A Thing Of Beauty

When you combine the voices of Linda Thompson, Antony and the songwriting craft of Rufus Wainwright, you know you’re probably onto a very good thing; and Beauty from Linda’s first album – Versatile Heart – in five years is a small treasure.

A string driven lament/commentary which is just exquisite in it’s production and in the vocal interplay with Antony providing a bluesy undercurrent to the song. The album also features Martha Wainwright provinding backing vocals on The Way I Love You.

The lyrics on Beauty are so great - the Michael Jackson bit is a real surprise coming from her. I wish she would duet with her son, but I think she knows she could never attain the greatness of Persuasion, his duet with his father.
