It's the voice -- fluttering like a torn flag against a stormy dramatic sky. The heart of Antony and The Johnsons is the voice quavering with emotion, a beast with three hearts -- one on each sleeve and another in it's diva's throat.

  1. I like this song alot. It kept popping up on my ipod, literally about 4 or 5 times randomly in the past couple of days. Great voice; slightly camp but in an operatic Freddy Mercury way. Its so sweet you can't help but fall in love with it.

  2. hey david, thanks for your input. i have recently acquired the new cd and will write a review for posting shortly -- also i will be seeing antony and the j's in toronto this coming wed. if any of you get a chance, go see him.

  3. Great site btw - i was given the link by a friendly soul on the 'sea and cake' forum. Thanks for all the great music.

    I saw Antony for the first time in my life, it was at the Opera House in Sydney, Jan.29th 05. He was fantastic, sang some of Leonard Cohen's. I like his rather theatrical way of singing.

    He has the most beautiful voice I've heard in my life, until I get their cd I've just been living on mp3s I find so thank you for that.
