But, Really?! No Music Videos???,
This review is from: Two Suns [CD+DVD] (Audio CD)
Well, the record's been out for a few months now so I don't know if I need to say anything about the music. Yes it's more produced and a tad more commercial than "Fur & Gold". I don't think that is a cynical ploy on the part of Ms. Khan though. Probably just a reflection on what she was getting in to at the time. The album is a 5 star effort to begin with (in my opinion) and the bonus tracks just make it all the more wonderful.Being a huge fan of Tom Waits, I really enjoy her take on "Lonely" from "Closing Time". Her version of "A Forest" is one of the many high points of the very wonderful Cure tribute CD "Perfect As Cats" The live tracks sound great and are wonderfully recorded.I really wish the Analog Suicide mix of Daniel(by the uber-talented Tara Busch who's fantastic version of "Let's Go To Bed" makes the afforementioned Cure tribute one of last year's "must-have" releases)had been included though.
That brings me to my other complaint.Since I suspect many of us are buying this a second time to get the extra tracks and the DVD, I don't see why the "Daniel" & "Pearl's Dream" music videos couldn't have been included as extras.But since the listing told exactly what was on the DVD,I couldn't really bring myself to deduct a star for that.
