Wild, Wilder & Wildest,
This review is from: Herein Wild (Audio CD)
Frankie has come a long way from her more raucous days with The Vivian Girls & The Dum Dum Girls and has now finally perfected her move into dream pop territory.
Her album with 'The Outs' was good but not brilliant, 'Interstellar' was a big improvement but this is definitely her best to date.
Her vocals are as lovely as ever, the guitars twang & blaze in equal parts and the songs are all great.
There's the usual dreamy stuff but a lot of variation too. 'The Depths' has a more bass(y) sound with slightly (but still nice) off kilter vocals, 'Cliffs as high' is more sombre and orchestral, 'Requiem' has some brass accompaniment and 'Street of dreams' has other wordly vocals with an unusual 'proggy' coda!
