Brett Anderson - Wilderness (2008) Retail CD
Tricky this one. The album having already garnered plaudits aplenty.
Nothing wrong with simplicity. Nothing wrong with reduction.
I'm all for it. Ms Harvey's 2007 release 'White Chalk' is a fine
example of what is possible when a great artist distils their muse.
Mr Anderson's songwriting abilities, however, leave much to be desired.
This bid for plausible creative gravitas misses its' target by a mile.
Coming in at little more than 30 minutes the nine numbers on this release
display little dynamic or compositional variation.
The narrow formula is unrelenting.
Tedious piano and guitar ostinatosmore… and dreary cello intrusions
support melodic and lyrical material of extremely limited invention.
To be honest I find it difficult (as I would normally wish) to describe some highlights for you. On this occasion I am at a loss.
It is somewhat easier to emphasise the lowpoints.
'Funeral Mantra' with its badly tuned accoustic guitar and ludicrous whisperings and mumblings; 'Back To You' - an execrable duet with Ms Seigner (Why Oh Why ?!!); the creepy whining harmonies of 'Knife Edge' and the extraordinarily awful dirge 'P Marius' are just a few of the treats awaiting you should you dare to cross the threshold into
Mr Anderson's dark, damp and dreary little world.
