Anyone lucky enough to have heard this band's EP released earlier this year, will be jumping for joy at the prospect of having a whole new albums-worth of material to listen to!

Beautifully fragile yet astonishingly yearning vocals are provided by Joan Wasser, formerly of Antony and The Johnsons and Rufus Wainwright's band, amongst a myriad of other musical projects.

The band create intricate and complicated melodic structures, combining soul with folk, art-rock with old-style r'n'b...and succeed at every level.

I haven't stopped listening to this since I got it...it is a collection of the joyous and the tragic, the obsession and the surrender - beautifully poised, intelligent lyrics coupled with the warmest sound dynamic that you might ever hear...sheer genius

THE TIMES - 10.6.2006

Joan As Police Woman - " Real Life" (Reveal)

**** (4/5 stars)

Q MAGAZINE - 7.06 (Q recommends)

` Sublime debut.. flooringly beautiful.. absolutely devastating'

**** (4/5 stars)

UNCUT MAGAZINE - 7.06

`There is fire in the sophistication, could be Willie Mitchell producing a more melodic Kim Gordon'

**** (4/5 stars)

THE GUARDIAN - 27.05.06

` Joan Wasser is the best champagne in the world. A voice so wonderous and moving that it makes everyone else's seem ordinary and mundane, the indie generation's Dusty Springfield. The Ride is the most hypnotic and majestic sad song ever and so good it will make you shiver'

( Record Of The Week)

THE TELEGRAPH - 10.6.2006

Joan As Police Woman - " Real Life" (Reveal)

` For once a bizarre name flags a genuinely idiosyncratic talent. Real Life contains as much naked emotion as it does artful cleverness. A constant thrill'

THE SUN - 9.06.2006

Joan As Police Woman - " Real Life" (Reveal)

` I defy anyone to not to be smitten by Joan As Police Woman's highly original songs, the product of a woman with an open mind and her ears to the ground'

**** (4/5 stars)

THE GUARDIAN GUIDE - 10.6.2006

` A sedately - paced collection of beautifully sung torch songs, this feels like a quality band

that will be playing in theatres pretty soon.. get in early'

I find the reviews here quite puzzling. I found this record to be very middle-of-the-road. Her voice lacks passion somehow and a lot of the songs are quite bland.
