Near musical perfection...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Under The Pink (Audio CD)
Ok, so I admit I'm probably biased in that I am in love with her, but it can't be denied that this is an excellent album. Haunting melodies and almos fairy tale imagery and piano work combine to make the mos beautiful album I own. I can put Cloud On My Toungue, Yes Anastasia, Pretty Good Year and Icicle on repeat and listen happily all day. That's not to say the other tracks aren't just as good. When she plays with a band, a la Cornflake Girl, God, Spacedog etc, the music takes on a different personality. The album hits an almighty high, and never comes back down. The word genious is far over used, and generally I try to avoid it, but here there really is no alternative. Personally I think that this is her best album, although I love them all. The songwriting and emotion here seem just slightly above most other releases, with the possible exception of a few non-album tracks such as Siren or Cooling. Regardless of all this, though, Under The Pink is a slice of piano heaven.
