An enjoyable album
on 19 January 2012
I'm guessing that everyone that buys this album is doing so because it is Shirley Manson's pre-Garbage outing. Which is a bit of a shame as it's a very solid album in it's own right. I'll admit, I bought the album expecting a strong vocal performance on an otherwise weak CD, but was pleasantly surprised to find myself with a well-written, well-produced album which sounds great all round.
Musically the sound is similar to Garbage's first album - perhaps a little more pop-y and a little more bass heavy. I'm not going to pretend that any of its songs stand up to the best of Garbage, but they do compare well with their album tracks. All in all, if you're a fan of Garbage and want something similar, you are not going to be disappointed (and probably pleasantly surprised) with Angelfish. On the flip-side, if you hate Garbage you're not going to enjoy this either...
