Customer Review

on 12 June 2006
After playing second fiddle (well, more like first violin) for her contemporaries and peers Rufus Wainwright and Antony and the Johnsons for a little while, the time has finally arrived for Joan Wasser to step into the limelight with her own material, and she does so in fine style on her debut album.

Showcasing and combining her love for punk, jazz, soul and indie songwriting Joan has crafted a disarmingly beautiful and inspiring collection of songs where, expertly assisted by Ben Perowsky and Rainey Orteca, every note, beat and vocal harmony is carefully considered and placed with precision to create a wonderful sense of space and a stunning sound that will shame most other trios who believe they have to make more noise to account for having fewer players.

The key point here of course is Joan's amazing vocal delivery which has the ability to send shivers down your spine, and more than holds up to the recent comparisons to Dusty Springfield. Even a guest appearance by Antony on "I Defy" can't distract from her amazingly soulful singing, and after a couple of listens i'm sure you will agree this is a rare treat and definitely a future classic!

- Highly recommended if you like Rufus, Antony... Actually if you like music its a pretty safe bet you'll love this album!
