Boomkat Product Review:
After coming up with the wonderful 'Bring me the Workhorse' album last year, Shara Wordon (aka My Brightest Diamond) received almost universal acclaim. It was her gorgeous and supremely powerful voice which carried the record, but the production helped it along, a subtle and restrained blend of jazz and modern classical which gave the record an otherworldliness and made it stand out from the crowd. It certainly wasn't an album I would have thought was crying out for the remix treatment, indeed remix albums which teeter on the the re-interpretation of a song with vocals are often the most jarring, especially if you're familiar with the original tracks. Wordon however was desperate to see her vocals interpreted in different ways and offered each album track to a different producer - we have Lusine, Alias, Gold Chains, Murcof, even Skynet's old partner in crime Stakka makes an appearance! Of course with an album like this it's not all going to make sense, especially as it jumps from genre to genre so frivolously. Although there's an admirable bravery to this, it's not very easy on the listener, and coupled with some of the tracks being more than cringeworthy it's a very mixed success. The problem is that some of the producers don't treat Wordon's vocals really in the way they need to be treated, adding effects and reverb which ends up in the track sounding like a Lamb B-Side. However, when it works it really works - Murcof's delicate reworking of 'Dragonfly' is breathtaking, as is new artist Haruki's gorgeous homespun version of 'We Were Sparkling'. Worth a closer look, but handle with care!
