Biography

At the tail-end of the Summer, just before work began on her second album, Laura Marling sat down with producer Ethan Johns to discuss her ambitions for the record. She gave Johns just two instructions: "This is very much my stepping stone," she told him. "And this is England."
I Speak Because I Can is indeed a coming of age, its 10 songs imbued with a richness and a ... Read more in Amazon's Laura Marling Store

Editorial Reviews

Special two CD edition includes a bonus disc of a live recording from Laura's 2011 York Minster show. 2011 release, the third album from the British singer/songwriter. Since her emergence from the London Folk scene in 2007, Laura continues to be one of the most exciting musical talents of her generation. A Creature I Don't Know is a boldly accomplished and endlessly impressive album. Ten songs of intricate and captivating storytelling, buoyed by Marling's rich voice, evocative lyrics and the precise, confident playing on every track. Her delivery is pitch perfect, her voice going from delicate whisper to brooding murmur and rousing wail, sometimes all in the very same sentence.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must listen to this! March 4, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A Creature I Don't Know is Laura Marling's third album. A bit more obscure than the previous ones, it is also a clear evidence of Marling's evolution as a singer/songwriter. The songs in this album are the kind of songs that might call your attention or not the first time you listen to them, but if you continue listening, these songs grow into you and you can't stop singing them to yourself.
Some of the lyrics are enigmatic and all of them are extremely poetic, and if you let yourself go and accept to be led by Laura's warm and sweet voice, you'll find yourself in places both mysterious and enchanting. The highlights are "Don't ask me why", "Salinas", "Night after night", "Rest in the bed" (haunting atmosphere), and last but not least, "Sophia", one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the 2 disc version June 14, 2013
By Xagan
Format:Audio CD
The 2 disc version includes the bonus disc Live From York Minster 10/21/2011. Good as the studio disc is and it certainly is, the bonus live disc is the real gold here. Not an off moment on the entire disc. Grab it while it is still available. As se becomes more well known and she should, this disc will become a real collectors item. In fact it will be hard for her to top what is on this bonus disc in her future studio efforts. A strong unexaggerated Five stars for the bonus disc, 4 for the studio disc.
