Thanks for the tip, I didn't know she was still recording. Can't wait to listen and be moved!

Good to see so many appreciate her.
Rereading my original comment and a few more spins (of the hard drive) and I may have overstated the "narrative style". There is a dramatic return of the Voice of Authority in the 11.5 minute centerpiece "Another Day In America" but most is musical, just more subtle and ethereal with loose structure. I am liking it more and more every listen and it has the type of depth that I'll unravel over years of listens.
She is one of the very few artists that takes me far away with the first sound of her voice. Maybe some of it's me and the years of hearing her but it's so hypnotic and moves me into another place...and only her music, her voice, can get me there.
Thanks for the heads up on this one. Good stuff
It didn't matter who took over after W. he had us in such a hole no one could get us out of it. This is a what have you done for me lately society and we can't reverse it in this short of time. Obama has made his fair share of mistakes, but no one can ever set this country back the way the W. admin. did.
Funny you mention the extension...your amps and woofers will get a workout on track one for certain.
Also some appearances from Antony. He has become the TPain of the Avant Guard! For a while, Tpain was on every R&B single recorded and popping up in every video...Antony is on every artsy compilation or avant guard record out there thee days. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan (Antony not TPain)!
Jax...I have some lesser known offerings from Antony you can check out:
The Jamie Saft Trio Plays Bob Dylan - Antony does a version of Living the Blues.
Dark Was the Night, Compilation - Antony contributes I Was Young When I Left Home with Bryce Dressner (The National...I think). Crazy great song/performance!
I'm Not There, soundtrack - Haunting version of Knockin On Heavens Door from Antony & the Johnson's.
More but those are one's I have off the top of my head....
Many thanks, Richard. I'll check those out (I have Dark was the Night, and do remember the cut from "I'm not there" - his voice is unmistakable). Of course there is his contribution to "I'm Your Man", and one of my favorite cuts from him is the title cut from his EP, The Lake, in which he puts that Edgar Allen Poe poem to music...stunning! The first cut on "I am Bird Now", Hope There's Someone, is also quite stunning and a real test for a system IMO when the music becomes very dense and layered. His latest, The Crying Light, is excellent.
Yes, any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Ain't it the truth. Still remember the first time I listened to "Life On A String," the walls rattled like never before."Life on a String" is one of a few hdcd'd discs that make me believe in the process.
Funny you mention the extension...your amps and woofers will get a workout on track one for certain.This new release HDCD?
