5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific album, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strange Conversation (MP3 Download)
What a terrific album! Like quite a few people in the UK I came across Kris Delmhorst when Since You Went Away featured in the TV series Case Histories and I tracked this album down from there. It's really excellent in my view - thoughtful, intelligent, tuneful and varied.

Kris Delmhorst has based these songs on works by poets. Some are settings of words close to the original and others loosely adapted but all work very well. As examples, Masefield's Sea Fever is truly beautiful and her adaptation of pretty how town by e.e. cummins is deceptively up-beat, giving it a great impact. The songs have elements of country, folk and jazz all of which are exceptionally well played and sung and the overall effect is stunning, I think.

Kris Delmhorst is less well-known than she deserves to be on this evidence. She is a fine songwriter and a great performer with a lovely voice, and I recommend this album very warmly.
