  • Summary: The former Tricky collaborator was nominated for the UK's Mercury Music Prize for her solo debut 'Quixotic,' which arrives in the U.S. a year later re-sequenced, re-designed, and re-titled (as 'Anything'). Included (as on the original version) is a collaboration with Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan, as well as tracks recorded with Tricky and David Holmes. Expand

  1. Bluesy, fragile and gorgeous.
  2. Fresh and imaginative, "Anything" is one intoxicating recording.
  3. Makes the case for life after trip-hop. [13 Aug 2004, p.85]
  4. A fantastic solo debut. [19 Aug 2004, p.120]
  5. 70
    More distinctive than the arrangements, though, are Topley-Bird's utterly unique vocals. [Sep 2004, p.117]
  6. Of course, if you really care for Topley-Bird, you're going to want the full-length U.K. album. But if you just want a great album, Anything will not disappoint.
  7. Anything ends with all expectations met, but little else. Martina Topley-Bird has the kind of voice that deserves beautiful and strange accompaniment, and as such, most songs beg for so much more.
