Biography

Compelled by a restless spirit, Van Etten is continuously challenging herself. Now, the result is Are We There, ... Read more in Amazon's Sharon Van Etten Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Stirring 7 Feb 2012
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sharon Van Etten's third album is a star studded affair. It contains Zach Condon (Beirut) and Aaron Dressner (The National) amongst others. In fact Dressner produces this. Her vocal style is reminiscent of Tanya Donnely at times but its a mainly acoustic and intimate album that shows real promise.

Van Etten's drawling style is given rousing accompaniments here with tracks that build through guitars and a mixture of strings, brass and piano. This feels like it contains a lot of heart. Listen to Ask where she ends by singing 'It hurts too much to laugh about it' to finish the slow build and you know that the effort isn't just in the tunes here. This is a rock album but don't expect large riffs all the time. Its a quieter affair most of the time actually and whilst the rocky Serpents really works it sounds very familiar but new at the same time. There is an attraction to the whole piece that pulls you back in and as a whole it will stay on the play list for some time.

Thoughtfully put together this will make Van Etten a more familiar name than just to her famous friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Chords 23 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
Bought the CD on the back of Serpents and although it's not representative of the album I'm so glad I did. Love the stark lyrics on tracks like Kevin's with it's refrain of "Dig your own grave" that sticks in your head long after you've played the track. Melancholia has rarely sounded so good. I can't stop playing the album which reaches a fitting climax with the final 4 songs. Saw SVE live in Cardiff in December including acoustic versions of Give Out and Leonard, that feature on the recently released deluxe edition of Tramp with the band reverting to electric guitars for a visceral Serpents and an utterly compelling rendition of I'm Wrong, replicating the cathedral of sound on the recorded version, ending in reverb.
My favourite track on the album has changed a number of times but is now the emotive All I Can, with it's cut glass vocals.
Music for adults, not felines and an album to treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 25 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can you say. This is brilliant. It has become my most played CD. It gets better with each listening. An unassuming artist who just happens to have enviable guest musicians. Class.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure 29 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this after she appeared on Jules Holland. 4 or 5 decent tracks and I have listened to it a few times in case it is a 'creeper', but the rest is rather tedious. Wouldn't rush to buy another one of hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best record of 2012 3 Jan 2013
By bemuse
Format:Audio CD
In a word, sublime. It grows with every listen, each track beautifully simple and complex at the same time, with melodies that all sound like ageless classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Excellent. 12 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sharon van Etten has been compared to many other recent female singer-songers - Cat Power, Laura Marling, etc. - but I won't have a word of it.

SVE has something, several things, that many of her 'rivals' might lack: a confidence and attitude in her voice and her songwriting (musically, melodically and lyrically), and she has a voice that is different while still being true and un-affected.

For those reasons I'd sooner compare her to the assuredness (if not the style and sound) of Rickie Lee Jones and Joni Mitchell than any of the other current solo women acts I have heard.

Tramp's moody intensity should appeal to fans of Arcade Fire, The National, Jeff Buckley and the like.
