I believe sadly this was A.C.Marias' only Cd, but would be delighted to be corrected. Mute have always taken the risk and given opportunities to very talented and diverse musicians. A.C.Marias fit this bill perfectly. Precise delicate, and unforgetably atmospheric. I have literally thousands of CD's, being slightly obsessive, and a tad on the autistic/asperger's syndrome spectrum, but this album is one of a kind. The only musician's even close to creating the fragility and beauty of this haunting album are Julee Cruise, Antony and the Johnsonsand This mortal Coil. The title track etched itself upon my psyche instantly. An unspoken classic. I only recently was able to purchase the cd version, and was delighted that there was an additional track, 'Time Was'. If you ever saw the video for the title track, you'd never of forgotten it. Crystalline, eery and delicate production, well worth every penny.

AC Marias was the name adopted for this one-off album project by filmmaker and photographer Angela Conway, best known for her work with many Mute artists and Maria McKee. The album centres on Angela's fragile but ethereal vocals, and musically she is supported by the likes of Wire's Bruce Gilbert. At the time of its release in 1989, what made such an impression were the videos for "Triby's Couch" and the title track. If you regulary watched indie music show "Snub TV" in those days then the chances are you remember these videos. Directed by and featuring Conway herself, they were stunning, ethereal classics that for me easily rank as the best videos of their era. The album itself is still wonderful, but when I hear those tracks it is the enduring imagery of the videos that renders them so important to me.

Soothingly Dissonant 4 Oct. 2007
By Music Geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I first heard "One of Our Girls," I had been watching "Twin Peaks" on TV back in 1990. This album, kinda like the first few episodes of "TP," marries odd, slightly unsettling textures with angelic, pleasant, and comforting tidbits. The reason why I was drawn to the album in the first place was because I was (and am) a big Wire fan. Though AC Marias is nothing like Wire, both bands share a tendency to challenge your ideas about music. Be forewarned: "One of Our Girls" is not everyone's cup of tea. I was so enthralled when I first purchased the CD back in '90 that I showed my sister, whose musical tastes I respect without question. When she heard the opening track, "Trilby's Couch," she laughed. Later on, I lent the CD to a friend and I only came to replace the album just now. I feel elated to have AC Marias back in my personal soundtrack.
Is AC Marias good for you, though? That's a tough one to call.
You would best be served by trying to find some sample bites before you dish out 20 bucks to get this one. If, on the other hand, you are familiar with AC Marias, then you shouldn't blink twice. Get this CD in your collection ASAP. Like this CD there is no other.
