Not a fan,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Once I Was An Eagle (Audio CD)
Confession, I don't really like Laura Marling. I find her tunes and lyrics a bit strained, 'needy' and derivative. But this was a gift for Anabel and she's a Big Fan. The great thing was that as well as a really quick delivery of the CD itself, I got the MP3 file on Amazon Play (?) thrown in for the same price. So, even if the post had come after the birthday, I could have burnt a dodgy interim CD to make do until the real thing arrived. The packaging itself is nice bcause it is a card sleeve and not one of those nast polystyrene jewel cases that arrive cracked and fall apart. Cardboard is MUCH better packaging solution for us older folks who still need a hard copy of our music purchases. For what it is, this is an excellent product, especially if you like Laura Marling's music. As it happens, I don't, but it takes all sorts and I'm not too proud to get a gift that someone else would like even if I wouldn't personally waste shelf space on it. I'm sure Laura's a lovely lass and all that so I hope she doesn't mind that not everyone like her stuff. I'm sure enough people do to help her make a decent living out of her music - and that's as honourable a way of paying of the rent as any.
