For those who either remember or have heard Marianne's 60s hit that made her famous, "As Tears Go By", you really must buy this album. Upon reading the track listing, you will feel reassured, since "As Tears Go By" features; however, you will soon be in for a huge surprise.
Recorded over 20 years after "As Tears Go By", "Strange Weather" demonstrates Marianne's darker, more mature side. This is the album of a woman who has lived (and almost died), and has chosen to express herself through the medium of Berlin cabaret songs, compositions by Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and Jerome Kern. (These same themes and styles would be returned to again over the next ten years, for example in "20th Century Blues" in 1996.)
Then, of course, there is THAT song. Gone is the sweet, chirpy, throwaway pop version of the 60s; in is the angst, the pain of everything associated with being an iconoclastic survivor whose "riches can't buy everything".
The voice is fractured, tortured and that of a woman deep in reflection. The album is intelligent, accessible and near-perfect, from the evocative "Strange Weather", to the camp Berlin cabaret of "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", to the achingly painful "Yesterdays", and the startling acapella defiance of "Ain' Goin' Down to the Well No Mo'".
This is a classic and timeless album in the true sense of the word. When listened along side "Broekn English" and "A Secret Life", it represents part of a trilogy of the greatest work of one of Britain's most brilliant, demanding, controversial, and essential female artistes.

'Strange Weather' is one of my favourite Marianne Faithfull albums, the perfect record to listen to whilst you're stuck inside your house on a rainy day. If you're looking for music to make you feel happy and lift you're spirits, you might want to look past this one, although, surprisingly, I do tend to personally find that many of the tunes here comfort and almost make me feel safe. Having said that, I can imagine some people finding this music very useful for one thing, to slit their wrists to.

What we have here is a wonderfully dark album, filled with hauntingly beautiful, very depressing songs, but that is very much part of it's appeal. This 1987 release is a fan favourite, and many consider it to be the legendary Marianne's finest work to date. The lady had given up drugs completely by the time this was released, and she was still under the influence of such when she recorded her comeback record 'Broken English' and onwards, so this was the first drug-free album from her in a very long time.

The Rolling Stones' penned 'As Tears Go By', Marianne's debut pop hit from 1964, is given a dramatic re-working here. If you are very familiar with the original recording, you'll be amazed once you hear this perfect re-recording. This pop standard is given the full torch ballad treatment, with Marianne's voice now deliciously deep and cracked as a result of her addictions. To compare the two recordings would be like comparing night and day, but listening to this standout track like it sounds here, makes me believe that this is how these gem should have always been recorded all along. If you're looking for the definitive version, you've got it right here.

Format: Audio CD
This introspective and melancholic 1987 album of covers represents Faithfull's take on the blues but there's also some gospel and a torch song or two. Strange Weather is a collection of famous and lesser known compositions by Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, The Stones, Leadbelly, Jerome Kern, Doc Pomus and Dr John, amongst others. The album is highly rated by most music critics but not particularly accessible to the casual fan.

Her interpretations are mostly slow, subdued and understated, as on Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, I Ain't Goin' Down To The Well No More, Yesterdays and the Tom Waits song Strange Weather. Highlights of the album include Dylan's I'll keep it With Mine, this awesome rendition of her 1960s hit As Tears Go By and the melancholy and moving folk song Sign Of Judgment.

The overall impression is one of detachment, not unlike A Secret Life, her collaboration with Angelo Badalamenti. I am thus not sure that fans of her pop-rock style will like it. But Strange Weather is definitely worth it for the tracks As Tears Go By and Sign Of Judgment. More accurate rating: three and a half stars. The album has been reissued with her Broken English masterpiece of 1979, showcasing two very different styles and phases of Faithfull's career.

One of my Marianne's preferred works. Simple, deep as she use to be. Mature woman with a particular history behind herself. I do like this album and more it shows some of her greatest songs.
