5.0 out of 5 stars A great solo effort, 11 May 2007
This review is from: Out Of The Woods (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the back of hearing the excellent 'It's all true'- track 3 on the album. That track is a smooth, electronica tune, quite reminiscent of EBTG of old. Elsewhere, the album is mostly a far more sombre and chilled-out affair, save for a quite deep-housey track, 'Grand Canyon' (track 9, also a great tune, I haven't checked but it sounds suspiciously Ben Watts-produced). This is a good thing however. If you're considering this album in the first place you will already be well-aware of Thorn's intoxicating vocals and she has truly surpassed herself with this effort. All the tracks on here are at least pretty good, most are very good. Thought-provoking and reflective lyrics are the order of the day, and when you've finished listening through it (it only takes 45 mins) you get the feeling that you've really listened to something quite exceptional. The stand-out tracks for me are 'Grand Canyon' and the track that immidiatley follows it, 'By Piccadily station I sat down and wept'- 2 hugely contrasting tunes that demonstrate the depth of this album and Thorn's unquestionale talent. I'm sure some of you would agree with me that all too many reviewers seem keen to dish out 5*'s for music that ends up as more like a 3*. This is a genuine 5* album and one of the best CD's i've heard so far this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but not outstanding, 28 July 2004
This review is from: Beach House 04.04 (Audio CD)
Hed Kandi have come up with the goods again with this summer's Beach House. As usual there is a great line up of funky tunes. 'Ever After' by Bonnie Bailey and the cool Eric Kupper Mix of 'Breather' by Afterlife really stand out. It is not however, the best Beach House offering though; that accolade still belongs to the outstanding Summer '02 CD. A great Summer soundtrack all the same though, well worth a listen.
