Emiliana Torrini: Fisherman’s Woman

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

This is one of the finest albums of any genre I have heard in a very long time. Almost the whole album consists of Emiliana’s beautiful voice and acoustic guitar.

It’s everything Norah Jones should be, and would be if she wasn’t so obsessed with very poor cover versions of inappropriate songs and over-cooked commercialism. Emiliana has an absolutely amazing voice, and a song-writing skill that blows me away.

This is certainly worth a listen, and I’d definitely recommend buying it.
