2007 US strictly limited edition  45RPM Half-Speed Mastered 2LP set, pressed on 180gram HIGH DEFINITION VINYL -Though the minor hits "Wonder" and "Jealousy" bore a reasonable resemblance to Merchant's work with 10,000 Maniacs, most of Tigerlily clearly established her as a solo artist apart from her former band. The record's first single, "Carnival", drove that point home, with a hook based more on rhythm than melody and the haunting voice of Katell Keineg adding an intriguing dimension to the chorus. Elsewhere, much of Tigerlily is remarkably solemn and subtle, from the low-key opener "San Andreas Fault" to the widower's lament "My Beloved Wife" to the eight-minute opus "I May Know the Word". Also of note is "River", an emotional ode to friend and fallen star River Phoenix

by the former 10,000 Maniacs vocalist highlighting Merchants confessional song-writing style, superbly presented in individually numbered pasted gatefold sleeve with printed inner bags sealed in perforated tear strip bag

Not too many albums can stand the test of time and in case you havent realized it this album is approaching its tenth year since it got released yet it sounds as fresh as the first day Natalie froze time and space in this this her first album out of 10000 Maniacs So many people thought shed been lost when she left the band yet everyone was happy to find that she was able to find her space in music on her own the album came accross as very personal and down to earth with an ability to be playful alternating with melancholic in a seamless way Manny Hernandez
