Editorial Reviews

"Aeon" is one of the highlights of the critical and commercial smash album "The Crying Light" which debuted at #1 on the European chart. The band appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman for the song's television debut. Antony and the Johnsons' earnest and impassioned cover of Beyonce's
"Crazy in Love", a long time live favorite, is being released officially for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bazaar Song to Cover for This Particular Artist August 19, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I ran across Antony's cover of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" quite by accident. Snow Patrol also covered the song, and I was searching for a live performance by them on YouTube, which eventually landed me here writing this review. "Crazy in Love" seems to be going the same way as Britney Spear's "Toxic" or Rihanna's "Only Girl in the World" in that the songs are so good, strictly as pieces of composition, that they merit cross-genre consideration by a wide variety of artists. I'm honestly not a fan of the Beyonce version. And it's not because I'm not a fan of Beyonce. To the contrary, I enjoy her music very much. Yet, my full appreciation for this tune blossomed only after hearing others interpret the song. Beyonce plays it urban and up tempo, Snow Patrol treats it with a garage-ready lo-fi approach, but dear Antony and his immaculate voice puts an urgent yearning within the song's structure that changes the impact completely. With this version, lines like "Your love's got me hoping you'll save me right now" sound nothing less than threats of suicide. It's one example of how the song lingers in a darker place within this iteration, and Antony holds nothing back even when the lyric "Your love's got me hoping you'll page me right now" might otherwise force a listener to cringe due to it's outdated-ness. In other words, Antony shows the song in such a different light that you might not even realize you've probably heard the song a million times before his version. I realize that A&TJ aren't for everyone. I also realize that the singer's vocal layering can make some of his songs sound a bit recycled. But all of the things that make Antony's music unique bloom in full here. Now that I have heard what he's done with this song, it makes me want to hear just how his take on "Upgrade U" would sound. I have a feeling I'll never get to know.
