Album Review
Rasmus Rygaard
Reviewed 2010-12-28 
The range is a bit broader than your typical A&TJ release. Still, there’s plenty of heart-warming melancholy and vocal extravaganza. Björk is adding some extra indie cred on track 9, but apart from that it’s just Antony doing his thing with very simple instrumentation. Beautiful.

FCC: Clean
Try: 10, 8, 11, 3

1) 4:32 Fragile opener, half spoken lyrics following the piano line
2) 5:00 Continuing from track 1, slow, Antony’s voice and an acoustic guitar. Incredibly subtle.
3) 3:08 * Piano arpeggios and strings, theatrical vocals and building tension.
4) 3:52 Bouncy, playful vibe. Strange flapping noise in the background.
5) 0:36 Piano/string interlude
6) 6:08 Drone-like guitars in the background. Abstract, free-form, picks up towards the end
7) 3:18 Slow, piano-driven. Deeper vocals.
8) 4:14 * Drums! Still slow, builds to a (relatively) rocking climax with horns and nice backup vocals.
9) 4:24 Piano-driven duet with Björk. As dramatic and weird as you would expect from the combination of the two. Changes tempo.
10) 3:52 ** Falsetto vocals, classical instrumentation with horns for everybody. Chamber pop at its finest!
11) 7:22 * Simple piano ballad. Heart-piercing and oh so melancholic.
