Martina Topley-Bird - Quixotic album
Performer: Martina Topley-Bird
Genre: Electro / Rock
Title: Quixotic
FLAC album size: 1981
Style: Trip Hop
Country: UK
Released: 2003

Taken from her debut solo album "Quixotic", which the critics described as "a collection of songs that stand up as timeless classics, all pinned together b. .

For the most part, Quixotic sees Topley-Bird straddling tasteful chillout vibes with patches of soul, blues, and rock thrown in for good measure. The far too short "Intro" is the deepest excursion into Topley-Bird's blues jones, and if it were just another minute longer, it would be worth the price of admission on its own.

Martina Topley Bird: Quixotic. Topley Bird's voice is honeyed, gritty and utterly distinctive, and few of the songs here do it justice - least of all Too Tough to Die, an otherwise thrilling sample-laden dance track by David Holmes that has her stomping and snarling. The tracks that impress most are pared-back and eerie: Ilya (part-produced by Tricky), which shimmers and glides like a pool of mercury, and Lullaby, a hypnotic heat haze of floating, almost dissonant guitar. On both, Topley Bird's voice is girlish and aged, sweet and wicked, languid and dripping power
