The works of Lord Byron, John Keats, Thomas Hood, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson are not just for tortured young men in frock coats, wandering alone across rainy hills. Far from it: a 74 year-old woman, battered by excess, illness, and a full life, has also appropriated this feverish 18th-century poetry. Marianne Faithfull, weighed down by the experience of surviving Covid, brings great intensity to her recitation of these verses, and makes them very much her own. She has called on the reliable Warren Ellis, a former Bad Seed, to cut a musical backcloth which offers both restraint and grandiloquence. Ghostly synths and heavy strings wrap around Dame Marianne's craggy vocals. These songs are wreathed in a dreamy twilight that stops just short of the macabre; the landscapes roll by, and the poetry of these past greats steps out into our troubled present. Nick Cave brings piano and percussion to most of the tracks, and Vincent Segal his cello. Even Brian Eno comes in to play clarinet on The Bridge of Sighs. The result is a gorgeous backdrop for a magnificent album, and one which confirms that Marianne Faithfull, a fixture of the rock scene since the early 60s, is still a great and unique artist. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
