5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful progression..., 28 Sep 2006
This review is from: The Butcher and the Butterfly (Audio CD)
this album is, of Drink Me. Unlike Taxidermy and Drink Me, it is less in diverse ambience and more focussed on overall songwriting, each of which is its own little masterpiece.

The sound is admittedly very different, but this isn't a bad thing. It is simply a natural progression, with soaring melodies (Pull Me Under - with a hypnotizing sense of drowning in it), and the heavy basslines of Medicine Jar. Katie-Jane also exposes the mature side of her vocal ability too, with great power in Wolverines and the ferocious intensity of In Red. This is all beautifully contrasted by the inevitable mellow tracks, where Miss Garside shows off her very intimate vocal style, aptly named above as 'Katie-Jane in cowboy boots'. Childproof gives us a little preview of her new project, Ruby Throat. A beautiful melody about picking herself up again, it both haunts and touches, and has a lovely amount of country influence.

There isn't one track you'd want to skip, all beautifully captivating and resonant as always of the wide range of pure emotion Katie-Jane and the band have always captured perfectly.

If you have liked anything Katie-Jane or Crispin have done before, there is no reason to not be completely drawn into this album.
