3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cut the World (Audio CD)
Antony's voice is of course wonderful but there isn't really that much made of the orchestra. I found the use of an orchestra on a couple of tracks on the Swanlights album really interesting.
On this live album though it seems a little too underplayed. Take 'Another World' for example which has a slow almost inaudible string intro and then is basically piano and vocals. It's good but not really offering any more than the original.
Future Feminism, 7 and half minutes of spoken Antony whimsy might be amusing/interesting live but on CD seems a complete pretentious self indulgence.
The tracks are songs from his 4 albums with an earlier single 'I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy' (which is very hard to track down elsewhere) and one new track 'Cut the World'.
The orchestral aspect works best on tracks like 'I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy', 'Cripple And The Starfish', 'Kiss My Name' and 'Swanlights'.
Okay but not as different as I anticipated.
