An Pierle - Helium Sunset (2003) Retail CD
My girlfriend (who's from Belgium herself) introduced me to An Pierlé some time ago, and i've never stopped thanking her for doing so!An Pierlé's second full album is a mindblowing masterpiece of (usually) piano-led, heartfelt music. Unlike her first album (Mud Stories) with it's heavy, often discordant piano-only songs, Helium Sunset is more gently thoughtful, and features a full band - including An's boyfriend on guitar. Indeed much of the albums' inspiration seems to come from that relationship, and in many songs such as the wonderful Kiss Me (one of the most gentle and truly sweet balladsmore… i've ever heard), you can really feel the intensity of their relationship. While many songs retain the intensity and bombast of her previous album, each and every song here is a hundred times more tuneful, and shines with a beauty that is undeniable from the first listen. And like all the best albums, each listen has you discovering something new - this an album you'll come back to again and again.And how do i know that it's an album you'd come back to? Because this album was released in Belgium about a year ago! My girlfriend brought the album over with her not long after it came out, and after one listen i was handing her the money to buy me a copy when she returned to Belgium. In fact we were both surprised to discover the album had been given a release in Britain, since An doesn't often play live - and certainly as far as we know hasn't played much outside of Belgium.If you like female singer-songwriters you should definitely take a chance on this album! An has been compared often to Tori Amos, but whilst Tori fans are likely to find much to like here, the only real link between both artists is that An also plays piano. An herself has said that she doesn't see the connection, especially since unlike Tori, An has never been taught how to play professionally and admits she can't read music. Not that this has stopped her from making a great deal of standout music (in fact it seems to have even helped in many ways).An Pierlé is a true original from beginning to end, and it would be honestly sad for such a great album to pass by without people ever noticing. Buy it - there isn't a single bad song on the whole album, and who knows, she may even decide to play a show over here if enough people discover her...Oh, and Sarah - thankyou again... ;o)
