By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Feb. 2008
Format: Audio CD
She's been a part of the Polyphonic Spree's twee orchestra, toured with Sufjan Stevens, and many other bands as well, ranging from the Arcade Fire to Xiu Xiu.

So it wasn't entirely clear what style Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) would embrace in her solo debut, "Marry Me." But she does a brilliant job with what she does choose -- a swirling, multifaceted brand of lush indiepop, crammed with quirky instrumentals and charmingly witty little lyrics. It's absolutely stunning.

It kicks off with "Now Now," a catchy little dulcimer-wrapped tune. Clark sings that she's not a carpet, an atomic bomb, a dog, and that: "You don't mean that say you're sorry/You don't mean that I'll make you sorry..." as the strings and drums rev up. She follows it up with the whimsical "Jesus Saves, I Spend," a distinctively quirky pop tune punctuated by babyish noises, smooth keyboard and solid powerpop riffs.

But the album's tone changes drastically with "Your Lips Are Red," which the Dresden Dolls wouldn't be ashamed off -- tortured violins, plunking cabaret piano, erotic overtones and "cities black from all the ashes in downtown." After that, the album slips down into gentler, more lush pop tunes -- quirky romantic ballads, rainy piano tunes, swirling pop epics, and ends with a couple of springtime anti-folk songs.

The best song: "Paris is Burning," a swaying Weimar-styled mass of horns, synth and strings -- it seems to be from the POV of a slain WWII soldier. "We are waiting on a telegram to give us news of the fall/I am sorry to report dear Paris is burning after all/We have taken to the streets in open rejoice revolting/We are dancing a black waltz, fair Paris is burning after all...

Yep, that's about the best way I can describe it. Although I could also throw in Zappa-style guitar, Carole King ballad, broadway, James Bond theme tune.

Yes, it's eclectic, as debut CD's often can be, but it's very much Annie Clark, her songs, her instruments and her engaging voice.

I'll resist the easy temptation to compare her to any number of other female artists and instead, I'd say she's a female Andrew Bird is the sense that she is highly musical, mature, witty and hard-edged.

Your Lips Are Red, Paris is Burning and All My Stars Aligned are my current favourites. I love the upfront vocals too.

I don't think Annie Clark is as good a song-writer as she thinks she is, but that's ok and this album is ok too.
If you're a fan, then it's simply more of what you've already heard.
I just feel like she's one of those artists too concerned with trying to be original and creative that she loses sight of actually making the song good.
The songs are ok, very creatively done, but just ok.

This album is great - the only thing that is preventing me from giving it full marks is the fact that I expected the entire album to sound like the darker first half. The contrast ruins the effect, for me.

The album opens with the outstanding "Now, Now", a soft, feathery song with some beautiful bell-like guitar harmonics and gorgeous vocal harmonies.
This is followed by "Jesus Saves, I spend", a playful pop song with strange baby-like singing added in.
"Your Lips are Red" is an AWESOME song, with dark lyrics, quirky piano and violin lines, and an absolutely stunning middle 8 section ("your skin's so fair, it's not fair...") that contrasts with the rest of the track so perfectly. This track is quintessential St. Vincent - dark and experimental, but with the occassional flash of beauty hidden away.
The title track "Marry Me" is a pretty, playful little love ballad with an absolutely perfect accompaniment. Anyone here know a guy called John? I do; everytime I sing along to this song, I'm serenading John in my head. I guarantee you will do the same.
After the brilliant "Paris is Burning" (dark and atmospheric - my favourite track of the album), the album suddenly slows down dramatically, moving from the upbeat and quirky to the more subtle. It's such a difference, that the latter tracks feel as if they belong on a different album - they wouldn't be out of place on a Dido album.
That's not to say that they are any worse than the first few tracks; "All my Stars Aligned" is an absolutely STUNNING song, with a lush, twinkly piano-based accomapniment and a PERFECT vocal performance.
After a pretty piano solo "We Put A Pearl...", "Landmines" is another gentle, beautiful song with wonderful lyrics.

Gods, it's a complete breath of fresh air to hear an album that's genuinely different and Marry Me is the sort of music that's such a joy to discover. This album is accessible, interesting, beautiful atmospheric, captivating and lots of other nice, positive things. On Your Lips Are Red, the song starts off sounding a little dissonant, the context of which sets up the second part of the track making it sound so much more lush and wonderful; All My Stars Aligned is gorgeous, one of the most beautiful songs (by anyone) with hauntingly sweet vocal arrangements and Annie's voice just lovely; Landmines is similarly lovely, rich, smooth, full-bodied... dip your creamy ear biscuits in; the other tracks are similar only in the use of piano and interesting arrangements, all contributing to a superb album. One reviewer on here likened St Vincent to - excuse my French - Dido! Please do not let that put you off, it's FA like Dido, no, no and thrice no. This is great stuff, not poxy cak. I've heard the term, baroque pop, and Marry Me seems to suit that description - albeit pop in the broadest sense of the term - and if you like Sufjan, Polyphonic Spree, Mercury Rev, Bent, Goldfrapp you may like St Vincent as much as I do. Cheers, Annie, I can't wait to hear more of your stuff.
