By Grr VINE VOICE on 8 Aug. 2008
Format: Audio CD
I really like this album. I stumbled across Azure Ray on the backof the soundtrack to 'Shortbus' (i recommend the film and the soundtrack btw).

Two wonderful singing voices and some really astute lyrics married to haunting, beguiling and atmospheric music.

I think this would especially appeal to fans of Cat Power, Shakespeares Sister, Tori Amos, PJ Harvey and later Kate Bush.

Standout songs are 'If You Fall', 'The Drinks We Drank Last Night' and the title track but there is no filler here.

A great album for a autumn evening curled up with a bottle of wine and a good book.

I feel nothing but bliss listening to any album by the duo Maria Taylor / Orenda Fink. Two charming voices blending, delicate melodies never failing. Have a go, buy the album and I promise you will buy all !

Expected a lot more, my bet - yet in my opinion a bit late 80'~ish and really NOT that good @ all, well, live and learn and keep on trying new stuff; no - I wouldn't recommend, sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars this cd I play over and over 29 Jan. 2011
By kalliela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This group I just found recently and instantly I was drawn in. Sea of Doubts is my favorite song I think. Look to Me, Hold on Love and These White Lights Will Bend to Make Blue are also really great songs as well. These songs I can listen to over and over..I love these songs.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great mood album 5 July 2009
By John A. Zapetis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album became an instant favorite of mine. Some tracks are very mellow as well as melodic. Something to wind the day down with. Not something to hear on the road. Great with wine and candles. Enhanced CD has the video for their single and a second video of a live performance of we are mice. Kewl!

5.0 out of 5 stars their best yet 15 Feb. 2006
By Frank Gualtier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First and foremost Orenda and Maria are deeply introspective and unpretentious poets.

They are mere mortals and they embrace, yet do not crush, that fact. Nor do they see

fit to make it an altar on which to sacrifice their inner children. The culmination

is that of ancient souls very much aware of their current journey through whimsical

youth. That and a profound sense that both the old and the new are keenly aware of

and watching the other with curious fascination. They articulate these things with

a magical ease that would make the best of deeply human sentiment driven poets to

snap all their crayons in half and take a sabbatical in hopes of losing all the lofty

veneer that weights them near to drowning in waters five syllables deep. They don't

get too specifically personal (no songs that tell us the names of everyone they know

and love and hate - a thing that is all too prevalent in music lately) and they don't

dole out huge clay tables of sage lesson. Instead they discuss experience in the

context of experience.

Secondly they both have multitudes of identity in their voices. Energetic and happy

children etched with young women in and out of love and overcast by clouds of the

weary who have been worn much by experience. They sing sing softly. To many a singer

that is a death card as the human voice usually sounds very different at various

volumes and we live in a culture that charms the the loud and often harsh. Yet they

thrive in the serene end of the pool and again it is magically transposed to the ear.

Their voices compliment one another on an order that is seldom experienced. Get to

love one and you'll melt to a euphoric puddle of goo when you hear them both together.

One of the hallmarks of Azure Ray has been an oft song that sort of drones along the

same base few chords and/or rythems. They not only pull it off such that one doesn't

feel they've been 'droned' but they go so far as to somehow keep it sounding fresh.

I suspect part of that has to do with their skill and talent as musicians equaling

that of every aspect previously mentioned. Their choice of harmonies and rythems are

such that they compliment this style. But not everything they do is like that. In

fact on this album they demonstrate a most impressive harmonically rich song 'We Are

Mice' that really tugs the listener in with it's dark delicious alternating dissonance

and consonance with verse must surely have been penned by someone with firsthand

knowledge of clinical depression:

'it's all in the eyes

the reckless way we dream to die

our past is our future

...

we'll touch hands on the street

smile and keep moving on towards the heat

...

it's our lot in life'

And again they depart in 'If You Fall' which is anything but a drone. It's major

chords progress in half steps with a joyful vivaciousness that will have you

bouncing up and down in your seat to tempo. The lyrics of this song fall in

thematically with the the whole 'Hold On Love' thread and have elements of

optimism, fascination, curiosity, and somewhat tame optimism:

'let's talk and we'll fill the air with imagery that lasts forever

...

if you fall will you get up

...

you drift too far will you swim towards the shore

and if you fell in love will you hold on to it

...

you speak so sweet with words so delicate

a glass i hope will never shatter'

And of as mentioned the weary and worn exemplified in 'Look To Me':

'i hold your hand as you slip from me

as i watch your breath i say to myself one day this will all end

...

but i know you're right as i begin to pack

without raising your eyes i hear you sigh oh you'll be back

because i look to you and you look to me

we're a real f****d up family'

This is Azure Ray's finest collection to date. I see they've both done solo

albums and in reading an interview with Orenda Fink I was left with the

impression that while things are still good they are feeling the need for

time away from one another. Not surprising at all but tragic if that should

turn into a permenant arrangement. I understand they've been touring apart,

one as Azure Ray and the other with collaborative efforts with other musicians

which fortifies my concern. While both are good as individuals it would be

a terrific loss to lose them as a team. I'm always amazed at what hits the

airwaves and music videos; at who is raking in sickening amounts of money

and who still tour as if on a serious budget. These two women are the real

deal. If you like what you've read give them a shot. If you like your shot

then spread the word and buy a copy for a friend or two. It's up to people

like you and I to force an obviously corrupt music industry's hand to play

a much higher caliber of music consistently. Your dollar is the vote that

counts.

Best Wishes, -frank-

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lullaby Album 10 Dec. 2009
By Shirley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Azure Ray to me sounds a lot like- Maria Taylor's songs. Both who remind me of The Late,But Great Elliott Smith. Soft voice singing tunes are upbeat and beautifully sad, but true story telling lycrics.
