Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars L & M, 9 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Lily and Madeleine (Audio CD)
The rather long, perhaps somewhat over the top, sleeve-notes from Anthony DeCurtis (not sure who he is?) do contain the very apt description of this album in that "beauty resides in simplicity" and certainly this is a fair summation of this record.
The two sisters have exquisite voices and harmonize beautifully and are backed by an excellent albeit restrained band.
It sounded a bit 'samey' on my first couple of listens but it does bloom on repeated plays and despite a couple of lack-lustre tracks i.e 'and tonight' & 'you got out' plus i wasn't over keen on the hand claps on 'i've got freedom', the majority of the tracks are lovely with 'disappearing heart' being especially good.
I suppose it would be classed as acoustic folk-pop but vocally much better than the norm.
They also use the annoying ploy of a secret track (why??) which has the cello more to the fore but it's certainly good enough to be on the album so i don't understand why they felt the need to 'hide' it.
Overall worthy of 8 out of 10.
