They've put up a new video for the single on their website:

Antony and the Johnsons news

I'm not exactly blown away by it yet, so let's see if it grows on me, I'll be picking up the EP anyway this week.

I think the song is pleasing...very peaceful and a bit sad. But the video? I don't think I ever need to see that again.

There are a few reviews of the EP over at rateyourmusic. Most people seem to like a few songs a lot, but not the whole EP. Sounds like it's still worth picking up, though.

I'm just listening to it for the first time and I'm already amazed by the first half. Kiss my Name is fantastic!

I listened to "I Am a Bird Now" a few days ago on a whim, and was extremely impressed. The vocals especially are simultaneously haunting and moving, with the light orchestral accompaniments only enhancing that effect. I will definitely be checking out "The Crying Light" in the very near future.

I did buy it, and it's worth the $$$. I find it more subdued and delicate than his first two albums, which have far more dramatic, grandiose moments. The beauty is still there, though, which is a trademark of Antony's music. It is a sparkling, beautiful gem of a record, that's for sure, just a touch different from his first two.

So yes. Get it as soon as you can.
