4.0 out of 5 stars An original and unusual album, 17 Jun. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Screwing Lies (Audio CD)
This album is distinguished by some beautiful and inventive arrangements. It is not a folk album, it is not a pop album, it is not an indie album. It's essentially unable to be categorised as one thing, and this is one of its best attributes. It may not prove immediately digestible, but one warms to the tracks with each successive listen. The title track is particularly excellent. Katy begins off with an uncanny impression of PJ Harvey, though Kate Bush tries to get a piece of the pie. Then Katy's own clear voice rushes through on an elegant chorus. Moscow Child has beautiful strings, and is reminiscent of early Tori Amos. The last three tracks on the album suggest a keen sense of ecleticism, and show Katy's talent at its best, straddling various genres with her compositions. The album begins and ends with the folky 'Ramble My Rose', the second version being starker and more beautiful. Overall, the album is a flawed but intriguing and appealing debut.
