2XLP Double Black Vinyl, Wide Spine sleeve & DL card. 2000 pressed. First time on double vinyl for this buried treasure from the legendary singer/songwriter. The post-Geffen string-driven classic including a re-imagining of the gorgeous ‘Life Is Sweet’ set in a glorious baroque pop setting that elevates her songs into a Sondheim-esque gravity. An overlooked masterpiece from the heady days of 2003 that remains timeless and just as poignant today. A brave and challenging recording that set the tone for her most recent success. Remastered from the original sound source. “Exceptional!” Record Collector. “An album about amorous love, full of its dizzying heights and its turbulent spirals into the abyss of loss.” AllMusic. “One of the most underrated lyricists pop music has ever produced.” AllMusic.
