5.0 out of 5 stars Dressed in excellence., 7 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Dressed in Voices (MP3 Download)
I have been listening to MA for only about two years and I am a massive fan. I now have all of their albums and I have seen them live twice. They are astounding.

In spite of their relentless touring and changes in personnel, this excellent album has appeared less than 24 months after its predecessor. Both its predecessor, 'The Ghost Moon Orchestra', and this album are among their best work along with their earliest albums, which are different musically.

Yes, it does need to be listened to as a whole. Yes it is about losing one's life by being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Yes it is about time standing still so that we can look at the life of the victim. At times, it feels a little bit like an extended requiem for the loss of loved ones (especially dads) but it is as ultimately uplifting as the best of their work. And, somehow, two very different vocalists narrating the same story works.

It is powerful, passionate, emotional, moving, melodic and superbly played. There is a strong spiritual aspect to it. Bryan's guitar playing is as big a highlight as always (although I seem to have missed an all out belter of a guitar solo from this album like the one on, for example 'Tennyson Mansion'. I think his vocals are effective. Olivia sounds great as ever. I think that Ian Jennings has done an amazing job on the keyboards. There is range of musical styles, more so than ever before.

It's a brilliant album, and Bryan Josh is one clever, talented guy.
