(United Kingdom - Import)
UK special edition of the British singer/songwriter's 2009 album including three bonus tracks: "Alive Alive", a live version of "Release Us" and a radio remix of "Think of Me". When Brit songstress Jo Hamilton released her epic art-pop-embroidered Gown in 2009, few would have predicted the critical fawning that would accompany it's breakout status. The album is a heady musical brew of modern progressive pop, a lushly produced series of cinematic songs that simultaneously feel both classic in Kate Bush-styled scope yet agile and dark enough to bookend easily with Bjork and Bat for Lashes' Natasha Khan. This is grand and serious stuff, but always kept accessible with Hamilton's personal and sometimes playful touch. If you missed Gown the first time around, try it on for size now.
