Emiliana Torrini: Fisherman’s Woman

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
