A Creature I Don't Know is a masterpiece, is a more mature album (musically and lyrically)
Laura is lovely in every aspect and she is moving toward a new sound, unbroken, stormy and peaceful, She sounds better between darkness and innocence...
The Beast, Sophia, Salinas and Don't Ask Me Why...highly recommend!!!
Sincerely she is amazing...nothing to add...the best album of the year...!!!… Full Review »
Nov 25, 2011Laura Marling's I SPEAK BECAUSE I CAN was a rambling testimony to growing in maturity and knowledge, A CREATURE I DON'T KNOW is herLaura Marling's I SPEAK BECAUSE I CAN was a rambling testimony to growing in maturity and knowledge, A CREATURE I DON'T KNOW is her masterpiece, turning in a new, but not completely unfamiliar territory. THE MUSE, an uptempo, light hearted entry to the album sets a jazzy, smokey feel. I WAS JUSR A CARD, a whist full, fleeting touch back to some of what made I SPEAK... .DON'T ASK ME WHY pulls the masses together and explains WHY the world is what it is. SALINAS, one of the albums highlights, where Marling tries out an American rock-y side which she pulls off completely. THE BEAST, the magnificent 6 minute center piece that winds through a dark tale of suicide and depression filled with electric guitar and Marling's unflinching lyric and tone. NIGHT AFTER NIGHT is a Cohen-esque song about the erosion of the human mind and soul. MY FRIENDS, a folky charge through choices and changes is a memorable creation, one of the albums best. REST IN THE BED is a celtic-y, slightly dark, slow idea, rest in the bed of my bones rambles Marling, joined by a series of eerie siren sounds. SOPHIA, a highlight of Marling's career is another American rock-y country-ish masterpiece about the goddess of wisdom, Sophia. Finally, any pent up rage Marling has sung about is released in the peasant-y ALL MY RAGE where Marling touches on an english wife singing about the sacrifices and furies in her life. All in all A CREATURE... is Marling's best album, the darkest and most powerful in its content, highlights are SALINAS, THE BEAST, NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, REST IN THE BED and SOPHIA but there are no bad songs, like I SPEAK... there is nothing to complain about but this is slightly deeper, darker, a spiralling fairy tale that leaves Marling with a completely new route, but still gives her the folk that makes her one of the most talented singers today!… Full Review »
