Not to flog it, but give The Mirror Pool a listen. Gerrard sings
almost 100% without words - it's impossible to describe and we are talking
seriously otherworldly - like Faery without being saccharin or cutesy in any
way. Some of it is even frightening or wringinly sad. Can't sum it up
well, but that's only another reason to like it.
Perhaps someday I will develop a light touch with recommendations,
but that day is not yet :)
