    Calvi is unquestionably a great performer, but on One Breath, her work reaches a level of nuance that the majority of contemporary music lacks.

    Anna Calvi is one musician who I hope shall take home the mercury prize, after all, its not every day an album as extravagantly, darkly and emotionally alive as this comes out. One Breath quite literally, takes your breath away. Full Review »

    If first album was THE revelation of the year, One Breath is the alucination we needed. A wonderfull mix of energy, elegance, virtuosity, from intimate to epic ambience, along all tracks with no exception. BEST album of 2013. Full Review »

    Always the same kind of hipstery-chic albums praised by many critics while the music is dull boring and flat.
    Nothing happens, it's just
    generic rock soup all along. Come on, when was it good music? If i Had a choice between that and silence, I would choose silence. Full Review »
