CD Review: Antony and the Johnsons

Cut the World (Secretly Canadian)

by

By now, you pretty much know how an Antony and the Johnsons album will play out. Frontman Antony Hegarty will wow you with his soaring falsetto and hyper-delicate approach to classical-spiked baroque pop. And halfway through you'll zone out. This live album breaks the pattern a bit by employing a full symphonic orchestra onstage. Still, the highlight is a seven-and-a-half-minute spoken-word piece that doubles as a mission statement.
