In A Field Of her Own,
This review is from: Fisherman's Woman (Audio CD)
There's much more to Emilaina Torrini than the woman who wrote "Slow" and Gollum's Song". This is an album of pastoral brilliance, you can imagine each song taking place in a imaginary seaside town (well, she does live in Brighton).
"Sunny Road" is the one that got me into this album, mainly due to it's plays on Radio 1's The Blue Room. A song that's both hopeful and regretful at the same time, it made getting up for work on a Saturday a little brighter. "Lifesaver" continues in the same vein, accomapnied by creaking sails and ropes.
If you like Nick Drake or Kathryn Williams, you'll love this. If you don't, buy it anyway. Should be one of 2005's best, and it's only February.
