I Am A Bird Now by Antony & The Johnsons

Antony & The Johnsons’ ‘I Am A Bird Now’ feels a long time ago now - since then we’ve had the Hercules & Love Affair and Björk collaborations, the ANOHNI solo material - but if anything the distance only allows one to appreciate this music even more. The album which won the 2005 Mercury Music Prize remains one of the finest LPs to ever scoop the gong, a set of baroque and mournfully beautiful chamber-ballads in the mould of Rufus Wainwright (who guests on ‘What Can I Do?’) and Alison Moyet.

9/10 Jack 4th February 2018

I Am A Bird Now is one of those albums you will be delighted to have found. It is moving, eloquent, beautiful, soulful and most important of all, unique. The lead singer has a wonderful voice that was immediately reminiscent of Nina Simone and from the album opener "Hope There's Someone" you know you are in for a very special album. While only just 35 minutes long it is perfectly crafted in every way. My favourite track has to be "Fistful of Love" which has a great soul feel to it and the combination of vocals and horns makes for a magical song indeed.
