St. Vincent: Actor
Buy! - (4AD)
Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) follows up her promising 2007 debut Marry Me with an album that’s just as bold, but also more cohesive and less whimsical. Like Marry Me, the sound could be described as cinematic orchestral-pop flavored with classical, jazz, rock and more, but while the shifting, complex arrangements feature a wide variety of colorful instrumentation including strings, woodwinds and keyboards, Clark’s fuzzed-up electric guitar is much more prominent this time, giving the album a heavier, more rock-influenced sound. Her voice is as sweet as ever, while the lyrics are more cutting, making for another thrilling contrast on an album that’s filled with them. 4/24/2009 - Don Yates
