Format: Audio CD
A step forward from her first album which was also very good, but sparser instrumentally. She has a really trad soul/gospel voice, and could have played it safe with her career. The overall effect though is high quality art-rock, and she has a way with melody and song structure which is really original and deserves a huge audience. In a weird way, I'm reminded of early Roxy Music, not because of the sound but because of the mix of old and futuristic blending seamlessly. A major talent.

Format: Audio CD
Without question, and without this being a problem, the singular greatest strength of this album is the powerful vocal of Al Spx. There are fine additions like the arrangements, some brief harmonies as on Old Knives, rollicking drumming, mournful to caustic horn attacks as on opener A Broken Memory, Michael Gira providing a vocal bass line on a couple of tracks like Exit Plan - a slow song where Spx’s voice is superb in its brooding intensity - but it is that vocal which rightly impresses above all.

Closing track A Season of Doubt, the other with Gira providing a spoken vocal undertow, is the perfect vehicle for Spx’s powerful authority, a simple slow piano beat and some overdubbed lamenting horns adding magnificent mournfulness. I’ve read reviews that rue a lack of melodies on the album – and I am a great lover of melodic prettiness and/or memorableness - but it is the moodiness wrapped in such a sublime vocal that does all it needs to.

HASH(0x928e2588) out of 5 stars She does it again 30 Aug. 2014

Cold Specks is absolutely brilliant, and this album is no exception. Slightly darker than her first album, this one is as perfect as it can get.
