Marianne Faithfull - Strange Weather (1987) Retail CD
For those who either remember or have heard Marianne's 60s hit that made her famous, "As Tears Go By", you really must buy this album. Upon reading the track listing, you will feel reassured, since "As Tears Go By" features; however, you will soon be in for a huge surprise.Recorded over 20 years after "As Tears Go By", "Strange Weather" demonstrates Marianne's darker, more mature side. This is the album of a woman who has lived (and almost died), and has chosen to express herself through the medium of Berlin cabaret songs, compositions by Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and Jerome Kern. (These same themesmore… and styles would be returned to again over the next ten years, for example in "20th Century Blues" in 1996.) Then, of course, there is THAT song. Gone is the sweet, chirpy, throwaway pop version of the 60s; in is the angst, the pain of everything associated with being an iconoclastic survivor whose "riches can't buy everything".The voice is fractured, tortured and that of a woman deep in reflection. The album is intelligent, accessible and near-perfect, from the evocative "Strange Weather", to the camp Berlin cabaret of "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", to the achingly painful "Yesterdays", and the startling acapella defiance of "Ain' Goin' Down to the Well No Mo'".This is a classic and timeless album in the true sense of the word. When listened along side "Broekn English" and "A Secret Life", it represents part of a trilogy of the greatest work of one of Britain's most brilliant, demanding, controversial, and essential female artistes.
