5.0 out of 5 stars Love (this) Resurrection, 10 May 2013
This review is from: The Minutes (Audio CD)
I have long been wondering what this CD would be like, having read reports for the past few months. There were good advance reports but it can sometimes work against the music, because one's expectations are high.

Honestly, I love this CD and I find myself listening to it over and over again (in succession). The production and the music itself are of great quality, as is Alison's voice. It could be said that Alison vocals are a bit subdued, or that there is a certain passion from other records that is missing, but for me personally, I don't see it. I think they were going for a different effect with this record, and it really works. There is still passion, but for me it simply is expressed another way. Listen to the vocal pleas in the refrain of "A Place to Stay", for example, or on "Apple Kisses", the seductive delivery of the lyric "sipping soft vowels from your apple kisses". It isn't the full out vocal of songs like "Invisible" or "Should I Feel That It's Over", say, but it is packed with emotion, and it comes through.

There are also moments where the electronics are more subtle, like in the at times almost folky "Filigree", where vocal layering in the chorus creates a lush backdrop.

The wonderful thing about this record is that it feels, in the end, like itself. You probably won't listen to it and think that it is trying to sound like something else. They seem to have created a unique and cohesive whole that to me sounds simply like "The Minutes", and which you may find yourself listening to for years.
