I totally dig this album. It introduced me to Marling, and whoa, I was hooked immediately. Everything from "Gurdjieff's Daughter" onward is sweet sweet sweet. Give me the first half of Marling's "Once I Was An Eagle" and the second half of this one, and I'll not listen to anything else for 6-9 months.

I guess everyone compare's Marling's voice to someone else, to try to get a handle on it. I first thought it was the voice of a 45 yr old woman who had seen some rough days and rougher nights, but hey, she's like 25. Wow. Her speaking of lyrics reminds me of Laurie Anderson ... but what do these comparisons matter anyway? She has some powerful skills in all arenas -- writing, singing, playing -- and I intend to deeply dig her groove (to vaguely paraphrase Deee-Lite) for the foreseeable future.

Give this a listen ...

Yes, a powerful voice! I would add the earnestness of Ani DiFranco and the vocal phrasings of Chrissie Hynde.

Laura Marling may have a lot of "sound alikes", but she has rolled all of these qualities into her own unique voice.
This is indeed an excellent album.

There are shades of Joni Mitchell, PJ Harvey, and Bob Dylan, but Marling's voice is powerful and distinctive. Where previous albums progressively hinted at her talent, this is the album where everything comes together: Great songs, great production, great performance. Highly recommended.
