Album Review: Eliot Sumner – Information. It gets more and more awesome the deeper it seeps into my soul. Gordon Sumner is up there with Reginald Dwight and Paul David Hewson in terms of Trivial Pursuit zingers. The album inspired me to swim backward into Sumner’s catalog, the I Blame Coco record that I missed a few years back, but remember with a smile since my devilish greyhound was named Coco before we changed it to Gozer: The Destroyer (long story).

Her sophomore album Information comes as a stunning maturation of her music, a collection of bold, genre-bending tunes, with Sumner glitching, humming and grinding her way to a truly powerful record. Editor's Review. Her voice was closer to Maja Ivarsson of The Sounds on the Coco record, but now the deep, rich huskiness of her alto is setting in to provide ample depth, mystery and beauty to her intoxicating soundscapes. Sumner’s voice is mesmerising, and at many points incredibly reminiscent of her father (Sting, of The Police).
