An intense album that establishes Calvi as an artist to be reckoned with.
Anna Calvi's second album, like her first, is awash with wild drama and passion. The difference now is that the results edge towards an overall sound that aims to be more subtly beautiful. Becoming more personal in tone, Calvi doesn't strike any obviously self-conscious poses to provide songs that feel more real than imagined. As we move from the glorious rock stomp of Eliza to the spaghetti western orchestrations of Sing To Me, it's Calvi's soaring vocals and gritty guitar that commands our attention. An intense album that establishes Calvi as an artist to be reckoned with.
