Patrick Wolf - The Magic Position

Patrick Wolf makes a statement even before he opens his mouth – his style and performance is on par with his music. His third album, The Magic Position, is by far Wolf's 'pop' moment. With songs like "Get Lost," "Accident and Emergency," and the title track all emphasize new levels of musicianship. Hints of the old Wolf are present in the eclectic choice of instrumentation and arrangements. For all the pop-perfect tracks there's a hint of raw darkness ("Bluebell") casual introspection ("Augustine") or the rock-tronica ("The Stars"). The Magic Position is nonetheless Patrick Wolf's most accomplished work to date.
