Cerys Matthews was always sort of fanciable in the kind of way you might have a strange attraction to your best friends mum when you were 9 years old. She's looking...erm... lovingly worn on the cover of this new CD surrounded by a stuffed hare, an eagle and a divers helmet. I've always enjoyed her solo work, her songwriting often top notch and her voice is a beautiful thing indeed. This is a mixed bag of original tunes and traditional songs from around the world. The first three tracks are originals and very strong indeed, beautifully produced with a folk edge (but not overly fakily folk), there's a brief sojourn into flamenco before a hushed take on the traditional 'Wade in the Water' which features Serafina Steer on harp. 'Into the Derelict Night' is a wonderfully evocative song about the expulsion of the Acadians from their lands in the mid 1700's. Let's just say its a long way from 'Mulder and Scully'. My only worry (and there always has to be one) is that if this sounds so good on first listen will it only get worse on subsequent plays?
