3.5 greatEasterInTheBatcave | June 10th 16

The cover may look like a Celine Dion album, but don't be fooled. While Malediction and Prayer is not as abrasive as much of Galas' work-- it is a live record of cover tunes, featuring only piano and vocals-- it is still a heavy, emotionally weighty listen. Track two, "The Thrill Is Gone," is one of the few tracks to feature Galas' signature shrieking, but the songs don't need the shrieking to be impactful: see "My World Is Empty Without You" and "Gloomy Sunday." Though the last half drags, but Malediction and Prayer is overall an effective demonstration of Galas' musical versatility.

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★

Better than THE SINGER by a country mile. Though it wouldn't have hurt to have put I Put a Spell On You on here.
