Antony of the band "Antony and the Johnsons" cut his teeth in New York's after hours cabarets and backing up rocker Lou Reed.His current group has a new album called "I Am a Bird Now".Music critic Jerry Dannemiller has a review.

OK,right up front.The first thing anyone within earshot notices about Antony.Well,let's just listen and take a wild guess.

"Hope it someone would take care of me when I die.Will I go? Hope it someone will save my love for you when they tire you."

Wait.Is this my junior high drama club tryout? Is this person male,female,white ,black? I mean, who cares? Listen to that voice.

"There is a ghost on the eyes of...we will now go to bed..."

I have to admit the first time I heard Antony's voice,I got a serious Freddie Mercury vine,followed by Nina Simone ,* and *(*为歌手名).But after that initial cross check we all do in our heads is complete and really like Antony's voice soak in.That's when it hits you down deep.

Not know it's a love.That fills you every night....don't love...

"I Am a Bird Now" is an intense ten-song collection,sparse string arrangements and playing piano are the general rule from a shifting pan of collaborators known collectively as "the Johnsons".Wisely they never get in the way the true star of the show.

"If my cool life got poisoned,I was born...Not a girl then know...I.."


Antony ,whose last name is Hegarty,was born in England and grew up in San Jose California.He moved to New York City in 1990.Soon he began staging after hours cabaret shows in which he was mixture of Drag Queen and Punk Rocker.The shows developed an underground following with mouth spread and Antony released his first record in 2000.So for this ,his second foray,he recruited some well known admirers including Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, Devendra Banhart. Flamboyant1 80s' pop star Boy George even makes an appearance on a track called " You are my sister".

"You are my sister and I love you.We all love you,all love your dreams come true."
"We felt so differently there."

Now most of the celebrity2 contributions, especially Lou Reed are little more than window dressing3.It's also a brief CD,only 35 minutes long and Antony doesn't even sing on two cuts.But that aside this is a fantastic record.It's thoroughly4 modern but it feels lived in.It's got an old soul.And honestly, for as often as the term soulful gets tossed around like salt on so many flavorless records.For once with the Antony and the Johnsons,the term definitely applies.

"One day I will grow up a beau-beautiful woman."

The album is " I Am a Bird Now" by Antony and the Johnsons.Our reviewer Jerry Dannemiller writes for the Colombus Dispatch.

"One day I will grow up a beau and beautiful woman.One day I grow up a beau and beautiful girl.But for today, I am a child .For today,I am a child"
