The Angel in the House

From the recorders and whistles that open "So Much Mine," to the Latin rhythms of "Fatso," The Angel in the House is a fiercely and unapologetically feminist album that addresses, among other themes, maternity, anorexia, and the underlying horrors of domestic life. Both in her spirit and in her narrative manner, Jonatha Brooke, who wrote almost the entire album, is a descendant of Virginia Woolf, and these songs, each one a beautifully arranged and well-orchestrated tale of longing, love, and/or loss, are some of her best. A well-crafted and thought-provoking album, arguably her best.
