   A really good night at Rough Trade...  A powerful and intense set by Anna , including a beautiful Swimming Pool and away. 
 A decent amount of us turned up and it was great  to see some old faces ...

  Listened to Hunter , overall I think it is an excellent, powerful. beautiful album with some inconcistencies.
  This is obviously a far more commercial album than the previous two, and to me some of the originality has been lost , which  attracted a lot of us to Anna in the first place...

   There are some really outstanding tracks including Hunter, Swimming Pool, Wish, Away , Eden, but also some weaker tracks, including Alpha and DBTG which I don't like at all... ,

  Anna has used the album to express her views on gender, feminism etc, whether this will resonate with the majority of her fans, only the album sales will reveal.

 But  this is an album of the superb musicianship as one would expect from Anna and Mally .  Anna's voice is by far the best we have ever heard throughout.

  Agree with AC that the biggest loss is that of Mally's harmonium.  This added the distinctive sound to her music, and was a big visual draw to the live act.   I have been to many festivals where many people who had never heard of Anna ( unfortunately the majority ) were intrigued and drawn in by Mally with her Harmonium and assorted percussion instruments..

01. As a man [8/10]
02. Hunter [9/10]
03. Don't beat the girl out of my boy [2/10]
04. Indies or paradise [8/10]
05. Swimming pool [10/10]
06. Alpha [6/10]
07. Chain [9/10]
08. Wish [10/10]
09. Away [10/10]
10. Eden [10/10]

   These are only my views, hopefully others will follow..

Well, I think - having listened to Anna’s new album many times - that my ratings would be:

As a man (9/10)
Hunter (9/10)
Don’t Beat the Girl... (8/10)
Indies or Paradise  (9/10)
Swimming  Pool (10/10)
Alpha (8/10)
Chain (9/10)
Wish (9/10)
Away (10/10)
Eden (9/10)

But, of course, taste is a very personal thing. I think, however, that it’s a very fine album indeed....

I've listened to it 4 times.

I'm a bit disappointed with a few songs, specially 'Alpha' (which was my favorite when I watched the Paris performance). I do miss Anna's "drag queen voice" (as I read it somewhere), her operatic singing, more guitar solos and the harmonium sound.


Overall rating: 7,7

01. As a man [7/10]
02. Hunter [8/10]
03. Don't beat the girl out of my boy [9/10]
04. Indies or paradise [8/10]
05. Swimming pool [8/10]
06. Alpha [5/10]
07. Chain [8/10]
08. Wish [7/10]
09. Away [8/10]
10. Eden [9/10]
