Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Patrick Wolf (autoharp); Marianne Faithfull (vocals); Victoria Sutherland (violin); Katy Wright (cello); Derek Apps (alto clarinet); Mark Rudland (trombone); Flip Philipp (glockenspiel); Werner Dafeldecker (double bass); Richard Eigner (drums); Anna At Eastcate, Jeremy Shaw, Patrick Pulsinger (hand claps); Jo Apps (background vocals); Austrian String Quartet.
  • Additional personnel: Edward Larrikin (vocals).
  • On his 2007 major-label debut, THE MAGIC POSITION, Irish singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf largely abandons his brooding Nick Cave-like demeanor (expertly displayed on '05's acclaimed WIND IN THE WIRES), opting instead to embrace the aesthetic of a brightly bedecked, life-loving dandy. What hasn't changed in this POSITION is Wolf's wildly inventive approach, which fully showcases the young performer's expressive croon and multi-instrumental skills on tracks ranging from the swooning, New Romantic-influenced "Bluebells" to the pulsing, beat-driven "Accident and Emergency" to the delicate, jazzy "Enchanted." As unpredictable and fascinating as Wolf himself, THE MAGIC POSITION demands attention for its kaleidoscopic vision and bold, dynamic sound.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.80) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Patrick Wolf has gotten twice as good with every album, and he's already up to his third....Wolf's joy is contagious..."

Spin (p.91) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ll colors, twinkles, and buzzes...there's hardly anything he can't twist into polymorphous eroticism."

Magnet (p.112) - "Wolf plays to his strengths on THE MAGIC POSITION: classical structures, Broadway-caliber staging and a resounding rich singing voice."

CMJ (p.39) - "[T]he most electrifying instrument laid to tape here is Wolf's theatrical croon, which shape-shifts between Morrissey's emotive falsetto and Dave Gahan's dangerously sexy baritone."
