    I''ve been digging 'Blue for the Most' by Abraham the last few days. The production overshadows the vocals quite often, I think, but it's not a bad thing in this case.

    But really, the production reminds me very much of Bjork's penchant for electronic sounds and Beck's sampled beats and drum sounds.

    Track 6 reminds me very much of Kate Bush's vocal stylings (hell, even the song itself is very reminiscent of Kate). And many of the songs' vocals and lyrics remind me of Suzanne Vega (in a higher key, of course).

    Anyone else have this cool album?

    This album apparently has not been released in the United States, however your description interests me. Have you encountered any web site(s) with clips from the album? I've searched through Google, but didn't have much luck.

    Thanks for the link to the clips on the amazon.de site. Although they're low bitrate "Real" files, they're enough that I can tell that I'd probably like the "Blue for the Most" CD. Now I just have to decide whether I'm willing to spend $25 or more for an imported copy of the CD...
