Absolutely beautiful, Antony's voice is really stunning with a solid songwriting's work. I especially love the cover !
Emotion, identity research, love, dark ... this album is dense.

I am a Bird Now.

Somewhere between real beauty and real drama, stands a naked soul and displays the cathartic greatness of emotions.

His voice, and desire to find his identity creates this album to be one of the best. Fistful of Love and Ladys Story are incredible.
