Thea Gilmore once again knocks it out of the park with this non-traditional holiday album. Her deep and gentle voice probes both pagan and Christian themes, although her relationship with that aspect remains an uneasy one -- but a source of enormous inspiration as well! "Sol Invictus" is a powerful, almost mystical invocation of the sun at the depths of the solstice.

I love Thea''s voice and I agree that her songs are well crafted. This CD was the perfect antidote to all the cheesy Xmas albums being played over the holidays. She has a beautiful, haunting depth to her voice and a definitive style of her own. I heard about her on NPR last year and have now bought all of her CDs. She''s my new favorite singer songwriter.

As the season of goodwill and institutionalised retail therapy looms close, I went and got my obligatory Christmas album - this year, it''s ''Strange Communion'' by Thea Gilmore. It''s my 5th. album by her - she''s my favourite English singer-songwriter; and with this album, Thea presents us with a personal (and somewhat ambivalent) perspective of Christmas (alt-Christmas?).

On most songs, Thea is in good voice (exceptionally good on some); and her own lyrics remain well-crafted with ingenuity (and also, I think less impenetrable as some have been on earlier albums). This album is less ''acoustic'' than ''Liejacker'' - with keyboards, electric guitars and drums/percussion being played more frequently; also, there''s some fine cello playing on a few tracks.

The album contains 5 songs (all written/co-written by Thea) in her ''classic'' style: 4 slow tempo numbers - ''Thea Gilmore''s Midwinter Toast'' (the song that comes closest to a traditional Christmas song), ''Drunken Angel'' and ''December In New York'' (both are beautiful songs of typically austere elegance), and ''Old December''; plus an up-tempo rocker - ''Cold Coming'' (featuring electric slide).

Then there are the remaining songs - most of which are less characteristic of Thea''s style of music; a few comments about these :

SOL INVICTUS (a cappella) (Thea Gilmore arr. Jennifer John) - An atmospheric slow tempo song with pagan undertones. Whilst not as repetitive as a chant, rhythmically there are some similarities. Its real high point is the stunning and dramatic choral arrangement.

THAT''LL BE CHRISTMAS (Thea Gilmore & Nigel Stonier) - The song has entertaining lyrics with more than a hint of cynicism; it also has a catchy (but rather cheesy) pop-singalong feel to it. It''s repeated at the end of the album, but with a different instrumental arrangement and mix.

LISTEN, THE SNOW IS FALLING (Yoko Ono) - Thea occasionally switches her vocal style to a spine-tingling ''edgy-breathy'' delivery but, with this song, she almost whispers the lyrics. Sung in the same key throughout with predominantly synth-driven accompaniment. I think the song itself is unremarkable (but not unpleasant).

THE ST STEPHENS DAY MURDERS (Elvis Costello & Paddy Moloney) - Up-tempo song with some wry humour. A duet with Mark Radcliffe, whose vigorous singing tends to overshadow Thea''s own vocals. I''d describe the song''s style as a combination of Irish folk and English ''pub-rock'' - fiddle, whistle and recorder accentuate the Irish flavour. It''s not my cuppa - although I''d probably find it more agreeable in a live setting, having consumed copious amounts of alcohol beforehand.

BOOK OF CHRISTMAS (Nigel Stonier, excerpt Louis Macneice) - Spoken word songs don''t do a great deal for me, no matter how good the lyrics might be - in this case, an excerpt from ''Autumn Journal'' by the Irish poet Louis Macneice. The accompanying synthesized sounds (crackles and all) plus harmonium add some further interest for the listener.

The standout tracks for me are : Sol Invictus, Thea Gilmore''s Midwinter Toast, Cold Coming, Drunken Angel and December in New York.

Whilst my reservations about some of the songs reflect my own personal tastes, I would still urge fans to check out all of the samples before buying (but the ''Book of Christmas'' sample is not representative of the song, because it doesn''t feature Thea''s recitation). Some of the songs are as good as anything Thea has done in the past but, in my opinion, there are a few others which are questionable choices. I would not recommend this album to anyone looking for a more conventional, easy listening Christmas album - Thea Gilmore''s albums have always veered towards edginess, and this album is no exception.

Thea is now surely one of the best singer/songwriters this country has got. Following on from her superb live album comes this masterpiece. More of a winter theme than a true christmas one the whole album is beautifully produced. Thea is now at the top of her game, her voice sounds better than it has ever done. Nige and Thea have written all but two of the tracks. "Listen The Snow Is Falling" is a Yoko Ono song and "St Stephens Day Murders" is by Elvis Costello There''s a lot of fun on this album and just enough of Thea''s cynicism to keep everyones feet on the ground. Could she also have given us a new Christmas radio perennial in "That''ll Be Christmas"? Thanks for the great present Thea. Here''s to Faith Hope and Gluttony!

Fabulous singer discovered by my Mum.. We played 3 albums of Thea Gilmores whilst driving out and about. If you haven''t heard her then give this a go. I would suggest you try "Murphys Heart" as your first album of hers.
