Marianne Faithfull's mature voice is an acquired taste - more ravaged than ravishing, raw and raucous - and simple pop songs crumble like old bread from her tobacco tonsils. She is a beast that best feasts on strong bloody meat. Good for her - and great for us - that she has been given the chance to rip into the songbook of Weill & Brecht. Here, as on her live album '20th Century Blues', she inhabits their bare bulb world with a bloodshot eye, a broken heart and a pilfered purse. This is definitely not easy listening. This album demands, and commands, your full attention, and the rewards are sweet.

The casting of Marianne Faithfull in the role of Ana was inspired - though having to drop the role by an octave or two, she brings a wonderful, theatrical bent to the performance of the heroine.
The narrative of the Seven Deadly Sins (as is usual with this genre) holds the litener at a distance. You are not encouraged to engage with, or build a 3D impression of, the characters. This conceit allows it to play with structure and formality.
The extra additional songs are also wonderful - this is a fantastic CD for fans of Brecht/Weill and Marianne Faithfull alike.

Marianne Faithfull's 2004 release of "Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins" comes to us as an outstanding musical endeavor. In 1933, legendary German twentieth century theatrical/musical figures Kurt Weill, who wrote the music, and Bertolt Brecht, who wrote the lyrics, collaborated with the supreme ballet master George Balanchine to create this series of art songs as a ballet `chante,'in German, of course. Not until 1958 did greatly-honored, world-famous British poet W. H. Auden and his lover Chester Kallman create an English translation, first performed at the New York City Ballet in December of that year. It starred the universally-acclaimed greatest international interpreter of Kurt Weill, his widow, German cabaret star Lotte Lenya, who was also the original interpreter of the material in 1933. (In 1956, Lenya had made the German recording of the piece for Columbia Records, which was to release it the following year. It reigns, until now, as the greatest German language recording of the piece, and is not likely ever to be seriously challenged.) The English translation was never recorded until this groundbreaking effort of Faithfull's, backed as she was by the Members of Hudson Shad, and the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under the remarkable direction of Dennis Russell Davies. And any artist will have to go some to top this in English.

The songs are: 1. Prologue. 2. Sloth. 3. Pride. 4. Anger. 5. Gluttony. 6. Lust. 7. Covetousness. 8. Envy. 9. Epilogue. 10. Alabama Song. 11. The ballade Of Sexual Dependency. 12. Bilbao Song. 13. Pirate Jenny.
