A Perfect Stranger - The Island Anthology

A Perfect Stranger - The Island Anthology

This meaty compilation focuses on Faithfull's 1979-85 work, starting with Broken English, her unexpectedly powerful comeback as the world’s hippest middle-aged punk rocker. Dangerous Acquaintances solidified her return, while 1987's Strange Weather raised the bar with exquisitely curated and arranged cover versions spanning a half-century. "Ballad of the Soldier's Wife" foreshadows the two albums of (mostly) Kurt Weill songs Faithfull recorded after A Secret Life, her moody 1995 pop-noir experiment with Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti.
