Boomkat Product Review:
Smith's untimely demise has left an incandescent, almost perfect body of work. As domino are no doubt set to discover - tragic characters sell records, and that's a shame in some respects. A set such as this debut then becomes infamous as the initial waxings of some kind of doomed soul - in fact the personal, intimate, highly private delivery indicates an artist already fully at ease with a reduced palette of colour, and all the richer for it. Nearly ten years ago this sounded like someone whispering in your ear, these days its almost become a voice inside your head. Essential.
