5.0 out of 5 stars The most beautiful album you will buy this year. 10 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
I heard a track by this Manchester singer-songwriter on the radio and bought the album immediately. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since. The title track, "Like an aspen leaf" kicks off with haunting strings and Weaver's voice floats over the top in perfect contrast. There's a strange, saw-like part, must be a cello or violin, which adds to the eerie sound. "A bird stole the gold" ploughs the same furrow with playing behind the bridge continuing the rasping theme. Weaver was apparently born in the same hospital as John Lennon and cites Kate Bush as a major influence. Themes from both these litter the album. Track three, "Bow & Arrow, Ball of string" is a slow, melodic number that really lets Weaver's voice shine. She hits high, long notes with what appears to be the minimum of effort, gently gliding along. A quiet guitar and piano accompany her. "The heart that buckled you" just makes want to sit back and let it wash all over you. Great for the bath. Silky smooth vocals, the same simple accompaniment. Juppy and Craig from Elbow join in on drums and piano, tempted by Weaver's offer of 'a sandwich and cake'. "Ridiculous" features Naomi Hart on cello, basically playing a bass part. This is a sunny afternoon in the park; drifting along on the breeze. My favourite, track six, "Flowers bloom again" has a legato Spanish guitar intro with a quiet military-style snare drum keeping time. Weaver's voice again soars above the music with beautiful precision. This is a two part vocal which gives it acres of depth. It just seems to go "deep" into the music. The song finishes with a shimmering cornet solo. Finally, "Why don't you smile" brings proceedings to a close with a simple melody and moody strings. I absolutely love this album. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and beautiful 10 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Jane Weaver's music wouldn't be out of place on a film soundtrack. It's formula of female singer/guitar/piano/soft drums is hardly original but it this album is very close to the top of its league.
The sound she creates is mellow without being boring and each track has a flavour of its own.
So why only four stars? There are a couple of tracks on here that do sound out of sync to the rest of the album - 'A Bird Stole The Gold' being of prime example. Lyrically, the songs are heartfelt but not completely memorable.
However, 'The Heart That Buckled You' is quite simply a stunning example of just how beautiful Jane Weaver's music can be.
Buy this with confidence.
