Some promising bits but a tad self indulgent,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cyrk (Audio CD)
This album has 10 tracks over around 35 minutes. All songs are written by Cate Le Bon (one a co-write); there are 6 supporting musicians credited (some of the names just about legible through the plastic disc-holder).
The lady has a very pleasant (husky/strong) voice and some nice turns of phrase + there is some decent "psych" instrumentation - can't argue with any of that. However, none of the tunes stick and it gets a bit "samey"- a bit noodley/self indulgent.
There's no information given re who played what instruments and no lyrics are included - both black marks for this purchaser.
Its worth a listen but is a bit too "clever for the sake of it" for me. Clearly some talent but needs to give a bit more to the listener if its to be developed.

I totally agree with Rooksby. I'm totally entranced by her music.
sonobuoy, if you want the information that you crave either wiki it, go to her web page or buy the hard copy, that's a CD in old money, and put some well earned cash in her deserving pocket !

I agree with the others. You have implied that you have reduced your score for the album cos it didn't give you enough information. I can't understand how this detracts from the music...which is brilliant. I'm listening to it as I type. She should have won the Welsh Music Prize with this!
