Copenhagen act Mary are led by one Marie Ingerslev, whose rich, natural vocals suggest they need to be taken far more seriously than the usual "female-fronted band" efforts. Yet although Ingerslev is the dominant influence, her fellow band members are skilled in crafting accessible, occasionally folk-influenced pop-rock. 'Will You Be There' is a powerful slow-burning opener but by the time the middle of the album is reached, Mary let fly with real emotion. 'Try In My Heartland' uses the kind of jazzy template Stina Nordenstam used in the early part of her career but here Ingerslev replaces childlike wonder with controlled yearning whilst the passionate 'A Prayer From God' is full-on euphoria. Those after more experimental music should check out the mysterious 'He Went Into A Painting' which is equal parts Kate Bush and Crystal Gayle whilst the swirling wall of sound enveloping the title track is another head-spinning experience. Infact, the lullaby-esque 'Cradlesong' is the only disappointment on an otherwise excellent and genuinely heartfelt recording.
