i first fell in love with emiliana in the movie Crazy/Beautiful with 'to be free', to such an extent that i got this album imported to australia. i was not let down.
a self-described drama-queen and dreamer, emiliana brings a playful vibe to music that would otherwise be quite melancholic.
very much an 'easy listening Bjork' or 'female Magnet', the music can be used as a background for almost any emotion. superb.

I won't waffle on....but, I will say that Love In The Time Of Science is a moving collection of happy, laid back, dark and disturbing songs from an Icelandic girl who will go far. From the sunny sounds of 'Unemployed In The Summertime', 'Summerbreeze' and 'Easy' to the dubby, menacing beats of 'Dead Things' and 'Fingertips', the lyrics are almost schizophrenic, dicing with demons and dancing with angels in the same line. WOW. The track 'Telepathy' could be the next Bond theme with its soft and then dramatic crescendos. I really can't bare to be not listening to this album. It's my medicine. A definite recommendation to those who like the sound of Massive Attack, Portishead with a small helping of Bjork.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jan. 2006
Format: Audio CD
Most people have heard her unique vocals, singing the hauntingly, sorrowfully creepy "Gollum's Song" during the closing credits of "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers." But very few people know Icelandic singer Emiliana Torrini by name. Which is a shame, because her trip-hop/electronica album, "Love in the Time of Science," is a unforgettable one.
While sitting firmly on a seat of trip-hop and gentle pop, Torrini stretches her wings with a variety of musical types. It's made up of light electronica like the cool, sweet "To Be Free," and murky pop ballads with a slightly morbid edge. "Keep my daughter in a jar/she can't get out/she won't go far," Torrini croons in one song.
She keeps the cool, dark edge with the eerie "Wednesday's Child" and "Telepathy," the offbeat jazz of "Dead Things," and even a few songs that are fun and upbeat pop, singing about friends who hang out and goof around in the summertime. There's even alien avant-pop that defies classification, where Torrini sings creepily about how tuna fish float with "bellies to the moon."
Comparisons to Bjork are inevitable, since they hail from the same country and have similar vocal styles. However, Torrini's music is smoother and less distant, less electronic and more organic. It's also graced with more traditional instrumentation and a warmer sound. Her music is a different shade of electronica-pop.
Her voice has a haunted, slightly eerie quality. Furthermore, it has the flexibility to be warm one moment, chilly and creepy the next, allowing her to gracefully slide from one kind of song to another. Her thick Icelandic accent makes her singing even more enchanting.

This is one amazing woman. Such a voice! This album is a motley bunch of songs with one common element: that voice. It is an odd mix of Bjork (sorry, it's inevitable) and Nelly Furtado. The music is chill out for the most part...very "meditate". Aside from the two harder songs Dead Things and Telepathy, this is the kind of music you could go to sleep to...kinda like Groove Armada. Telepathy should be candidate for the next 007 theme (sounds like something by Garbage or odd modernised Slade) as it is truly mind-bogglingly good. Summerbreeze reminds me of buttercups and daisies. Unemployed In Summertime and Easy make me smile. To Be Free makes me cry. This album is essential for anyone who likes chill out dance music, meditation, Bjork, or smiling. So buy it!!

One of a kind, fantastic CD. Every song sparkles. I must have heard over 2000 albums. This is my favourite, the only one that has ever moved me to write a review so that more people hear it. Read the other reviews for the detail. Believe me you want to treat yourself and buy this ASAP.

Emiliana Torrini is quite simply the most captivating and original artists to appear for a long time. I have been a big fan for about a year now and even went all the way to Reykjavík to buy her first two albums "Croucie d'oú lá" & "Merman". I met her at a recent concert in London and she is not only warm and friendly but also strikingly beautiful. "Love In The Time Of Science" is her first solo album to be given an international release and is truly deserving of success as it's dreamy and often melancholic melodies are better than any. With an amazing voice (captured on the startling track "Telepathy"), Emiliana is destined to go far!
