Antony and the Johnsons - The Crying Light
My Thoughts: Love (<)+

Antony Hegarty creates the most heart warming and soul slaughtering music known to man. If you want a sad song, get this man involved. His music is beautiful and terrifying, chilling the room simply by lightly hitting a few piano keys and singing a few syllables. The backing accomanyment on this album weaves itself in your dense carbon matter and invades your senses. It is a SAD album my friends. But it's beautiful. Not my favorite peice of work by this collective, but that's mostly because each song is kind of similar, but if you get in the mood for it, then the whole thing is a triumph.

Antony and the Johnsons - Kiss My Name
Antony and the Johnsons - Aeon
Antony and the Johnsons - Everglade
