5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 1st Album, 18 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anna Calvi [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Anna Calvi is an artist who has been tipped by many pundits to break big in 2011 and this is a strong debut album.It's difficult to categorise her music as many influences are present (Patti Smith the most obvious) but what makes the songs stand out are outstanding haunting vocal delivery and ethereal guitar playing with delay,reverb and tremelo effects in abundance.The standout track is I'll Be Your Man but every song has something interesting occuring.Female singer/electric guitar players are a fairly rare breed but it's amazing that this album's release coincides with the showing on BBC4 of an excellent programme about Sister Rosetta Tharpe who can definitely be cited as an influence on Anna.
I recommend buying the vinyl version of the album as it has been pressed with 180 gm heavyweight vinyl that provides superb clarity and depth to the music.The LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with an illustrated card inner sleeve and in my opinion the artwork is superb.My copy came with a code to download 320 kbps MP3 versions from the record company website.These downloaded quickly complete with the front cover artwork and are a nice bonus to drop onto an mp3 player.I don't know if this is a permanent bonus offer or just available to early purchasers so I recommend an early purchase of this excellent album.I look forward to the "difficult" second album!
