Tonight, let in the darkness… Turn the lights down and put on the new album from Antony and The Johnsons, The Crying Light… I want to make sense out of all of this… But we know better then that don’t we? Reason doesn’t live here anymore, left long ago. Fuck it. Who needs fucking reason anyway? Let us drown out the world and hide here forever… Seek shelter from the war raging on outside of these four walls… Turn the lights off… Sit here in silence. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

mp3: One Dove

The Crying Light 2009 (Secretly Canadian)

p.s. The Crying Light is beautiful, dark and honest from the beginning to the end… It will take your breath away. Sit down and lose yourself in this gorgeous music.

    Not something I’d listen to every day, but it was perfect for tonight, when it’s dark inside and out.

    Chris, glad you enjoyed… One Dove was really one of my favs from the album.

    Celera, Antony and the Johnsons is not anytime anywhere music this is true. But when the mood strikes it is glorious. :-)
