This review is from: Before the Poison (Audio CD)
Her best album since "Broken English", the whole record has this lush, dark vibe about it. It takes a couple of listens to get used to Marianne singing against the more gritty, guitar-based tracks, while others are more reminiscent of "Strange Weather". Having said that, there is not a single bad moment and she makes each track her own. Particularly brilliant is the Nick Cave collaboration "There is a Ghost" with its heartbreaking melody. Her voice is richer than ever and versatile enough to capture the emotion and story behind each song. She really just keeps getting better and better!
