iTunes Review

Like her brother Rufus, Martha Wainwright makes music that’s at once forthright and over the top. On her self-titled first full-length, she merges dreamy pop and folk-rock with lyrical details that reflect a not always happy life. But strength and sensuality radiate from these tunes. It’s hard to believe that she doesn’t already see herself like “the boys (who) run faster and . . . throw harder.” Wainwright also rains a spectacular dis on father Loudon’s head with “Bloody . . .,” a surprisingly (given its title) measured song of disgust that nonetheless makes Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” sound like a Radio Disney jingle. The balance of anger and beauty on Martha Wainwright gives a glimpse of a unique singer/songwriter with much promise — some of it already fulfilled here.

Customer Reviews

Excellent !!

Cet album est vraiment bon. Profond, sensuel, parfois troublant. Juste pour la chanson «Far away» ça vaut la peine. Pour ma part ce fut un excellent achat :)
