5.0 out of 5 stars "I cried tears", says emotional reviewer, 14 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Lamb (Audio CD)
Forget all the music genre stuff you read about jazz, trip-hop and drum-n-bass. This is a record of rare substance and beauty. A singer who must have wrung herself dry of emotion, pouring out her heart at once with power and edgy vulnerability. She combines at times with hard, harsh rhythms, at times with ambient layers, at times with minimalist acoustic hints, to create something which leaves you breathless. A voice as luscious as Liz Frasers, as acrobatic as Bjorks, but with more variety, adding its own mark of simplicity, fragility and soul. The record has some experimental flaws - once or twice Barlow's backing and production get a little to close to the selfconsciously "interesting" - but it is rich in ideas and the more endearing for it. It is a stunning debut, beautiful and inspiring. Within the first minute, the way she sings "Only you can soothe me.." to those chords will have the hair on the back of your neck on end.
