for a very long time. Piaf could only have been so lucky as to have someone with this voice and vocal control attempting her songs.

Never one to shy away from personal and intimate subjects, this may be her most directly personal collection of songs yet, both in subject matter, and of course the astonishing version of one of her late mothers songs "Proserpina". It says something of the strength and impact of a song when, in a family home where the age's span 5-44, each and every member has been singing this song around the house since it was released as a single a number of weeks ago.

The album does have a very contemporary, but ageless sound to it. The choice of producer, Yuka Honda - a female artist/producer who clearly understands and compliments Martha's work, was a sublime choice.

This is the time of year, leading up to Christmas, where the number of new releases is verging on ridiculous, however if you are looking for an artist of originality and beauty and an album which will enrich your collection, please buy this one.

I love Martha Wainwright! This album is brilliant, better than "I know you're married but I've got feelings too". I'm absolutely addicted to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of her best 2 July 2013
By J
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Martha wainwright is an acquired taste. For a long time she just sang about the chip on her shoulder. Now she has some things to be happy about too. Still a bit samey so I don't reach for the repeat button when listening to the album.
You may prefer and especially if you are a fan get the new family tribute album to her mother the great Kate McGarrigle.

I saw Martha Wainwright at the Shepherd's Bush Empire, I didn't any of her new songs. It was such a beautiful concert that I bought the CD straight away. Great voice, very inspiring.
