5.0 out of 5 stars So chilled it could cool champagne, 4 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Fisherman's Woman (Audio CD)
Emiliana Torrini is a star waiting for the full star treatment. Her album Love In The Time of Science (to all intents and purposes, her debut, despite two little known earlier works), drew critical acclaim but didn't make a big impact in the charts. Singles like Easy and Unemployed In Summertime gained airplay on Radio 2, but somehow the mainstream didn't take to Emiliana, and having seen her in concert, I wondered if she was just *too* cool for commercial success.

The singer of Gollum's Song from Lord of the Rings gained more recognition through association with the phenomenally successful films, but has still been largely passed by in the UK. This album, Fisherman's Woman, is so calming, so reflective, that you can't help but be hugely impressed.

Production is almost non-existent. Not for Emiliana the trip-hoppy riffs and loops that accompanied some of the tracks on her previous album. Most of the songs here are raw, acoustic numbers that might well have been first takes. This is music as it should be, just a beautiful voice allowed to seduce the listener accompanied by a gentle strumming guitar.

You won't hear this album at a party or in a nightclub. You won't hear the songs making an impact on the charts. Good - because this is something that should almost be kept secret. Buy it, enjoy it by a log fire with a glass of wine, and savour the beautiful sounds of Emiliana Torrini.
