5.0 out of 5 stars Reach to the stars.., 25 Oct 2000

This review is from: To Stars (Audio CD)
The latest Jacques album sees Anthony Reynolds' further developing his distinct brand of black humour and orchestral driven indie pop. Similar in style to the Jack debut album ("Pioneer Soundtracks") "To Stars" is quite simply a mesmerisingly beautiful album from start to finish. Reynold's vocals are equisite and recall Brett Anderson at his most operatic. Deep and soothing they amplify the damaged beauty of his lyrical obsessions, namely drink, drugs, sex and the city. Aside from the Divine Comedy no other band at the moment is making such bold, assured, daring and above all grandiose indie. "Blue Party" is an achingly gorgeous tune, the cracked vocals and gently strummed acoustic guitars building into one of the finest recorded moments for Jacques so far. "What You Do To Me" however is the standout track here, an ode to a previous girlfriend tinged with regret and heartbreak but also strangely bitter and defiant. At times it's difficult to see exactly what the difference is between Jack and Jaques. Both appear to adhere to a decadent bohemian like lifestyle and aside from the odd burst of accordion the music is rarely that different. This album is destined to be a hidden gem although it deserves much more, my advice is to buy it now!
