Talk about one of the most depressing and underated artists of all time,she was goth before there was such a term...that voice, like Marlene Deitrich on heroin, heh. After a recent tragedy I pulled out "The Marble Index" which I always considerd music to slash one's wrist by, love it but only when in the mood, then I dusted off "Desert Shore". Equally amazing and disturbing. Next I'll be pulling out the Sylvia Plath! (no, it ain't that bad).
