Synopsis

Album Description
US version includes three bonus tracks, 'The End', 'Your Face' and 'Love You'. Beloved One is impossibly enchanting, a veritable forest of natural beauty. Lou Rhodes is perhaps best known for being a crucial member of Lamb and Beloved One is her debut solo album, released on Infinite Bloom. Rhodes presents a collection of alternative folk with accents of bluesy jazz in the gritty, sweeping perfection of her vocals. The production is immaculate, really drawing out the beauty of Rhodes' voice. At times Beloved One is quite elemental, being sparse in fragments, while in other parts it contains a wonderful harmony of exquisite layer. Cooking Vinyl. 2007.
 

CD Reviews

An artist blooming with talent in her solo debut
Sakis | San Diego, originally Greece | 05/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lou Rhodes was part of a brilliant electronic band called Lamb. The band disbanded and this is her own work, her solo debut. There are no techno experimentations here, no drum n'bass, just mature, life-affirming songs,expressed from the heart and played mostly with guitars, sometimes there's an exotic fluite, some violin, a bit of a piano...
I can't help but be enveloped, cocooned if i may say with warmth, when i listen to this CD. From the carefully crafted artwork of the album to the last song, this album just leaves me be in peace. I can't help but be embraced by these tunes -the embracing cover is quite indicative of the intimacy that permeates this album. It is spiritual, soft, melodic, soothing and well crafted, clearly the product of soul searching. You can hear all the acoustic instruments well, you can hear the whispery smokey vocals and just enjoy this album from beginning to end.
There's an evident reflective sensitivity to some of the songs that i'm glad i discovered and enjoy on every listen. A trully wonderful solo debut by a singer i've always admired."
Hope this album gets U.S. release

"Lou Rhodes creates a tender album that speaks to a maturing audience, if you connect to Nick Drake or early Joni Mitchell or Damien Rice you will find this album to be a beautiful and personal journey. Well worth the import price, just pure and from the soul and what a beautiful soul. Patrick, New Orleans"
Stunning debut from Lou

"Lou Rhodes fulfilled all my expectations for her with her solo debut...absolutely stunning, rich, gorgeous vocals, well constructed songs, an album that makes me hit repeat and listen to both songs in repetition as well as playing the entire album again back to back (which i almost never do).

truly a gem :)"
