"St. Vincent's Annie Clark is a unique talent; she's as much a musician as she is a songwriter, and both her sounds and her words are delicately uncompromising. She blends rock, jazz, electronic, and classical touches together so seamlessly that it doesn't seem remarkable, and as lovely as her voice and music can be, she's too strange and too smart to be merely winsome. Marry Me was as bold as its title proposal suggested, uniting her sardonic, whip-smart viewpoint and jaunty music into songs with beacon-like clarity. Things are murkier, but no less fascinating, on Actor, Marry Me's darker and more ambitious follow-up. Musically and lyrically, the album often feels like a duel (and occasionally, a duet) between Clark's collected, literate side and her raging emotions. This is especially striking on Actor's arrangements and instrumentation, which are even more expressive than they were on Marry Me." - All Music Guide

A Delightful Discovery

Reviewer: DR BARKER
I'm a grandpa, painter, physicist and lover of good music. This LP has been getting lots of turn time since I purchased it a few weeks ago. Very good songs, nice voice and I really don't know anything else about this singer, except I like the album photos. Is she French (the songs are in English). Isn't it nice to handle the big art work that LPs provide?
