5.0 out of 5 stars Keren's best album to date..., 30 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Keren Ann (Audio CD)
I love this album. It is a lot more varied than previous outings and easily keeps the listener interested throughout. I have no idea what Keren lsitens to hersef but influences appear to ooze from every track: Mazzy Star, Radiohead, Portishead, Bowie, Talking Heads, the Velvets and the J&MC perhaps some of them?? (in good company there then..). For me this is definitely one of the best albums of 2007, though it doesn't seem to have figured anywhere. A slow burner that will gain a wider audience over time??? Here's hoping...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, honest and succinct portrait of Van Gogh, 30 Jan. 2007
Borrowed this book from my sister many years ago and regularly re-read it. A brilliant account of Van Gogh's life and work with truly insightful excerpts from numerous letters to family and friends. Paints a totally honest picture of Van Gogh's life, emphasising his spirit and dedication, which along with his genius led to such amazing works of art. Van Gogh's battles with depression and mental breakdown are dealt with honestly, and are never used to explain his gifts as an artist. Highly recommended.
