vagabond ways [edizione: regno unito] [import]marianne faithfull (artista) | formato: audio cd

Amazon.co.uk Review

"Oh, doctor please. I drink and I take drugs. I love sex and I move around a lot." The opening words of this album, and as the summation of a gloriously misspent youth, they're kind of hard to beat, cementing Faithfull's claim to the title of Greatest Living Englishwoman. Her first album since 20th Century Blues offers up a diverse collection of material: an old Roger Waters composition, "Incarceration of a Flower Child", opens with a musical phrase he would revisit, 15 years later, in "Your Possible Pasts" (from The Final Cut album); but Faithfull interprets it as a simple lament to lost innocence, the days of "good dope and cheap wine"--though its chorus rather deliberately punctures the dream ("It's gonna get old in the 1970s"). And with its mocking air of self-pity, its ruined grandeur, Leonard Cohen's "Tower of Song" might have been written with her in mind. But it's that title track and "Electra", two ruthless slices of self-examination ("You'd think she owns the streets of Dublin"), which truly compel attention. Singular, magnificent. --Andrew McGuire

If one had to choose just one artiste to reflect the last forty-odd years of music, life, the universe and everything; then Miss Faithful does so as no other ever could. She captures facets of all our paths; holding our head whilst directing our eyes and hearts, making us remember, making us see again, making us hear our inner selves.....lost lives thrust and dangled before us. She encapsulates much more than mere music. I admit it, I just don't have the vocabularly to sufficiently define her import. All I really know, is after listening to Miss Faithfull I am strangely bereft, but not abandoned.....she is the breeeze that blows across the decades; often a chilling caress, but always, always deeply inspirational.

Format: Audio CD
The predominantly somber Vagabond Ways is a shimmering masterpiece without even one throwaway track. Five of these melodious pop songs were co-written by Marianne, with Barry Reynolds involved in the writing of three of them. Quite a few are reminiscences of the 1960s, like the title track, Roger Waters' Incarceration of a Flower Child, and File It Under Fun From The Past, an equally mournful song of regret & resignation adorned by cello & viola.

The atmospheric Marathon Kiss, written & co-produced by Daniel Lanois and with Emmylou Harris on backing vocals, is truly magnificent, the distilled essence of the early to mid 1980s era Faithfull when she maintained a creative peak with three consecutive albums on Island Records. Electra, Wilder Shores of Love & the romantic Great Expectations are similar down-tempo numbers of lost love and yearning.

Her exquisite interpretations lend new meaning to Leonard Cohen's I'm Your Man, the Roger Waters' song & For Wanting You, the Elton John/Bernie Taupin composition. The album concludes with Marianne's recital of the poem After The Ceasefire. Vagabond Ways is on a par with her classic trilogy of Broken English, A Child's Adventure and Dangerous Acquaintances - another radiant jewel in her crown and a definite five star album.

As someone who grew up in "love" with Marianne, I can relate to this CD more than most, although I originally thought the title song was about her, it's not.
The overall CD has the great feeling of late 90's late evening music words are quite deep and often very meaningful, Marianne's style and sound has switched from the sweet folk/pop to the more mature almost diva standard. It still gets deeper and more huskier in later CD's here it is very acceptable.

This is a great return to form. It's one of those rare albums without one dud track. Beautiful, melodic pop songs follow one another in a golden sequence of aural delight. My faves are (Leonard Cohen's) Tower Of Song, Marathon Kiss {"I cherish the night/of your marathon kiss/chemicals flying/Oh I love this"], Wilder Shores of Love, File It Under Fun, Vagabond Ways. She's singing with passion again and the material is first class.
