Grinderman 2 (2010)

The group, made up of Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos

Metacritic Score of 86

Guardian
Grinderman 2 continues the animal theme; this time, the cover star is a lone wolf, let loose in a marble bathroom. Which suits the change in mood, the priapic desperation of the first album having been supplanted by ravenous malevolence. "Kitchenette" offers seduction with a side order of threat ("I'll stick my fingers in your biscuit jar and crush all your gingerbread men"),

Teng's musical style incorporates folk, pop, classical piano, and a cappella. She uses piano as her primary instrument and writes lyrics with emotion, narrative, and personal history. Teng is a baseline alto, but sings over a wide range.

Blogcritic

Inland Territory marks Vienna Teng entering into the group of female singer-songwriters that includes Amos, Regina Spektor, and Neko Case. Her voice and her musical expression capture a full range of emotions through pleasing storytelling and soothing harmonies.
