Graceful and elegant,
This review is from: Blood (Audio CD)
Blood includes the talents of Alison Limerick, Kim Deal, Tanya Donelly and Heidi Berry. Haunting voices drift across oneiric soundscapes in a harmonious blend of their own material and songs by legends like Gene Clark and David Crosby, among others.
Strange things happen as the meandering music carries one eastward to bliss in isles of orchids and westward to wonder in the lands of the blessed. They equal one of their most beautiful interpretations, Tim Buckley's Song To The Siren (from 1986's Filigree And Shadow) on their version of Mary Margaret O'Hara's Help Me Lift You Up, in a quivering, atmospherical treatment.
An uncompromisingly poetic collection where the lyrics and music have been meticulously crafted to paint the most evocative moodscapes in pieces like With Tomorrow, The Lacemaker, the sorrowful I Come And Stand At Every Door and Late Night, a sweet interpretation of the Syd Barrett song. Blood is glorious epitaph to an idea that produced some of the most magical music of the late 80s/early 90s.
