Antony and the Johnsons-The Crying Light

The new album from Antony and co. is just as I expected...glorious. After a couple of listens it doesnt match with the calibre of 2005s Mercury Music Prize winning "I am a Bird Now" but it comes damn close.

Antonys voice is extraordinary, swallowing the peaks and troughs of the accompanying arrangements seamlessly and emmiting a voice regarded as one of the most unique and beautiful the world has heard to date. This is music that is medicine for the soul.
