My New Favourite Album,
This review is from: Ballad of the Broken Seas (Audio CD)
A huge Belle & Sebastian fan, my girlfriend bought this album by ex-B&S member Isobel Campbell and when we both heard it for the first time we weren't that keen.
However, after hearing it once or twice I am absolutely in love with it and had to go and buy my own copy.
At first listening there seemed to be just a little too much contrast between her delicate voice and his gruff voice but it works really, really well.
Something about Mark laneglan's voice reminds me of Tom Waites' soundtract for the film 'Down by Law'.
