5.0 out of 5 stars Knockout!, 26 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Ragged Kingdom (Audio CD)
This album brings together Britain's foremost female interpreter of traditional songs and a band who are basically journeymen of the folk/rock genre for a second album 21 years after Freedom and Rain. It is also,IMHO,very, very good. I can't remember the last time an album had such an immediate effct on me, (it was probably Steelye Span's Please to See the King or Sergeant Pepper as a matter of fact), and it has rarely been off the stereo since I purchased it.
June Tabor has a truly unique, deep voice with a timbre that lends itself particularly to melancholy material but here, with the backing of the Oysterband, she slips off the shackles and delivers a wonderful selection of songs ranging from the traditional such as Judas to the contemporary That Was My Veil. For me the outstanding track, (from an outstanding album), is the interpretation of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart which is both beautiful and moving. Alan Prosser's vocals work nicely with Tabor's simple yet rich delivery,and instrumentally the band is superb and very tight. In fact both parties benefit from this collabaration and are greater than the sum of their parts, which is as it should be!
I can't recommend this album too highly and would politely suggest you give it a listen.
