Alright, I'm a sucker for female singer/songwriters, I admit it. Occasionally one comes along I really take a liking to, and Laura Marling falls within this category. Her voice is rich and melodious with just the right amount of character without becoming too stylized. The guitar is a sweet instrument in her hands. I play a bit of guitar myself and she really is quite good. Some of the tracks are beefed up by the backing of Mumford and Sons, so it is not all stripped down acoustic. Even the 3/4 time songs are well handled. Currently this is the CD in my car and I am not tired of it yet. All in all a very impressive debut. I will look out for her other work.
