Biography

PINES, Alison Sudol's third full-length as A Fine Frenzy (release date: October 9, 2012), is a fable about a pining tree who is given the unheard-of chance (for a conifer) to make a life of her own choosing. Drawing inspiration from the redwood forests and dramatic landscapes of Northern California and Washington's Cascade Mountains, the thirteen new original songs survey a sonic ...

Wow! This young woman deserves to be massive. I stumbled upon this release when I was looking at Amazon.com, and they had a mini feature on Alison (otherwise known as A Fine Frenzy) just before the release of the CD. Her music was described as beautiful piano led melodies. The fact that she also wrote her own music and lyrics also appealed to me - this shows real talent, rather than yet another pretty young face with a style and image manufactured by a music label. I have now had ONE CELL IN THE SEA for only a couple of days, but I can honestly say that this is one of the best releases that I have heard for a long time.

The melodies are superb and the lyrics are intelligent and original. Alison's voice is also fantastic - she has quite a distinctive voice - and she has great range and pitch.
The songs are a mixture of straightforward love songs (such as "Almost Lover") along with more conceptually themed tracks (such as "Rangers"). "Almost Lover" is actualy the song that struck me most on first hearing the whole album - it is beautifully sad; the music is subtle with a slow tempo, but there is bags of emotion supplied through her voice and the lyrics which show a maturity behind her tender years.

Other standout tracks for me include "You Picked Me" which is a lovely uptempo love song, describing how, like an apple from a tree, her lover picked her even though she was difficult to reach. "Ashes and Wine" is another sad love song about the end of a relationship and the hope that it may be rekindled.
I could go on and list all of them. This album is so well executed and produced that there are really no fillers. It really is an incredibly accomplished piece of work.

I was recommended A Fine Frenzy a while ago, and when I heard "Almost Lover", I was absolutely blown away. Just stunning...her voice and lyrics are absolutely beautiful. Yes she's going to get Tori Amos comparisons all over because she's a redhead that plays the piano, but although I love Tori, that's not fair; she's an artist in her own right, and I actually think her songs are nothing like Tori's. A lot of the album is about disappointment in love, and there there are hearbreaking songs such as "Almost Lover" (simply the best song I've heard in a long time, and one of the best-break up tracks ever written), about someone that was never quite officially your lover but led you on dramatically, which makes the heartache even worse when things end, as you don't even have the chance to say you'd been together properly - it's hard not to feel the pain when she sings 'I'd never want to see you unhappy / I thought you'd want the same for me...' and 'I cannot go to the ocean / I cannot drive the streets at night / I cannot wake up in the morning / Without you on my mind.' Who hasn't been there? Then there's "Ashes and Wine", about being on the receiving end of a break-up (feauturing the beautiful lyrics 'I'll drown in my tear-storming sea / That would show you, that would make you hurt like me') and having to let go but not quite wanting to; 'Is there a chance you may change your mind?' And then there's "Near To You", another stand-out track, about trying to move on but not quite being able to.Read more ›

A Fine Frenzy is basically singer/songwriter Alison Sudol, and I suppose you could say that it's a wise decision to at least have the pretence of a stage name. After all, female singer-songwriters are ten a penny these days.

The blurb tells us she taught herself to play piano and is a fan of classical music, Motown, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Louis Armstrong, amongst others. A disparate array of influences perhaps, but ones that are brought together to surprisingly haunting effect.

The music is beautifully pitched, with delightful piano that never descends into the pop parody of a, say, Delta Goodrem, and Sudol has a disarming voice that you'll not be able to resist falling in love with.

What marks this album out from the pack is it's lyrical excellence as well. The claimed fantasy influences of such authors as EB White and CS Lewis is clear in the "tale" songs in her repertoire (such as The Minnow & The Trout) yet the songs which are more firmly based in the heartfelt real life side of things (such as You Picked Me) are just as good.

As ever, or so it seems, the criticism would be that it's all a bit one-paced and there is nothing much that differentiates each track from the one that follows it. It's not that much of a criticism, given that there isn't a track that you'd really want to skip every time and the lush production and Sudol's beautiful voice are just as good every time.

The one exception to the similarity is album closer, Borrowed Time, which sees Sudol pick up the acoustic guitar and pluck out a delicate, fruity melody that might recall Travis' best moments to some.

There's a lot to admire on this debut, and it's faults shouldn't dissuade you from checking it out, especially if it sounds like your kind of thing in general. In essence it's a pretty good debut that simultaneously marks A Fine Frenzy as one to watch and also suggests that there's more to come next time around.
