5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding evolution, a real grower, 4 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Suns [Digi-Pack] (Audio CD)
This album is now available on Last FM at the moment and I urge you to go there and listen to it. To my mind, its a clear evolution from Fur and Gold - the primitive, tribal influences are still there, but the sound is more dancey, more electronic - it feels very early 1980s synth. However, whilst this early Eurythmics / Depeche Mode synth sounds seems to be all the rage, the lyrics are outstanding as ever from Natasha Khan, and, above all, the album seems to be permeated by a very zen, calm, perhaps even isolated, feeling. I understand from hearing and reading interviews about Two Suns that a lot of it was produced as Bat for Lashes travelled around on tour, and whereas Fur and Gold seemed to conjure up mental images of knights and maidens and Camelot, this album has a strong feeling about the mid West USA about it - National Parks, Canyons, wild nature.

In short - its as beautiful and haunting as you would expect from this wonderful artist. I urge you to catch her on tour - I was fortunate to see her at the secret show at the Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea recently and it was a tour de force. 10/10!

what is the difference between the digipak and the jewel case?

As I understand it, the digipack is where the cardboard is folded out round the plastic at the back which holds the CD, whereas with a jewel case you have the two hinged bits of plastic. I guess the digipak uses more cardboard than plastic, so might be considered a bit more eco, plus in my experience, jewel cases have a habit of cracking in transit, so the digipak is probably more resilient. Both I believe come with the code on the CD to access the free song when you insert the CD into your computer.

Actually in this case it's not actually a digipac but rather a mini LP sleeve. So imagine a fold out LP sleeve miniturised and that is what you have here.
