A stunningly beautiful bare bones folk album, done in an exquisitely delicate and unadorned style which gains tremendous strength from it's splendidly stark no-frills simplicity. Diana Darby's breathy, hushed, whispery voice, a ghostly and arresting soprano of incredibly immediate fragility, cuts right to the heart with gut-wrenching directness. The gorgeously spare and shivery, yet still tuneful arrangements create a sound that's both undeniably spooky and achingly lovely. The amazingly dark and despairing lyrics likewise pack a lingeringly eerie punch. A truly haunting and impressively off-beat one-of-a-kind oddity-jerseybeat.com.
