this album was the best i'd heard in a very long time. musically its pretty different to anything else around at the moment. forget the Bjork/Kate Bush/Cat Power comparisons, they dont do the quality of this album any justice. While i like all of the previously mentioned artists, i honestly much prefer Bat For Lashes.
Trophy is menacing and dark, The Wizard showcases Natasha's brilliant voice, Sad Eyes is a moving tearjerker while Priscilla is the albums' catchy ray of light.
this is an album that on repeated listens, reveals more and more to the listener with each play. i cant wait for the follow up! oh, and they're excellent live as well.
