Your Review



All performances, Antony’s voice, the orchestral arrangements, are all so incredibly perfect you’d be amazed that they didn’t actually spends hours upon hours in the studio perfecting every little note and melody. 

Beats Per Minute

For its sheer beauty and execution, Cut the World is easy to get lost in, to believe in.

A.V. Club

There is a 60-piece orchestra to help him execute Cut The World, but Antony is the element that sticks out. 


If ever an artist's catalogue has demanded orchestral accompaniment, it is Antony's.

Drowned in Sound

It’s still a stunning, gleaming celebration of endurance and life even in the midst of bruises and hurt


If you’ve ever lusted after Hegarty’s work re-imagined as The Snowman soundtrack, shit’s about to get real. 

Consequence of Sound

The result is frequently breathtaking, and always satisfactory.

Under The Radar

If there's one thing we're meant to take from this immaculately produced collection, it's that Antony and the Johnsons may be one of the most consistent bands working today.

Purchasing Cut the World from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
