a TON of time and energy went into this work of art. It shows.,
This review is from: Sparks (Audio CD)
Immi strikes again. Plainly said, "Sparks" continues Heap's longstanding tradition of blending passion, adventure, and technology in a luscious feast for the mind and companion for the soul. This album in particular seems to me a turning point in her life as a musician. Although I love all of her work, the pieces of this set seem to work with each other as a team more than jump out from one another; she has matured as an artist and she thinks in albums as well as in songs. All in all, "Sparks" is a reflection on everything we have grown to love about this unique and truly gifted woman as well as a portent of things to come. "Who am I now?" Heap ponders at the conclusion of "The Listening Chair;" indeed, Imogen has showcased her creativity in a new way and has certainly convinced this fan of her mesmerizing ability to continually redefine herself and her medium. Here's to many more destinations in this engaging journey!
