Antony & the Johnsons - The Crying LightSinger Antony Hegarty has earned high praise for his ethereal, otherworldly vocals. “When I first heard him, I knew I was in the presence of an angel,” Lou Reed said, while Portishead’s Beth Gibbons added, “He has expressed how I feel about being a woman better than I have myself.” The sexually ambiguous Antony, who sings about love, longing and transgendered life, is an undeniably gifted artist. His new songs, including “Aeon” and “Another World,” are moving testaments to hope and human frailty.
