pretty much faultless...,
This review is from: Anglicana (Audio CD)
well i thought that rice was pretty damn good, but when i got this for christmas (i had to restrain myself heavily from buying it beforehand) i nearly fell over. everything i liked about rice is included here - eliza's beautiful and highly characteristic voice, her wonderful fiddle playing and her flair for arranging songs in unexpected and delightful ways..
although i am a big fan of paired down arrangements usually, i'd trust any song in eliza's hands. alongside more traditional folk arrangements we have elements of jazz and anything else she feels will add to the music....
needless to say i am a huge fan, and anyone doubting her amazing vocal skills should see her live. i saw her before christmas at a small gig in edinburgh and she sang a couple of acappella songs, effortlessly keeping the whole audience listening to the story and enjoying the warmth of her voice.
