I love the new Marianne Faithfull Album!

There is something about a smokey voice singing up from a gutter filled with mercury, blood, glitter, and Champagne. I think I prefer singers whose voices have personality over those who have ability. No one will ever top Nina Simone in my book.

No Child of Mine - Marianne Faithfull - Before the Poison

you can't beat tom waits for gritty gravelly voices. i'm a big fan of his and i'm certainly not listening to him because he's aesthetically pleasing...

Love Marian.
I have a few of her albums. She gets better with age, just like fine wine.

I remember she played God in Ab Fab more than a few times. ;-) I'll have to check it out... I've got one of her imported english greatest hits cds...

hugs
