Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too (Audio CD)
Truth be told, the only reason I bought this album was its title - which I found really original and interesting. I had never heard of Martha Wainwright before and I wasn't expecting much from the album. Deep inside, I was sure it would turn out to be just another depressing power pop or folk album by a sad-voiced female singer. I was happily proven wrong! This is one of the best albums I have ever bought. Martha has a great voice and a very unique way of singing. A bit like Kristin Hersh, but Martha's voice is a lot more passionate and most of her songs are a lot more lively so I think it would be totally unfair to say that she's just another Kristin Hersh. The lyrics are catchy and the melodies are beautiful. My personal favorites in the album are "Bleeding over you" and "Comin' Tonight". Been listening to the album in my car for two weeks now and I haven't skipped a track. Highly recommended.
