I finally had the time to thoroughly listen to the new album. It's a lot more muted than I Am a Bird Now and the songs aren't as immediate or memorable, but it's definitely the kind of album that unfolds with repeated listenings I hope he tours Australia again; the show I saw a couple of years ago was sublime.

I really enjoy this, but I'm gathering from the discussion here and reviews that I've read that it's not representative of the Antony discography. Where should I head next? If it helps, I really enjoyed Antony's guest vocal on Rufus Wainwright's "Old Whore's Diet"...

Well, he only has three studio albums and a few EPSs, so I think that it is difficult to identify a "representative" sound. But if I were forced to choose, it wouold probably be "I Am a Bird Now."

I Am a Bird Now is what I would say as well. It looks back to his first album well with all of its bigger sounds, but it also has its quiet moments, like the new one. It makes for a good middle of the road exposure to Antony's music, I think.

So has anyone heard Swanlights yet? It's streaming on NPR and is super hot.

I gave it a listen a few nights ago. I really liked it on first listen, and suspect that I will grow to love it upon multiple listens. The duet with Bjork is absolutely ethereal.

Best choice for a duet ever.

Antony guests on a few tracks from Bjork's Volta as well. You might want to check those out as well, if you have not already done so.
