Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (No. 967, p.84) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[Antony's voice is] an instrument of delicacy and rapture in which Nina Simone, Morrissey and Joni Mitchell seem to inhabit the same breath..."

Spin (p.61) - Ranked #28 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[His falsetto] resonates with the power of decidedly nonmale vocalists like Nico and Nina Simone..."

Spin (p.92) - "Scarily intimate and irresistibly beautiful." - Grade: A-

Entertainment Weekly (p.143) - Ranked #10 in Entertainment Weekly's 'Top Ten Records of the Year' - "The music - equal parts muted cabaret and heavenly modern hymns - flies like the bird of the title."

Entertainment Weekly (No. 804/805, p.133) - "[A] strings-garnished plunge into the depths of heartbreak (and gender-bending)..." - Grade: B+

Uncut (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Antony's eloquent tales of alienation an love, played with Bad Seeds vigour by The Johnsons, are precious but palatable, and provoke compelling vocals from seasoned outsiders."

The Wire (p.41) - Included in The Wire's "2005 Rewind: 50 Records Of The Year."

The Wire (p.51) - "[I]t's Antony's voice that will move you, make you swoon."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.56) - Ranked #1 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "Not just a truly brilliant record, but a record that seemed to promise that the pop music mainstream need never be the same again."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.62) - Ranked #43 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[L]onesome tales of heartbreak, longing and loss, finally arriving at some kind of redemption. An essential journey."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.88) - 5 stars out of 5 - "[T]his is tough, honest, uncompromising beauty and the next great voice in music."
