From Shadow to Shadow
ReviewElizabeth Bryson [USA]
From Shadow to Shadow is one of those albums that as soon as you finish listening to it, you can't wait to listen to it again. Some tracks will immediately jump out as favorites, but even the more unusual takes on some of the songs have a compelling quality to them. There is immense musical diversity and originality, not to mention some amazing musicianship!
Another particular favorite is Conquistador: this bilingual interpretation is extremely catchy and captivating! The Angler has a lovely and true approach to the words and has an all-around great feel to it. A Souvenir of London is brilliantly true to the original yet sounding very unique at the same time.
Very fittingly of course, the album ends with Grand Finale. This version truly captures the soulful and intense beauty of the original while having a wonderfully intimate feel to it and again, a very imaginative and original arrangement.
