After years of appearing as a guest vocalist for Massive Attack, Primus, Tricky & Gorillaz, singer Martina Topley-Bird released her first solo album, Quixotic.
A nice mix of trip-hop, rockand electronica gives off a Garbage sort of vibe, only with a little bit more of soul and blues sprinkled into the mix. As wonderful as Topley-Bird's sultry voice is, her music plays it a little bit too safe to really be nothing more than a paint-by-numbers PJ Harvey clone released 5 or 6 years too late. With folks like Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan, Tricky & score composer David Arnold lending their talents to the album I expected a bit more creativity. It's decent music but nothing you haven't heard before done with more ingenuity.
