Reseña de álbum

Emiliana Torrini's 2000 debut Love in the Time of Science showcased the singer's Icelandic/Italian voice in a swirl of trip-hop beats and glossy electronica skitters, sounding precisely like Björk filtered through Roland Orzabal's refined pop eardrums. Following the sonic overload that her debuted offered, Torrini's follow-up Fisherman's Woman feels like a sigh of relief. Accompanied almost exclusively by gently strummed acoustic guitars and the soft creaking of boats on a river, her cool whispers bring to mind the charming work of Nick Drake or an impossibly sunny Mazzy Star. Warmly intimate, it almost seems as though the engineers stumbled across a wood nymph with a six-string guitar sighing gently on the banks of a tumbling brook, set up their recording equipment, and then came back an hour later to hear what they had captured. Of course it takes a lot of work to sound this effortless, and producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Carey (alias "Mr. Dan") took great pains to capture the acoustic setting, augmenting occasionally with a quiet piano or light percussion, but primarily allowing Torrini's breathy voice to meander through her straightforward melodies and childlike sentiments. Needless to say, the music is unquestionably beautiful in its simplicity and honesty; summery and warm, and casually intimate but with a real lasting quality. These are the songs that sneak into the listener's subconscious, lying in wait until the perfect spring day to surface in the form of a quiet hum or low whistle, sounding for all the world like a lullaby long forgotten or a folk song never written down.

great voice

Heard her on one of my Pandora Radio stations, and wanted to hear more so I bought Fisherman's Wife. I love it. Silky, childlike voice. The songs aren't repetitive; each are lovely compositions in their own right. I highly recommend it.

*an unknown talent*

She has a remarkable voice, yet it is pretty evident that not many people know of her on itunes. If you go to the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers album, look up "Gollum's Song." That is her best song yet that I have heard. I give her voice five stars, the album I give three to four. It is ok in my opinion.

Beautiful voice, meltingly mellow music

Very mellow, lush sounds and great music to just zone out too. I have another song of hers, Unemployed in the Summertime, which has a different sound to it (more pop, a bit more groovy), but these songs are a bit more folksy, which is nice in it's own way. My favorite song is Lifesaver, for it's untraditional use of the creaks and sounds of the boat in the background. Worth checking out- I really enjoyed her stuff.

An Icelandic singer/songwriter whose music embraces elements of folk, electronica, pop/rock, and trip-hop, Emiliana Torrini has earned favorable comparisons to such vocally gifted artists as Beth Hirsch, Kirsty Hawkshaw, and Björk. Torrini was raised in Kópavogur, where she worked at her father's Italian restaurant and attended opera school as a teenager. After releasing three albums in her native Iceland (Spoon, Crouçie D'où Là, and Merman), she joined forces with Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal...
