An astounding third album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a fan of Bat For Lashes since the debut album 'Fur and Gold.' Here we are now on the third outing for Natasha Khan and I am happy that her journey of self-disovery continues apace.
The lyrics are more meaningful, heartfelt and deep whilst the music is more multi-layered and richer.
I am happy to say that I say Bat For Lashes live and Natasha's voice is simply amazing, despite the layers of music threatening to overwhelm the vocals she can really blast out the notes.
For the first time in a Bat For Lashes album there is an included lyric sheet which to me is essential, her lyrics are very poetic and are worthy of reading and absorbing.
What attracts to me to Bat For Lashes, apart from the standout lyrics, singing and music is the fact that Natasha Khan is a person of dignity, she attracts fans through her formidable talent, she does not need to be 'papped' falling out of a taxi or lying drunk in a gutter.
A woman of rare integrity in these celebrity obsessed times and a band of unparalleled skill and depth who are worth watching.
