Well it is nice to be there at the beginning, don't you agree? I have a bit of a thing about female solo recording artists, so it is nice to have 'discovered' Anna Calvi at the time of her debut album. I read about her in 'Q' magazine. Reading the CD notes I note that Anna Calvi plays all of the instruments on this album (except drums / percussion). That's impressive because there is some really interesting lead guitar on this album. The album opens with a dark and broody instrumental 'Rider To The Sea' and then works through nine fairly rich, dark, intense and I have to say sexy tracks. Without exactly being goth in style, this album does definitely offer a moody, night time kind of listen. Admirers of Nick Cave, PJ Harvey will appreciate this album. I am not going to heap too much praise, but the words 'great potential' come to mind. As I say, it's great to be there at the beginning of what could prove to be an interesting recording career.
