3.0 out of 5 stars Five Songs 20 Aug 2010
By Gideon
Format:Audio CD
Antony's follow-up to "The Crying Light" has been recorded very quickly. We were ready to wait another four years before a new album came out but, surprisingly, "Swanlights" will be with us in less than two months.

Is this new e.p. a suitable hors d'oeuvre?

- "Thank You For Your Love" is the song that will also be part of the new record. Here we find Antony in a very soulful, Otis Redding-inflected mood. Accompanied by a solid beat and a horn section, he winds his pristine vocals around a laconic, poignant lyric, leading the track towards a crescendo that sounds positively baffling on first listen, but that later on becomes lovelier and lovelier. Not a dramatic departure in style, though, and definitely one of his most commercial singles.

- "You Are The Treasure" and "My Lord, My Love" are piano-led ballads, the former very short and repetitive, the latter just a little more complex with the addition of strings and a slow, brushed beat. They are pleasant enough, but the general effect is Antony by numbers.

- "Pressing On", a Bob Dylan song, comes presumably from one of Mr Zimmerman's christian albums. This is a charming, shimmering version, built around a suspended mesh of light percussions and gently strummed guitars, as usual graced by Antony's fragrant tones.

- "Imagine" is - you have probably guessed it - a composition by Mr Lennon. It seems an absurd choice for a cover and - in our humble opinion - a definite drop in credibility on Antony's part. Why bother with such a worn out "classic", a song that is usually trundled out whenever poeple feel like stating the obvious? Do we need Antony to be this obvious to be accepted by the mainstream?

That said, he gets away with it (nearly) unscathed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary beauty 5 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My advice is.... just listen.
(without prejudice! Without any "where does this fit in his body of work?" "How does it follow the last album?")
I think these are wonderful, deceptively simple and repetitive songs on the theme of spirituality.
Thank You For Your Love - a big swelling soul influenced track, with punching horns and wonderfully dizzying culmination that fades off far too quickly.
You Are My Treasure - just piano and vocals. A short and beautiful track. Tremulous twisting vocals.
My Lord My Love - piano, voice, strings, and a little drums. Soft tinkling piano and vocals get swelled out by strings. Exceptionally beautiful.
Pressing On - simple and repetitive. Acoustic guitar, bass and vibraphone. Child-like and gorgeously subtle with the ringing sound of the vibes. (the sound reminds me, although is not the same as, Bjork's Vespertine album).
Imagine - I've always found this song a bit turgid, and that plodding piano, urgh! Anthony's version has a parred down simplicity that makes this song work for me. Just vocal, acoustic guitar and a repeating melancholic noise on a tape loop. As the vocals finish the loop keeps repeating. A mournful and slightly disturbing end.
One track of big soul and 4 achingly beautiful and intimate songs.
