first or second album?
and go with the physical challenge.
which is maybe her third album?
i really don't know much apart from that it's great and better than her recent one, Begin To Hope.
songs, soviet kitsch and also 11:11 which i *think* is an EP. i am a big fan of her most recent album begin to hope but i think (like many others i would assume) that soviet kitsch is her best one.
the lyrics are kooky and do the whole 'this was pretty serious' thing without hitting you over the head with it.
'do you remember that time when you od'd? do you remember that time when you od'd for the second time?'
I dont especially like that one. It's ok. But I agree with pitchfork on that, when they said that the chage in tone between the ''od'' section and the rest of it was a little too drastic and sudden to be believable.
if you can really buy the 1st two (11:11 and Songs) anywhere.. I think that was the point of Mary Ann
I didnt realise it was hard to find!
also, the songs version of samson is INFINTELY superior to the BTH version
But I can't warm too much to the rest of her material. Maybe I should give her more of a chance
although if you do, getting Mary Ann is probably pointless.
So if you don't, get Mary Ann.
In other news, i really like Begin To Hope, so nerr.
Most of the songs on Begin to Hope deserve that big budget make over
a lot of her songs wanted to be that well produced, but only now has she had the resources to actually achieve it.
soviet kitsch by far.
