Torrini, Emiliana : Baby blue

She can't sing. She has no range. Her moving torch songs are in fact waddling poodle-haired power ballads.

Through the looking glass and into another dimension where [a]Bjork[/a] is actually crap. She can’t sing. She has no range. Her moving torch songs are in fact waddling poodle-haired power ballads. And instead of top-of-the-range soundscapers she uses ex-Tear For Fears frontman Roland Orzabal to produce this guff. And her name is no longer [a]Bjork[/a]. It’s Emiliana Torrini. She’s still Icelandic, though, and she’s still signed to One Little Indian.

Now why would they want to do a thing like that?
