Another fine CD from Bat for Lashes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are a great many competent female singers releasing CD's but few stand out or have anything new to offer. Natasha Khan is one of the rare singers who does produce something different and worthwhile. Listening to her last CD's I did detect the hint of Bjork and Kate Bush but unlike them, Natsha is very easy on the ear, she can hold a tune and is much more melodic and interesting. Like the excellent Two Suns, the musical arrangement is unusual and helps set the whole presenation apart from the mainstream pop being produced by many others, which gets tiresome. With a few more listens I suspect I may give this five stars but at present I am unsure whether she is exceptional or just very pleasant to listen to.
I decided to buy this purely on the strength of the last CD, Two Suns, and I can see that this is a progression and a more mature production. I will certain get her next CD too. Bat for Lashes CD's are a worthy addition to my music collection . . . and , yes, it is a great cover.
Shame it is packaged in a cheap and tight cardboard sleeve (how can you get the CD out without touching the surface?). That nasty packaging loses at least one star in my rating.
