ArmenSJan 21, 2009This is a sensational album, one that deserves to be listened to by everyone and anyone who has ever uttered the words I like music.
SPFeb 20, 2009An album of complex, haunting, and lyrical compilations. It's difficult to categorize Antony and his music, but it ignites a symphony of emotions, from exhilaration to anguish. Particular standouts on this album are Aeon, Her Eyes are Underneath the Ground, and Another World.… Expand
Jan 16, 2014Unwelcoming and inaccessible but moments of brilliance
While not their best work, "The Crying Light" is still a strong collection of beautifully arranged songs. The record has that inaccessible feel that often comes with this band, the songs sound so otherwordly that at times the music can be disconcerting and feels like your intruding on one of Antony Hegarty's personal moment.
It's hard to describe but the album gives a very unwelcoming vibe on occasion. You just don't feel like you belong . While quiet a sombre and dark album, musically and lyrically the band are in flying form for the majority of this record. Kiss my Name, one of the very few uplifting tracks on the album is the highlight for me, a real magical song that staggers dramatically back and forth between sadness and elation. The record probably could have done with a few more of these moments. Epilepsy is Dancing is another high point. Overall, this is a very solid if very arty album.… Expand
JorgeBMar 13, 2009beautiful album from one of the best singers right now. Every song is an experimental trial in his own dramatic style.
JaniceMar 4, 2009Hard as I tried, I couldn't find one good thing about this album. It's full of tedious, boring, uninspired tripe with some of the most annoying male vocals I've heard in years. That awful endless vibrato is just...ugh! Unbelievably overrated.… Expand
