Amoeba Review

01/20/2009

Three years after his last full-length, I Am A Bird Now, enchanted legions of fans with its intimate heartbreak cabaret, Antony Hegarty is back with a new masterpiece, The Crying Light. Swathed in strings and twilight atmosphere by avant-garde composer Nico Muhly, Antony's wondrous falsetto soars past joy and despair into some timeless new poetic landscape, and gives you the courage to follow. The instrumentation is equal to the amazing vocal performance, with plaintive piano melodies, ethereal harp and arpeggiated guitar lighting the way. Antony's otherworldly, vibrato croon and piercingly emotional lyrics are not for everyone, but there's nothing else like them, and if you love Nina Simone or Bjork, The Crying Light will probably change your life, or at least be your new favorite record.
