Eliza Carthy – Neptune
aaamusic | On 10, May 2011
Eliza Carthy returns with Neptune, the album which will definitely grant her the status of music goddess.
Neptune enfolds like an emotional diary, giving the listener an insight to Carthy’s emotional journey in the past decade. Despite being personal and mellow is not the kind of sickly, girlish album we all dread: every emotion is treasured as if the last one; passion drips from every single note on the record.
Feeling at home surrounded by a variety of genres, Carthy plays with her musical knowledge and personal taste to surprise the listener – successfully achieving the goal. Don’t be surprise if you think you’re hearing sunny, happy melodies, flamenco notes and west end golden hits: they are just part of what Neptune has in store for you. In all these unusual surprise, the only link to her folk past lies in Britain Is A Carpark – absolutely stunning.
