Product Description

About the Artist

Hungry Lucy began by chance in 1998 when War-N Harrison (Fishtank No.9) was asked to contribute to a Depeche Mode tribute album. War-N asked vocalist/lyricist Christa Belle to record vocals for the song "Blue Dress". The couple found they worked together so well that Hungry Lucy was born.

After spending a year writing and recording, the Autumn of 2000 saw the release of Hungry Lucy's debut CD, "Apparitions". The album garnered much attention across the US and Europe for it's combination of pop song structures, trip hop grooves and Christa's haunting vocals & other-worldly lyrics. This attention of this debut CD lead to a licensing deal with Belgian label Alfa Matrix and subsequent European relase of Apparitions:Revisited in Fall of 2001.

After spending Spring and early summer of 2002 performing live, Hungry Lucy completed their next full length album entitled "Glo". Glo captures all the elements that Hungry Lucy are known for while continuing to explore other genres such as jazz, blues and europop. Once again, the album received critical acclaim and glowing reviews worldwide and expanded Hungry Lucy's reach to a much wider audience.

In the Summer of 2003, Hungry Lucy embarked on a tour with Pittsburgh's ThouShaltNot across the Western and Midwest regions of the United States. This gave people of chance to see, as well as hear, what Hungry Lucy is all about. True to form, Hungry Lucy delivered stunning performances along with sychronized video accompanyment. Several one-off shows in late 2003 / early 2004 (including performances with Cruxshadows & Wolfsheim) followed. In Spring of 2004, it was time to head back into the studio and capture the new material Hungry Lucy had compiled over the preceding months.

The result, Hungry Lucy's 3rd full-length CD, "To Kill a King" brilliantly displays the duo's passion for musical contrast and clever songwriting.

COM for sound samples of the album if you hate buying cds without hearing them first.
RPK
The title song is actually quite triumphant in tone and there are some enjoyable remixes which are actually dance-trance music.
Slinky's Friend
Lucy has amazing vocal qualities, and regardless of whether I liked the music or lyrics, I loved her voice on every song.

To Kill A King is one of the years best dark trip hop cds. The cd tells the tale of a lonely and miserable Queen who desperately seeks to be free from the cruel bondage of her King. The Insert of the cd booklet gives you the storyline that follows the tracklisting beautifully. The songs are all emotive and filled with such eleborate beauty that just makes this cd breathtaking. I was a fan of the bands first album APPARITIONS and liked GLO...But, This album is by far the best one yet! Some people consider this music gothic trip hop or Dark Electronica...But, to me, this cd is just beautiful. There really is no LABEL to put on it. Check out WWW.CDBABY.COM for sound samples of the album if you hate buying cds without hearing them first. This album is an excellent addition to any collection of gorgeous soundscapes. The cd even comes with 4 remixes of songs, which are excellent!

A conceptual tale of a Queen summoning the courage from within herself to leave her unloving husband, 'To Kill A King' is Hungry Lucy's third release, and quite possibly their best endeavor yet. It's rare to come across a group that not only lives up to prior achievements but actually surpasses all expectations. Hungry Lucy just keep growing as musicians, outdoing themselves with each new album. I absolutely adore 'Apparitions' (it's destined to become an underground classic) and 'Glo', for me, was an amazing accomplishment but 'To Kill A King' is simply phenomenal and I haven't praised a record with as much fervor as this in a while. Christa Belle's vocals are sweetly enchanting, the beautiful yet melancholy lyrics contain the strongest songwriting I've heard from them thus far, and War-N-Harrison's ingenious musings are as haunting as ever. The melodies here are a lot tamer then they've been in the past but I was hardly disappointed by that. Quite the contrary, I feel their more subtle approach was a smart direction for them to take. They've proven they can do more than simply put some good beats together (and, believe me, they can!). There's still some synthy electronic stuff present, however, they've shifted gears a bit by incorporating more acoustic instruments this time around. There's even a piano solo on "A Lifetime Remains" and what sounds to me like a violin, though there's no mention of it within the credits, giving the Null Dull Mix of "You Are" a Middle Eastern flair. The song I especially love, though, is the emotional ballad, "My Beloved", including additional vocals by Alexx Reed from ThouShaltNot and Kristy Venrick from The Azoic.Read more ›

"To Kill a King", the title track on Hungry Lucy's third album is by far the best and most creatively written song on the entire album; but not representative of the album as a whole, either in terms of musical style or lyrical composition. Musically, this album runs a gamut of musical styles, from recognizable trip hop, to piano led compostions, to minimalist, slow beat electronica with a folky new age style reminiscent of Love Spirils Downwards. Lyrically, there are songs of triumph and tragedy, inspiration and desolation, survival and sorrow. As a novelty, the album is supposed to represent an integrated whole consisting of pieces that elaborate the tale of a queen and her escape from a King and lifestyle that feels alien to her. In my opinion, it doesn't really work. I don't feel like I'm listening to the score of an opera or musical, but to an album of individual songs. Each song feels like it stands alone and the diversity of musical styles and themes from song to song lends this impression. There are thirteen tracks and four remixes of four songs. Additional remixes of tracks on this ablum are available from the Reigndance EP available exclusively from alfamatix at [...] The lyrics to all hungry lucy songs are available on their website [...] I recommend this album to people who like trip hop, darkwave, goth-pop, projekt music, or introspective, emotionally evocative lyrics. I don't really think this is their best album yet, 'Apparitions' made a stronger impression on me, but perhaps because I had never heard them before.

This is the first CD by Hungry Lucy that I've listened to, and for me it was an acquired taste. On the first couple of listens I found it intriguing but not exactly compelling ... but for some reason I kept putting it back in my Discman ... and gradually and then suddenly I was loving it. The title tune is the one that sticks in your head most, but for me all the songs on this story cycle CD are memorable and unique. To me, this needs to be digested as a whole, as we follow the female protagonist in her journey from "killing" her king to forgiving him. We're traveling with this character on her internal trek. This is really not overtly "gothic" music, although it can generally be put in that category; it is sad and even somewhat mournful, and I kept envisioning medieval castles and landscapes as I listened. The title song is actually quite triumphant in tone and there are some enjoyable remixes which are actually dance-trance music. I've just gotten HL's "Apparitions" based on my love for "To Kill a King," which overall I've found to be a very nourishing, satisfying listen.
