Antony along with Bryce Dressner from The National is also interesting to look at. Normally Antony makes some amazing and unique music with Antony and the Jonsons, but here it is all stripped down but still has the magic touch from Antony Hegarty, that makes you wanna cry. This number is a cover of the old song written by Bob Dylan.
Dirty Projectors collabroates along with David Byrne, the former leadsinger in Talking Heads. David Byrne has always been experimenting with other interesting artists like Brian Eno, Fatboy Slim, and this newest project with St. Vincent. This song is no exception. They combine the great and recognizable voice from David Byrne with the clear voice from The Dirty Projectors singer.
Justin Vernon gets to be two times on this album, where the first one is from the project where he first got attention, Bon Iver. In this project he sings in a high falsetto voice, like one there is never seen so high before. The second song is with another member by The National, which is also really great.
The National itself also appears on the album, where they actually come with one of their best songs ever. In my opinion at least. They have never failed in making fantastic music.
it's no suprise that Arcade Fire is appearing on the album when it is said that the album features some of the indierock's biggest stars because with just three albums they have proved to be one of the most interesting and newthinking artists out there. This song is not my favorite of them but still is a damn good track.
One of the biggest suprises on this album was the track with Cat Power and Dirty Delta Blues who do a cover of Amazing Grace. This vibe that is on this track is unbelievable there is so much soul and feelings in Cat's voice and the music is extremely bluesy and amazing.
This were one of my favorites tracks from the album but others such as Hey Snow White, El Caporal, You Are the Blood, Die, Sleepless, Gentle Hour, Cello Song, Train Song and Feeling Good is also some great tracks which makes the album more consistent as a whole album.
I do not like every song as much as i do in each individual song but together they still make a flawless and consistent album, that fits well together in whole.
