AN­GEL OLSEN

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - THE BEAT -

Phases

The lat­est col­lec­tion by the tal­ented Mis­souri songstress cherry-picks suc­cu­lently odd of­f­cuts from her pro­lific ca­reer. Along­side Olsen’s spec­tral and en­thralling voice, her daz­zling and deliri­ously wigged- out elec­tric guitar makes a cer­tain mark as on the suit­ably named Spe­cial.

An­gel’s own songs (Only With You, Sweet Dreams) have heav­enly orig­i­nal­ity and fas­ci­na­tion aplenty, but the daz­zling cov­ers here, in­clud­ing her mag­nif­i­cent ver­sion of Spring­steen’s Tougher Than The Rest, have to be heard too.

Def­i­nitely has wings enough to fly.
